Unlock sprint BB 8830 world edition

I bought BB 8830 world edition phone from Sprint. Sprint markets this phone as an unlocked phone and provides a SIM separately.

My first question: Is this phone really unlocked and can be used with any SIM provided by any service provider in India (CDMA/GSM)?

I want to use it on reliance CDMA network. Reliance website supports this phone. So first, I'll try taking it to a Reliance Web World and try asking them first.

My Second question: If its not unlocked, can somebody help me in unlocking it so that I can use it with Reliance and/or Vodafone?

My Third question: After unlocking the phone is this phone's usage limited to any one of the technologies i.e,. will I be able to use it either with CDMA or GSM or after unlocking it I can use it with any of them at any given point of time?

My Fourth question: After unlocking the phone, I want to use the Blackberry Internet Services... Will this be possible after unlocking the 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:

WANT TO UNLOCK BLACKBERRY


Your BB 8830 from Sprint cannot be unlocked for use in the US.
Check with Sprint before you hit the road just in case. But you can still get it unlocked from here.
