    I got this phone for free from a friend, brand new never used TELUS 9530. My BELL pearl finally gave out so I purchased and used an unlock code and installed it just fine. It reads my SIM card, but after going through network settings and selecting GSM 2G/3G, it can only provide SOS service and it says 'activation required' at the top of the screen. Selecting automatic doesn't do me any better.
    I have reset multiple times, done everything i could. dialing ##000000 tells me it is the wrong password. Any advice would be awesome because right now I don't have a phone

    Please note that activation required message does not affect your ability to get phone service. This message occurs on Blackberrys that have both GSM and CDMA capabilities. Your phone is basically telling you to activate your phone on the CDMA network that the phone was originally locked to. Since you unlocked the phone and most likely want to use it on another carrier you probably want to get rid on this message. Please follow the instructions below:

    Verizon (9630, etc): Enter ##000000 into your phone and press Send. The "CDMA Service Edit Screen" will pop up. Edit the "Mobile Directory Number" to reflect your mobile phone number (include the full country code with the phone number). For example: Change 00000003256 to 16135556666. Click the menu button and select save.

    Carrier Unlock is correct. Bell/Telus/Sprint 9530, 9550, 9650, 9630's need a msl code/spc code.
