    You can call Sprint and tell them that you are traveling overseas in a couple of weeks and you need the unlock code for your BB.

    Or you can go to cellunlock.com and pay to get your unlock code from them.

    Just to be clear: you cannot use the 8830WE in America. You can only use it overseas as the GMRS has the World bands, not the U.S. bands.

    So if you are planning on using the GMRS in America... forget it.

    I just recently got a BlackBerry 8830 from a friend. He was with Sprint in America, and now I'm in Canada. I got the MSL code and the ESN number but don't know where to go from here. Any help is appreciated, or even if you could suggest a direction for me, that would be great.

    friend is going overseas. we were hoping to unlock it before she left with an ATT sim chip but was not successful. does the MEPD instructions, only work when you have a chip from overseas?

    Here's what I see: after i press mepd in my 8830 blackberry sprint and yes i have an airtel sim card duly inserted from india:
    ID: #
    SIM = Disabled
    Network = Disabled
    Network Subset = Disabled
    Service Provider = Disabled
    Corporate = Disabled

    Which means that my phone is not locked ( as per some post which i have just read in this site only) - but then it is not working in canada.

    What do i do???

    As carrierunlock noted, and as I posted in your other thread before seeing this one, you cannot use an 8830 on North American GSM frequencies, unlocked or not. The GSM radio in an 8830 is not compatible with North American GSM frequencies and cannot be made compatible.
