Just doing hardreset in your phone to wipe out that old password. But I doubt you can use your sim card in that phone since most of blackberry phone still locked with their original sim card provider. To unlock blackberry 7290 network you will be need a blackberry unlock code and you can purchase that code at third party sites on internet.

You will not be able to use without the password, unless you reset it completely - or block the paswsword and have to unblock it.

For this there will probably be a charge and you will need to provide the unique IMEI no as well as other details pertaining to that model.

Haven't used my rim in ages, so forgotten the passcode to get into the phone. Is there anyway of unlocking/reseting it at all?


Maybe you can unlock your phone using blackberry 7290 unlock code, that code can be obtained from network provider or buy from blackberry unlock code seller on internet. Other way, you can bring your cellphone to mobile repair shop to get hard unlocked using cable unlock.

My sim card invalid


The reason that it's showing that your sim card is invalid is because either the sim card has been deactivated already by your service provider, or the most likely cause is that your RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100 is locked to another service provider. The only bypass for this would be to unlock your RIM Blackberry, or to subscribe to the service provider the phone is locked with.

The phone is locked to tmoble and i have an at&t sim card. how do i unlock the phone?


If it is a network lock you need to contact you're service provider for the unlock code.
If it is a key pad lock kindly enter wrong password for 10 time's you're handheld will get wiped. Then it will ask for the reset password enter the new password and remember that. (No data will be available when your Handheld is wiped)

I bought a blackberry 7250 off ebay and im not on my fathers account to switch my phone at the store so i was given a code but i cannot type anything in the phone until I can get it unlocked. Is there...


Sometimes sellers lock the phone with a password. You can try contacting the seller for the password, they will usually give you the password without hesitation (basically it's their shipment delivery confirmation). Try a default one of: wireless1

Unlock code


No one can give you free unlock code. because each blackberry have different unlock code. As far as i know unlocking by codes is the simple and safe way.You will need the unique MEP Code for your Blackberry and to get it you can use a website with service for Blackberry unlocking .so you can use a website to Unlock your Blackberry PEARL online instantly - OR local mobile shop .they are mostly using cables to unlock it and the price is higher then on unlocking websites but the result is the same: SIM free Blackberry.

Blackberry 7290 free unlock codes calculator


It is unlikely you will find one, Having dealt with RIM it is my understanding that the unlock is not generated from the iemi but is hard wired in to the unit when built, the only way to unlock is to contact your current provider and pay for the code, given to them by rim
