    Here is the whole story: I received a 9530 Storm from an old friend, he used to have verizon, there is still a verizon sim card in there. The number attached to the sim card has been ported over to another carrier and hasn't been in service with Verizon for a year at least. Now I just want to find the IMEI for the phone so that I can lawfully unlock it, however I can not get the IMEI, and I have tried absolutely everything. There is the MEID code on the device underneath the battery but I have no idea if that even helps at all. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Please ignore all of the above, I am a dunce and have solved my own errors.

    You can use any of those ways to find the IMEI number:
    1) dial *#06# - the IMEI will appear on screen.
    2) under the battery - try to look if there is a small sticker, somewhere you will see in small letters IMEI: XXXXXXXXXXX
    3) Go to "options" > "status" on your blackberry - you can find the IMEI there.

    After unlocking your blackberry you will need a GSM sim card, the verizon sim you have in your device is a "overseas" sim that used for verizon users that traveling overseas.

    Good luck.
