    Hi everyone.

    So, here's the dealio:

    I bought my 8320 directly from RIM (locked for Rogers) a couple of weeks ago. I tried to get it unlocked before I moved to Europe (where I am now), but the guy said he couldn't find the code because it's "not a Rogers phone". He gave me a universal SIM chip thingy to put under any SIM card to "unlock" the phone, and it worked for a bit - but it stopped working severa; days ago.

    I was thinking of doing a remote unlocking service, but I'm still confused about whether my phone is a Rogers phone or not. If it's a Rogers phone, unlocking codes can be ready super fast, and if it's not, it takes a couple of weeks. I need to get this solved ASAP because roaming charges are going to kill me - lol.

    If anyone can help me, I will be extremely grateful. I'm going crazy trying to figure out what to do. If I can't get this solved, it's pretty much $500+ drown the drain.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    I know that BlackBerry does offer the 8320 directly, but it is not a Rogers branded phone. Rogers does not inclued the 8320 in their lineup.

    What does your startup screen display? Mine reflects it's T-Mobile branding.

    The phone isn't branded. After the loading, it has the road with grass, blue sky, etc. - is that what you mean? When I turned it on in Canada, it had Rogers as network name, but where I am, it shows the roaming provider. Is that what you asked? I'm new to all of this BB business.

    Thanks, again.

    the startup screen doesn't signify the branded name, and the blue sky etc is your theme

    HOLD DOWN THE ALT key and type EACE - this will bring up the help screen - What is the VENDOR ID in the first line?
    T-mo = 100
    ATT = 102
    IF you search the boards, there is a listing of all vendors - it may be under UNLOCKING vendor themes...
    I understand you say it is unlocked, however, what # comes up may be who you need to speak with-There are many more knowledgeable people who will read your post and have a better answer than this....
