    Hi. I found this really effective way of finding your MEP number. It seems confusing but it actually isn't that bad and doesn't require software.

    Your MEP is very useful in finding your MEP2/Unlock Code...

    Step 1.
    - On your BlackBerry, hold ALT and press E-A-C-E (2*92)
    - The Help Me! Menu will open up, this will contain the information you will need to access the MEP number

    Step 2.
    - Go to a calculator which will calculate a "secret pin" that you will need to enter to access a hidden screen
    - I recommend this one
    - Enter the information that the generator asks for (device PIN, uptime, version, etc) all exactly as it is, including parenthesis/brackets
    - You will receive an 8-character PIN code (not your BBM PIN), you must stay on the page you're on

    Step 3.
    - Whilst still in the Help Me! Menu, type that PIN code just as you would text it, it is not case sensitive

    Step 3.
    - If you've entered the PIN correctly, a new screen will appear called the Engineering Screen
    - Scroll down and select OS Engineering Screens
    - Furthermore, select Device Info

    Step 4.
    - This page contains many different numbers and parameters for your phone, you will need to scroll down and find the one labelled MEP

    Step 5.
    - You have found your MEP number!

    M'fraid I can't guarantee the validity of it with the bb10 but I am assuming that it may work.

    It's not possible to read the MEP on a Blackberry 10 device such as the Q5 like that.
