    I have the 7230, it works fine where I am most the time, but when I visit my parents house it drops the signal. I switched the sim to my old phone, and it works fine. Why is it not working in this area when other phones will?

Try to unlcok your phone network first then put your sim card again. To unlock blackberry 7290 network you will be need a blackberry unlock code and you can purchase it at third party sites on internet.

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.

Need unlock blackberry 7290 that operated in Brasil.Estou living in Libya and here was not funciona.No operator Claro Brazil


You'll need to contact the service provider the phone was made to be used with (AT&T, Verizon, whomever). Their name or logo will be somewhere on the phone.

You'll provide to them the IMEI which can be located by removing the battery from the phone. On the back of the phone, there should be a sticker where the battery was. This sticker will contain a number called the IMEI. When you contact the service provider, you'll give them this number and they will give you the unlocking code.

Once the phone is unlocked, you can get a new service provider in Libya and you'll just put their SIM card in the phone and it will work.

Hope this helps :)

I have a blackberry 7290 how do i reset to factory setting


You need to get it unlocked either by doing a search for unlocking blackberry 7290 and paying one of the online services.

Service providers will unlock their phones as well just tell them your traveling abroad and you need to unlock the phone. Otherwise if it is not affiliated with a service provider you will most likely have to pay someone to get you unlock code.

Is it locked to Rogers?


If it is set for one service supplier it should work on that sim - I suspect its locked on another supplier - question the seller on ebay - if he is ingenuine you can always leave bad feedback.

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.
