Your BB 8830 from Sprint cannot be unlocked for use in the US., but is already unlocked to be used oversees.
Check with Sprint before you hit the road just in case.

You cannot unlock a Sprint device to be used with a GSM network. Sprint/Verizon/Alltel operates on CDMA. If you have an International SIM card that came with the Sprint phone then you can use it on a per-minute basis sort of like a prepaid phone. You would need to get an AT&T/Vodafone/Rogers/T-Mobile Blackberry World Edition GSM device to use in Africa. Just make sure that you are on the 900/1800MHz frequency for GSM Networks.

you can unlock your phone through codes. you can get the codes either from your service provider if your phone is within 6 months. or you should buy the codes to unlock your phone. i think there are no free services to unlock any blackberry mobile. you can get the codes either from your service provider or from the third party provider. i bought one code from here SuperUnlockCodes to unlock my phone.

I have a new bb 8830 world edition phone on a Vodafone GSM network. I have requested for the bb service to be activated. Which the service provder has. Unfortunately, the settings are not received by my BB...


Looks like you just change your original sim card with other network sim card. You must unlock your blackberry first before you can using other network in your phone. What you need is blackberry 8830 unlock code from your original phone network sim card. You can get blackberry unlock code from network provider or buy from third party sites which have lower cost rather than network provider.

I would like to have unlock code for Blackberry World Edition 8830?


Depends who you are with.
If you're with Verizon, you have to call Verizon to get it unlocked. Just call Verizon International Technical Support at cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif800-711-8300cb_transparent_r.gif.
Customer service will give you the 8 digit code, hang up and follow this procedure:
  • Settings Menu - Options
  • Selected Advanced Options - SIM Card
  • Type MEPD on the keyboard
  • Type MEP, then the ALT button, then 2
  • A prompt comes up "Enter Network MEP Code". Type in the unlock code, then pressed the track wheel.
  • Phone is now unlocked.

Sprint has the 8830 only in black and it is already unlocked by the carrier when it ships.
Also know you can't use the GSM portion of an 8830 in the US or Canada or Mexico. The reason is because the US/CA and Mexico use different bands than the radio provides. The US uses 850 and 1900 MHz. The rest of the world uses 900 and 1800 MHz Bands. Since your phone only has the latter, it has no capability to work in North America.

Or, you can go here and pay for a code:

Hi

You need to call your previous phone provider ans request for a SIM Subsidy Unlock Code. They can send it to you via email and provide you instructions as well. It will not take more than 48 hours to get it.

Hope this helps
