Question about RIM BlackBerry 7290

Open Question

Firewall enabled on 7290?

Hi,
I bought this older Blackberry (7290)from someone who had TMobile and I'm AT&T.

I had the phone unlocked however the person who unlocked it said bad news, there is a firewall enabled and he couldn't disable it.
Yes, I get the Invalid Sim message but all the other functionality works.
Using the options menu I keep trying to change the Firewall and/or network but it doesn't allow me to.

Am I out of luck or can something be done?

Thank You

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.

Network inactive


It could be that roaming is disabled either on your phone or on your account.

You should contact t-mobile at 1-877-453-1304 and see if roaming is enabled on the phone.

Unlock BlackBerry 7290


Unfortunately, the unlock code for a BB 7290 is unique to each phone. The unlock code is based on the IMEI of your BB. After getting an unlock code then the steps to unlock are:
1. go to options

2 scroll to SIM CARD then press jog dial in once to select it

3. Type MEPD (not case sensitive) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

4. Does it say Network active? if so your phone is locked

5. Press and hold the alt key (half moon looking key on the lower left side)

6. as you are holding the alt key type in MEPE (not case sensitive) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

7. type in the unlock code when prompted

8. After entering the code press the jog dial in

9. Your phone is now unlocked!

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.
