    Hey there. i got a bbstorm 2 9550. got an unlock code but heres the thing:

    i went to advanced options after turning off all connections, went into sim and typed mepd, then mep2, but no box pops up for me to input the code. tried mepp2 also, but to no avail.

    Anyone got an answer?

    The MEPD then MEPD2 is correct. Did you get anything when typing MEPD? The letters have to be caps.

    Yeah put the storm on its side and use the QWERTY keyboard.
    Makes it easier.

    Here's a vid to show you how....

    In my unlocked Storm 9550, it says disabled for all except for Network, where it says "inactive". Any ideas why? (In earlier unlocked BBs, I seem to remember it just said "Disabled" for all).

    According to this thread, my Blackberry 9550 is already unlocked, but it will not recognize the SIM card I'm using. I am currently in Kuwait and trying to use a Zain card. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You need to make sure you have your network set to GSM.
    mobile network options/ network technology/ set to GSM.

    Checked it just to be sure, but the settings are correct. It recognizes an available network (not the one from the SIM), but no matter what I do, it says "insert sim card".

    Are you sure it's unlocked?

    According to the info in this thread, yes. I input the MEPD text and it opens up the personalization screen, which shows everything as disabled except for the network, which says inactive. Nothing happens when I put in the MEP2 text, so i assume it is just like the info posted earlier in this thread and that means it's unlocked. Is there any other way to verify this?

    Thanks.
