    I have a TMO 8900 that freezes up after entering the MEP2 unlock code! Have attempted several times, including downgrading from the lastest 5.0 to 4.6 and still nothing works.

    Thoughts?

    Where did you get the code from? I had a friend that got a bad code that caused his to freeze. The seller sent a new code and it unlocked fine after that.

    I got it from TMO. They emailed me the code and instructions. It contained the correct IMEI number and the phone says "code accepted" but then freezes.

    I have the same problem did you fix it?

    It is a hardware issue with the device. Needs to be exchanged.

    Only way we have been able to fix it is for us having the physical phone.

    I have the exact same issue.... it FREEZES when unlock code entered on OS 5... and just reboots when unlock code entered on 4.6, however it does say Code accepted.

    Do you know of any company in the UK that can unlock it?
    Or any way I can unlock it myself by purchased cables or software?
    Thanks

    Generally only happens with the 8900, but VERY VERY rare. Need to either have the phone with us, or you need to exchange the phone

    Phone needs to be unlocked by software and we need to have the phone physically.

    Thanks for your response, I really need this phone unlocked, as it is now a useless brick! it wont even accept an orange SIM... really really annoying, it is only 2 months old aswell... I broke my last one, so Orange sent me a brand new one via insurance.
