Hello.
I think I see your problem.
The 'mepd' must be uppercase. Hold the shift key down while typing in the MEPD.
Once you get into the area that shows what limitations are active or disabled, then you must use the Alt. Option key on the fare left third row of keys down. Holding the Alt. Options key, type MEP then release the Alt. Option key and press 2.
You should now be prompted to enter the unlock code. If not, start from where you had the last correct results. Also, If it will not work, back all the way out to the memo icon and try the keys you need to type to insure all of the keys are working and you are not fighting a temperamental key switch.
Good luck in your quest.
If you still need more help, just ask.

    VERY IMPORTANT:

    Do not have a SIM card installed and make sure the radio portion of the BlackBerry is off.

    You need to go into options, then into the advanced options subheading, then into the SIM card sub-directory.

    This is where you type the uppercase M E P D.

    What you should see then is a listing of what is active and what is disabled. This is where you press the Alt options key while typing M E P

    Release the Alt options key and press the 2 key.

    Then you should be prompted to enter your unlock code. BE CAREFUL!!! enter the code correctly, you only get ten tries before the phone locks you out.

    Hope this clears thing up for you.

Unfortunately, the unlock code for a BB 7290 is unique to each phone. The unlock code is based on the IMEI of your BB. After getting an unlock code then the steps to unlock are:
1. go to options

2 scroll to SIM CARD then press jog dial in once to select it

3. Type MEPD (not case sensitive) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

4. Does it say Network active? if so your phone is locked

5. Press and hold the alt key (half moon looking key on the lower left side)

6. as you are holding the alt key type in MEPE (not case sensitive) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

7. type in the unlock code when prompted
