    I am trying to unblock my old Bold 9000 to give to my brother, but I am having a big of trouble. I have looked online and got an unblock code, which I paid for, but when I follow the instructions nothing happens. Wonder if someone could help.

    I put in my sim, go to options, advanced options and then sim card.

    I then type in mepd. I am then told to type in mep2 or mep4 but neither works. When it works it should allow me to put the code into unblock but it doesnt.

    When I type in MEPD i get Sim, network, network subset, service provider corporate all saying disabled. Someone said this means it is unblocked but i cant make calls, yet my internet and bbm work (havent yet tried texting)

    Please can someone help! Thanks Dave

    The device is unlocked. The information you provided about the screen presented after "mepd" is typed indicates that.

    If you are having an issue with the voice network, try calling the carrier whose SIM you are using and see if they can reprovision the device.

    Your phone is indeed unlocked. What message do you get when try to make a call?

    It just says call failed and when I try and call my phone it says its off, cant send texts either but internet and pin are working. Seems very bizarre. Also I went on envirophone to check how much I could recylce it for and it says the IMEI number blocked still.

    Thanks for your help!

    Sounds like something that needs to be diagnosed. Maybe take it into the carrier or a phone specialist to take a look at it. Any luck so far?

    Did you test it with another SIM card? like a friends SIM...just to see maybe if your SIM needs to be replaced.

    Daniel,

    All of the locks on the phone were already off so trying a different letter combination wasn't needed.

    It looked like a compatibility issue for me. Probably an issue with the SIM card not working with the connectivity of the phone. Although this was back in 2010, so we'll likely never know.
