SOURCE: hoe to unlock Blackberry pearl 8100

Hi pratik. please follow the recommended steps.

Option # 1: GSM Phone Source These guys provide you with remote unlocking of the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and also the BlackBerry Pearl 8700g.
How it works is pretty simple. You pay for the unlocking service, and when you submit your order, you must include the IMEI number for the Blackberry you are unlocking in the notes section when you are making the Paypal payment. The IMEI Number can be obtained when you enter *#06# from your phone’s keypad, it will display a 15 digit number ( If you have trouble obtaining the IMEI this way you can also find the IMEI number in the Status menu ). Once your order is processed and unlock code is ready, you will be emailed with an unlock code and instructions on how to enter it.
Models supported, including but not limited to are the 8100, Pearl, 8700g, 5xxx Series, 6xxx Series, 7xxx Series.
You have to pay $35 for their service and the turnaround time is usually less than 24 hours. You can visit GSM Phone source here
422851202_762aab9839_m.jpgOption # 2: Unlock to Talk
Unlock to Talk is another good option to unlock your BlackBerry Pearl. They have over 150 satisfied customers with completed orders for unlocking their phones. You can also check the list of their customers with their BlackBerry IMEI numbers and their corresponding Unlock Codes here.
For Unlock to talk service, you end up paying $35.95. Their turnaround time is also around 1 business day or upto 48 hours.
You can visit Unlock to Talk here
Option # 3: T-Mobile or Cingular, your carrier
Yes, you can ask your carrier for an unlock code for your Blackberry and guess what, they do it for it Absolutely FREE. So, what is the catch? The only condition which atleast T-Mobile imposes on its customers before it gives out the unlock codes for the Blackberry Pearl or any other cell phone is that you have to be under the contract for atleast 90 days or 3 months before they can give you the unlock code. So, if you have the patience, I would recommend that you wait for this 3 month time frame before calling up 611 from your T-Mobile phone, talk to customer service and get your unlock codes.
In my search for the Blackberry Unlock codes, I found out that a lot of people mess up before they have no idea how to enter the unlock codes correctly. So, follow this method to enter your Blackberry Unlock code

Look thru the set up menu and see if there is an ambient light setting that adjusts the brightness of the TV based on the light level in the room. If there is then turn it off.

MY SCREEN WENT DIM ANDI FOGET HOW TO BRIGHTEN IT


Laptop. Make sure it is plugged into the mains as the battery saver may have activated. On my HP Laptop, pressing the F3 function key brightens, F2 makes dimmer.

On computer monitors, you need the menu button which will be somewhere at the front of the monitor either on the face or just underneath out of site. Press menu to bring up the options, use another button to scroll to brightness, press another button to select, one of the button you just used to make brighter and then menu to save out.

Screen gets dim at times.


Backlight is going bad.
Either bulb or whole LCD needs replacement.
But, first start with new/good Inverter Board.

It might be that the screen has gone dark due to overheating (was unit in bright sunlight?). If you look carefully, the screen may still be on - but very dim. Go thru the menu until you get to display and try to reset it to a brighter state.
