    You need a Blackberry Plan from Telenor otherwise you wont get it to work.

    I have a Plan from Telenor and when I did the host / routing I got the settings sent to my phone automatically.

    3 (tre) also has blackberry plans.

    Can someone help me? My code was successfully entered, I am set to GSM networks. Verizon number still shows up on call dialog. Number from sim card shows up in options. Can send/receive texts. Can see calls being sent/received but cannot hear/talk. Any ideas? Will notify it is using t-mobile sometimes, but for the most part I get a constant UMA or SOS

    Ok so i have an unlocked storm running on AT&T everything works fine got all my service books loaded and the whole process was done without breaking a sweat.

    My question is, when Verizon officially releases the next OS update (March 31st?), what will i have to do first? The steps on this sticky or download and install the OS to my PC first?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi guys,
    I don't live in the US, but I bought 2 blackberry storms for myself and my wife and had it shipped to me. I am trying to unlock the GSM part or the phones.. Can anybody help me by telling me the best approach I can take into unlocking them? I've read several ways, but they don't seem to apply to me. Would global support be the best option?
    Thanks for any help offered.

    Bwahahahaaa.... Unlocked it on my first try.

    Called CS and tried with the normal rep, then she said she'll transfer me to tech support because they would be able to unlock... So at this point I was like 'ah what the ****, I'm just along for the ride until I have to start actually giving direction...'

    Well tech support says it's not possible to use another companies SIM card in my phone, I have to use Vodafone... lol I told her that's not true and that my buddy has a storm on verizon and had it done, and she said, that's not possible... I said it's true. Then she insisted he didn't have Verizon then. So I asked her, is the Storm proprietary to Verizon in the Us, she said yes... I said, okay so then how does he not have Verizon then, how can you sit there and tell me that. She was silent lol... I said please transfer me to Global Support or whatever the **** it's called, and she said well can I help you first and I said no please just transfer me..... and she was like well can I ask you a question first and I'm like nope, just transfer me lol.... So then I got through and the lady walked me through the unlock sequence and and I entered the code and BAM! Reboot itself and voila.


    Quite fun, and a piece of cake. COOL.

    I don't have a SIM card from another carrier, and I unlocked my Storm for no other reason than to unlock it. How do I know that it's officially unlocked? I entered in the 16 digit number VZW game me and it said code accepted and that was it.

    That's what I did... And if it says code accepted, it works. My sister has ATT and I stuck the SIM in my phone and voila, registered with ATT and had all her numbers in it lol... kinda cool

    OK, great! I really just wanted to make sure I did it right. I'm now going to seek out my friends that aren't on Verizon and try one of their SIM cards. The problem is, most everyone I know is already on Verizon.

    This may be a silly question but if you have Verizon and you unlock it then you put in an AT&T SIM card and have the network type set to auto would it work on both Verizon and AT&T's network or would you be forced to choose which you wanted to use.

    Well, you do have to select which network you would like the phone to operate off of, 1XEV, GSM, or UTMS.

    I called VZW and told them I needed the unlock code and the 1st rep gave me the runaround, they will try that, but dont take NO for answer. She transferred me to a rep with global support and that person didnt argue with me at all and was more than glad to cough up the code. I think it matters about how long you have been a customer. I have been with Verizon for 5 yrs without interruption.

    Hello,
    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.

    I have read a lot on this forum and simply just can't spend more than 15-20 minutes a day searching for an answer. I am sure it has been beaten to death but here I go..Why unlock the Storm? If you never plan on traveling outside the USA, and that seems to be what people are saying to get an unlock code, then what advantages are there to unlocking the Storm. What does unlocking it do anyway? I went to Mexico this Jan. and my phone worked fine, was expensive as heck but it worked very well.
