    I bought a verizon blackberry 9930 and unlocked it but when I put my telus sim card in, it only finds the rogers network. Can anyone help me please?
    The 9930 will only work on 2G aka EDGE GSM in North America. The Verizon 9930 will only work with Rogers or Fido. Telus is HSPA + / LTE .. Unfortunately it will not work.

    Hey guru's,

    been reading the posts. Maybe it's listed , but I don't have time to sift through all. Can someone advise if I get the Verizon 9930 from US and unlock it here in Canada will I get 3G or 2G? Looks like it's a definite NO on Telus but 2G on Rogers and Fido? is that correct?



    Thanks

    That's correct, once unlocked you will only be able to use it with Rogers/Fido on their 2G EDGE Network simply because Bell/Telus/Wind/Virgin don't have a 2G Network and the phone is not compatible with the 3G frequency they use.

    You can only use the Verizon short code to activate the phone if you have a CDMA cellular signal from the Verizon network. I believe you are outside USA and unable to access Verizon services.

    You need to use the phone's SIM functionality to connect to a local network providing BlackBerry data services. If not unlocked the phone must be unlocked to allow it to use a locally sourced non-Verizon SIM card. When you have a working local SIM you would need to add BlackBerry data to the permitted services on the SIM - the cellular network sets this up. Then setup your BIS account.

    Thanks for you excellent answer branta,

    royalR, branta is correct, if you are trying to use verizon's services overseas that may be the reason you are having problems.

    And if you are unlocked and using a sim from another network, then verizon's short codes won't work while using the new network.

    Also if you are using a different network and the bis features aren't functioning you will need to install your networks service books on the phone.

    Are you using Verizon or a different network?

    Let us know, we are all glad to help.



    By the way Nice to meet you branta, Thanks for taking your time to moderate the forums

    It's very much appreciated,


    Cheers,

    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum. I got a Bold 9930 from a friend which is not yet unlocked and still on Verizon. I need to switch the phone to my Sprint account and thought this would work since they are both CDMA networks. Must I absolutely get his ESN in order to complete the switch? And what steps would I follow to get the phone to my network? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

    Sorry, won't work on Sprint. It is CDMA but completely different com boards. They are not compatible.

    I've got a 9930 which is barely "used" on Verizon USA network.
    I have also purchased unlock code from CellUnlock.net.

    After reading entire topic carefully, first I have turned All Connections OFF, than I have changed the Network Technology from Global to GSM/UMTS, also changed the Network Mode from 3G & 2G to 2G only.

    After that I removed the battery in order to insert my existing T-Mobile SIM card (T-Mobile post paid account with unlimited BIS and everything which I am currently using on my ancient Curve 8900).

    Than Advanced System Settings > SIM Card > typed mepd and got the list of the five items (all "Disabled" except Network says "Inactive").

    Now, here is the problem:

    I typed "mep (alt) 2" (without the quotes of course) = nothing pops up to ask me for the unlock code.

    Than I tried "(alt) mepe" = nothing again!

    Than I tried above combinations with capital letters = nothing again!

    Rebooted the device and tried again with all combinations several times (mep/MEP(alt)2 and (alt) mepe/MEPE = NOTHING AGAIN!

    Wiped the device couple of times, tried all combinations again and again... Another NOTHING!

    So, am I missing something here?

    Why the heck I can't get that prompt to enter the unlock code?

    What are my options?

    Thank you in advance.

    If it reads "Inactive" next to "Network", then it is already unlocked and typing 'mep2' won't do anything.

    So what exactly is your question?
