    Ok, I've searched the forums, and I can't seem to find what I need. My apologies in advance if this has been answered -- please don't crucify me!

    Alas, I'm trying to unlock my phone -- my Sprint Rep gave me the unlock code before I left the store.

    However, I'm having issues unlocking it it seems.


    I go under options>advance options>sim card and type in "mepd" it then brings up a menu where everything says "disabled" I can't do anything from there...I can't type in the "MEP2" (I try and nothing happens)...

    What am I doing wrong?

    thanks

    Try this.....

    FIRST Reboot the phone (pull out and replace the battery while the phone is on)

    now follow these instructions

    1. Go to Manage connections --> turn mobile network "ON"
    2. Go to Mobile network options --> switch it to GSM
    3. Go to Options
    4. Select Advanced Options
    5. Select SIM Card
    6. Show keyboard
    7. Enter mepd
    8. Enter mep2
    9. Now it should say enter network mep code
    10.Enter your unlock code
    11. Press enter



    If this doesn't work then follow these instructions:



    1. PUT ANY ACTIVE SIM CARD IN YOUR PHONE (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc)
    2. Turn off all of the wireless connections
    3. Go to Options
    4. Select Advanced Options
    5. Select SIM Card
    6. Hit menu select show keyboard
    7. Enter mepd
    8. Enter mep2
    9. Now it will say enter network mep code
    10.Enter your unlock code
    11. Press enter


    Hopefully this will get you on your way.....

    not working for me...

    At the top, it says: SIM CARD: Security Disabled

    Then when I put in "mepd" it brings up a whole slew of stuff that wasn't there when it was opened up. When I type in "mep2" it does nothing

    argh....

    I had the same problem try doing the following, but before you do them wipe the blackberry, and once you wipe it turn off all network connections and make sure theres no sim card inside it:
    1. Go to settings menu => and then Options
    2. Select Advanced options => and then Sim card
    3. Type MEPD using your Blackberry keyboard (NOTE: You will not see any text appear on the screen while typing MEPD)
    4. Type MEP then [ALT BUTTON] then 2 on your Blackberry keyboard (NOTE: You will not see any text appear on the screen while typing MEPD)
    5. You should be presented with a prompt "Enter Network MEP Code".
    But if that doesn't work put in any kind of sim card into the phone thats what my friend had to do with his Tour, apparently the Tour security is a bit glitchy. GOOD LUCK!

    If it says : SIM CARD: Security Disabled then it is already unlocked. You don't need to do anything else.

    So far every Tour I have received has been unlocked. We'll have to wait and see tomorrow if a new batch is the same way.
