1) Need a SIM card inserted into the phone
2) Click on manage connections, select turn all connections off
3) Go to Settings Menu, Options, Advanced Options and then SIM Card.
4) Hit the menu button and select show keyboard
5) Type in MEPD using the keyboard (nothing will show on screen)
0) You will see the Personalization screen, that show SIM> Disabled, Network> Active, Network Subset> Disabled
6) Type in MEP2 (Nothing will show on screen - use "Alt" to show numbers.) another screen pops up for the code.
7) Now it will say enter network mep code Enter the code that we send you, remember you ONLY have 10 chances to get it right
8) Press the enter key
9) A message will appear saying code accepted
00) On Personalization screen you will see the Network> Inactive.
10) Turn device off, insert SIM of your choice if have not done so already
11) Turn the phone back on
12) Go to Options, then Mobile Network, on the third row switch it to GSM/UMTS and you're done.

Issues:
1) If you have issues with the phone not recognizing the network, make sure the radio is on by making sure it is not low on power.
2) Sometimes the phone requires you to do "m e p p d" instead of "m e p d" and if that occurs, you will need to do "m e p p 2" instead of "m e p 2"
3) If you have issues with the network not working after you have finished and the phone isn't low on power, switch from Global to GSM to Verizon a few times (keep on doing) and after 3 times of the process completed, leave it on GSM. Should work now.

Removing "Activation Required" on the screen:
1) On the main screen of the phone, press ##000000
2) For the Mobile Directory Number, put in your phone number in there.
3) After you have done that, press the menu button to save the options and the phone will automatically restart

I'm trying to unlock my BB storm 9530,after I type "MEPPD" I enter "MEP2" or "MEPP2" but still I dont get any window to put the unlock code in,any ideas ?!


Before you start, you MUST have an Unauthorized Sim Card inserted. An unauthorized Sim Card is a Sim Card that is NOT belong to the provider of the phone. Example: If you have a Verizon phone, you need to insert a T-Mobile Sim Card inside the phone before turn it on. 1. Power on the phone.
2. Phone will said "MEP check failed. Do you want to enter MEP unlock code". Select Yes.
3. "Enter Network MEP code (# left)". Enter the unlock code.
4. Press Enter, you should see “Code Accepted”
5. You need to check Network Connection is set on GSM/UMTS. Menu>Manage Connection>Mobile Network Options and make sure it GSM/UMTS.
6. Once GSM/UMTS is selected. You can now ready to make phone call.
Notice: If the network not working after your phone is fully charged and unlocking process “Code Accepted”. You must change from Verizon CDMA network to GSM Global Network a few times, after change from Verizon CDMA to GSM Global 3 times is completed, leaves it on GSM Global Network. Now it should work. (Verizon 8830 World Edition DOES NOT work in USA)
