Don't worry you can unlock blackberry 7290 with a blackberry unlock code. This code will reset your phone network back to default factory setting so you can use any sim card in your phone. Blackberry unlock code can be purchased at third party sites on internet for 24 hours.

Select "unlock" and type in the password. The device will allow you 10 trials and after that it will delete all old data and allow you to set your own password.

In case you do not want the password, go to options > security > password - press space bar to disable

I bought a blackberry pearl from someone and i tried to put my sim card in it but it rejects it i called the provider of the phone and they wont give it to me is there anyway for me to get te unlock code


In this case you need to contact that particular person from whom you bought the Handheld and ask him to contact the service provider for the Handheld unlock code and they will unlock the Handheld and you can use any Sim card in that particular Handheld.
I hope I was able to you.
Thank you for using Fixya.

First, download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

Once installed, connect your BlackBerry to your computer via the USB sync cable. Open Desktop Manager, and click the Application Loader. On the right, you will see Update your device software. Click the Start Button, and if your BlackBerry is not on the latest Handheld Software, an update will appear. Select the update, and run the install. Be sure to select the option that backs up and restores your data. Once started, do not shut down your computer, or disconnect the USB sync cable as this could damage the device.

Once completed, your BlackBerry will restart and you will have the latest version available. This version has been known to correct various issues.

To change your Default Language:

1. Go to the main applications view.
2. Choose Options (it's the little crescent wrench icon) and select it.
3. Scroll down to Language and click the trackball.
4. Select your preferred Language.
5. Now just click the menu button and select Save.
