    Called Verizon, told them I was going on a trip and wanted to use a pre-paid SIM card. They couldn't have been more nice and the whole thing was done in 10 min. Don't pay ANYONE to do something that the company will do for free!

    Is there a way i can tell if my phone unlocked successfully, I entered the code it said it did, just don't have another sim card to try it out?

    As long as it said code accepted it is unlocked. Just change network technology to gsm when you insert and use sim card

    I was able to unlock my BB Storm. It was real simple. I called Verizon's Global Services Dept at 1.888.844.0395 and within 5 min. I was able to unlock the phone.

    Here are the instructions after getting your unlock code.

    Option
    Advanced Options
    SIM card
    Menu
    MEPD
    MEP2
    Key in your Unlock Code

    One thing I hated was removing the SIM card. Why did RIM engineer this device to make it so difficult to remove the SIM card?

    Oh well, other then that, I'm sure glad that my device is unlocked. I've confirmed it with the ATT network. Next, I'll have to try it out on T-Mobile.

    Hi Icedman,

    There are a couple of places you can go in the UK.

    thephoneunlockers.com and blackberry-storm-unlock.com

    I've unlocked about 10 Storms using these sites, very good you get your code straight away.

    they have released the code all you have to do is call 1-888-844-0395 have a great day stormers this is my first trend!!!!!
    Everything worked great. I am going to Jamaica with the girlfriend in a couple of days. I told him that we already purchased a SIM card through the travel agency and would like to use it in Jamaica.

    The guy walked me through a couple of simple steps to unlock the phone. Now I will be able to use the Jamaican SIM or the VZW SIM. But at 1.99 per minute with Verizon I can assure you we'll be dialing using the Jamaican one. Only downside is we'll have a Jamaican number. Whatever Mon!

    Double check! I think what you got was your sim released. This means that you can go out of country and use gsm but on VZW roaming services. If you get your sim unlocked you can use a prepaid card or use any gsm carriers sim card.

    When they walked you through the steps did you get a 16 digit code to enter into phone and then say code accepted?
    I am curious what you got

    Yes it will work for phone calls. Make sure you switch network tech. to GSM on you phone. You will not have data service until your service provider sends you service books after they connect to BIS. This may require having your pin released from VZW

    After repeated attempts I finally got an unlock code by calling this #(800) VZW-4BIZ. It works fine on my AT&T prepaid sim card.

    I have one question for the cognescenti, however, is it possible to switch the phone number displayed on the home screen when you switch networks?

    Dial ##000000 send. When screen pops up put your phone number on the top line with area code hit menu key then save phone will reboot.
