    You need the MEP or 'unlock code'

    Try CellUnlock.net Wireless-Your #1 Source for Accessories, Parts, Repairs, Service & Unlocking!

    Best unlocking service i've used. Enter the coupon code CB50 for half price.

    Or to get the unlock code, you could just call a few reps till you get someone that wants to help you out so you don't have to pay.

    hi! i have just got my new BB pearl flip and i can tell you that is a wonderful device, but i wanted to ask, is it normal that my battery lasts only about a day and a half? i check mail about every two hours, use messenger but not for long, and web browser for about an hour or so, but still i think it should last longer, since it was supossed to last about 14 days, someone has the same problem?

    My Flip's battery only needs charging every 3 or 4 days and i'm constantly using it. Do you leave your wifi or bluetooth on all the time?? I accidently left wifi on one night and my battery drained overnight which wasn't good because I use it as my alarm in the mornings :P

    14 days between charges? ROFLMAO Thanks, I needed a good laugh!

    A day and a half between charges is normal. A lot of people here top off their phone every night. When I'm at home on UMA, I can go a couple days between charges. Signal strength is the big determining factor. Well, that and YouTube playback. I could fry eggs on my battery cover when I'm streaming YouTube videos.

    See my sig for a long list of 8220 battery life tips.
