Check that the select network option is set on automatic, the phone looks like a locked one by the way.

It must be blocked or out of region mobile. some technician have the solution to open code and change the region of set, but the recommended option is that you must return it back because it will gives problems continuously after code open.

How to unlock my Blackberry 8100 from Tmobile to use it with ATT


Well if you are tied to a particular network all you have to do is call up the customer help line of the service provider and ask them for the unlocking code, which will be provided to you for a nominal amount of money.
You can also get the unlock code through online..........i will suggest the website http://www.blackberryunlockingcodes.com which is doing good service .....you can approach this website.

Go to Options/Advanced Options/SMS card. Type MEPD, This should bring up a page of statuses. If Network says anything other than Disabled, you BB is still locked

Unlock


if you can get the multiloader you can unlock it yourself. But it does take a little skill.
Or you can go to unlocktotalk.com and they will provide you with an unlock code for a fee.
Good Luck

Unlocked verizon blackberry world phone wont work with t-mobile


i believe i had had the same issue.

i unlocked an at&t phone and put in the sim card and it wouldnt work. i called tmobile and the representative told me that they have to register the sim card to their network or something.

so just call tmobile and tell them you got a new phone and want to register it so the sim will work in the unlocked phone.

I bought an unlocked blackberry 7290 RIM, can't get service


I am actually unsure what could have caused this. It might not be unlocked correctly or could have been damaged when the software was modified. But T-Mobile carried the BB7290 so if you can get ahold of the person who unlocked it for you I would ask for a branded T-Mobile phone.

Unlock my blackberry 7290


Like you being with T-mobile, I bought a cingular phone off ebay that wasn't unlock. My sims didn't work either. My network just said call Cingular which is now AT&T and they gave me the MEP code to unlock it. Beware, you need to confirm all of your information from your network before they will help you.

Unlock Blackberry 8100 mobile


contact your service provider if you need to unlock the sim to use it with another carrier....it will take a few days to get the code back if they have tot contact the manufacterer....but you need the 16 diget code......after you get that, go to options, advanced options, sim card, type MEPPD. scroll to sim card, type MEP and pres the ALT key and then the 2 key.

if that doesnt work, instead of typing MEP2, try pressing and holding the ATL key and type MEPPE

if this works, a window will pop up asking for the unlock code....
