Blackberry - Z10 - Black settings Tab

Asked: May 02 2021 | 8:33 pm EDT 674 Views 22 Answers

Hello all,
I am trying to open the settings tab for my Blackberry Z10 but it's just black and not showing anything. I even waited for 10 mins for my phone to display contents in the settings tab but it's not working. I am not sure wts the issue. Rest all the tabs are working fine?

Is it because the phone is locked with the carrier or should I just install OS again?
If I need to reinstall the OS. Pls, post the link to the OS.

Pls, let me know how to fix this.

Thank you.

Contact Claro. If that fails, you can always try a third party unlocking company - but be careful.

I contacted Claro already. They said pls let us know the contact number associated with this device for us to provide the unlock code.
I told them pls use the IMEI number like other carriers but they denied it.
Can you recommend any third party? I never used any. I was thinking to find a free solution to unlock the device.

The STL100-1 does not support 4G/LTE.

Freedom's only 3G frequency is band 4, and your model only supports 3G bands 1, 2, 5, and 6.

So even if you got it unlocked, it would be useless. It was only meant for Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Spain, Turkey, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and El Salvador.

Do NOT use up that last attempt unless you have a legitimate code to enter, otherwise the phone will be locked forever.

I visit India quite frequently and can use myself or will donate to someone.. that's the reason I don't want to throw this phone just because I can't unlock it. I would appreciate your help. Pls suggest any way to unlock this device. Thank you again.

Many have had issues even with legitimate vendors or even with carriers.... some even had to resort to calling BlackBerry for assistance. But that was way back when they were still in the phone business and devices were under warranty.

Unlock Blackberry - Blackberry Unlock Code - Blackberry Unlocking is on I used years and years ago.

Contact the person you got the phone from and have them unlock it, as they would know to which network it's locked.

Yes, and if they still are or were a customer of Claro then they should be able to contact Claro and get an unlock code.
