    Sorry for adding a question before reading all 55 pages. I just went through a bunch of them and saw that the Verizon Curve is a CDMA phone and can't be unlocked. I knew it was a CDMA but didn't know if that mattered.
    If anyone can help me with some tweeks or tricks to my Curve feel free to IM me to my PIN

    When you see the SIM Card screen, type in MEPD (not case sensitive).

    Type MEP2 (not case sensitive, use ALT-E for the 2). It will ask for your unlock code. Carefully type in your 16-digit unlock code, then click the trackball to enter it. You should see a "Code Accepted" message. If you see that message, then your phone is now unlocked. Network should now show Disabled under the previous screen.

    Turn your Wireless connection back ON under Manage Connections.

    You're done


    Thank you very much, but i have another problem, the code that i have is not valid, do you know a code for unlocked it (my bb)

    Well, I just got my new Bold Tuesday and it is awesome. Called today and got the unlock code and now have an ulocked Bold. Does it get any better?

    This time wasn't quite as easy as my curve. The first CSR wanted to know how much I paid and was it the full retail of 999. I just told him I bought it outright and the price didn't matter. He came back with a fax number and said I would have to fax my receipt along with a request and device info and receive unlock subsidy later. I said thanks and have a nice day and hung up and called back to a different CSR and five minutes later I had my unlock code hassle free.

    Not really sure of the benefits on a CDMA phone, but on a GSM phone you can use any company's SIM card. You can use the phone international.

    No. You will need to get the from your carrier or a paid service. There are no
    universal unlock codes.

    I just want to know if I can make an AT&T 8310 work with my T-MOBILE sim card ?

    Yes, but only if you follow the instructions scattered throughout
    this thread. Also bear in mind that the 8310 does not have a WiFi
    antenna and unlocking the 8310 it won't get you that capability.
    So if you had WiFi on the phone the T-Mobile SIM came from you
    will be losing that.

    I may be stupid but when I go to SIM in the advance options I have ID and a long *** number. Do I want to change Pin2 code? If so do you know the number I am supposed to enter? I'm trying to unlock it for a T-mobile user from an ATT phone. I don't see any MEPD or MEP2 anything anywhere.
    Thanks

    Yes...its that simple. Just enter the code that you receive and that's it. You will need a Cingular (or ATT) SIM card in order to bring up the menu. I have them available if you need one.
    I need an unlock code for AT&T. Do you have one?

    quick and maybe dumb question. i battled with at&t and finally got a lady who gave me the code over the phone (didn't want to give it to me when i told her i was going to canada but as soon as i said italy....bam i got it).

    followed instructions and entered the code she gave me. it said code accepted.

    i powered off and back on. also did a hard reset just in case....

    at&t still comes up on screen (i haven't had a chance to try a different carriers sim card).

    how do i know its unlocked? i don't see a personaliztion screen when i go into sim card in advanced options.

    only see:

    SIM Card: Security Disabled
    ID: 8989899898989898989898989
    Phone Number:
    40455555555

    how do i find the "personalization" screen to know if network is active or not?

    It will always be branded ATT so when you power off and on it will show the ATT logo, as far as on home screen at top where it says ATT it will only change when you insert new sim from different carrier. example if you inset a t-mo sim at top it will show t-mo, but will always say att when boot up phone. In menu under sim card type mepd it should show disabled for all(sim, network,network subset etc.) on that screen if it is unlocked .

    8100 is a little different try meppd instead of mep2, you do not want to change pin code.

    Anybody know how to access the MEP mode? Its not the usual M-E-P-D or M-E-P-P-D. Any ideas?
    What's MEP?

    All you have to do is go into the settings under sim card and type that letter combo in and it will reveal a drop down menu showing security for network, pin, network subset, service provider etc. etc. Once you see that list type mep alt and 2 and it will ask you to put in unlock code which will disable all on that list and you will be unlocked.

    Unlocking the berry as stated above by tmag 2005 also works for the bold. Make sure you repeat the numbers back to them, if they give you the code over the phone.

    i called at&t's international number last week and the guy said i would get an email this week with the code to unlock my curve. I called again since i never received the email and was on the phone for an hour and was told the reason why i didn't receive the code was because unlocking the phone can lock the phone, (doesn't make any sense) and that i have to get an international plan if i want to use it overseas, and that was it. I really want to unlock my 8310 any ideas?

    Sounds like BS, time for you to force the issue.

    You are definitely NOT interested in their $4.00 a minute plan.

    You want your own. Start escalting that call.

    [*]First look up on your phone and note your IMEI. (T-mobile will ask for it and many times they don't know where to find it)
    [*]To find this go to your blackberry options icon (the wrench) and select that, next scroll down to status and select that.
    [*]There is your Blackberry IMEI listed.
    [*]Call t-mobile customer service to get your unlock code (611 from your cell)
    [*]As long as you have been under contract for at least 3 months they will email you an unlock code within 24 hours.

    Once you have the code:
