    I have recently purchased a BB 8830 in the US and came back with it to my country.

    I have tried unlocking it with my SIM card + Unlock code that I purchased over the internet and It does not unlock. From what I have read I must unlock it with a verizon sim card.

    Any one has an Idea how can I unlock it?

    I also tried I-smartphone sim-card extension and it doesn't work...

    I have to make it work

    Thank you very much

    Welcome to Crackberry..
    You need to contact Verizon Tech Support, and explain you bought the Phone in the US, and you are "traveling" out side the US and need the phone unlocked. You should Never have to pay for this. Verizon Technical Support group does and can provide the unlock code. There are other posts about this, just search.

    thanks for your reply

    I forgot to mention that I bought this phone second hand
    I don't have a verizon contract

    Sorry for the misinformation

    They might still help. And you can unlock if ANY sim card is inside.

    If they won't help, I don't know what you do. I've read about unlock services but I don't know if those are for sim cards or to move between carriers.

    Good luck
