Unlock code for blackberry 8310

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Option # 1: The Phone Unlockers
These guys can unlock pretty much most BlackBerry phone/network combination.
In order to unlock the Blackberry phone, you first choose the make and model from their list along with the IMEI number and the network to which your Blackberry phone is locked to. To find out the IMEI number, dial *#06# on your phone’s keypad. They also allow for international unlocking where the unlocking is not limited to just United States.
You then choose the payment option. They price very aggressively and charge less that $30 for unlock services. They accept most credit card and debit cards like most of the unlock services, but the best part I found was the ability to pay by PayPal. PayPal gives me a secure payment option without revealing my credit card number to someone else and also gives me the fraud protection. So, props to these guys for ability to take PayPal payment.
The best part, they email you the unlock code in under 3 minutes and they give a 100% guarantee that their unlock code would work for your BlackBerry! Sounds like a good deal to me. The email will also contain step-by-step instructions telling you exactly how to enter the unlock code making your life as easy as possible. You can visit the Phone Unlockers here.
422851204_680fbd2bc2_m.jpgOption # 2: 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 # 3: 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 # 4: 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 at least 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 at least 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

How do I forward call on my blackberry?


Open BlackBerry Call Forwarding Options
To access your BlackBerry call forwarding options screen, click the green Send key and then open the menu options by clicking the BlackBerry Menu key. Scroll down and select Options.
You'll then be presented with a list of your BlackBerry's Phone Options, which include Call Forwarding. Click on this option and wait a few seconds for the call forwarding screen to populate.
Enter a New BlackBerry Call Forwarding Phone Number
Before you can forward incoming calls via BlackBerry, you first need to enter the number you want calls to be forwarded to.
On the main Call Forwarding options screen, click your BlackBerry Menu key and choose New Number. A dialogue box will then appear asking for the number to which your calls will be forwarded. Type in the 10 digits and click the trackball to save the number.
If you mistyped the new call forwarding number and you need to correct it you can click the BlackBerry Menu key on the main call forwarding screen, choose Edit Number, scroll to the number you wish to modify, click the trackball again and choose Edit from the available options. From there, you can make your desired corrections. To save the changes, simply click the trackball one more time. You'll then be returned to the Edit Forwarding Numbers screen. You can reach the main Call Forwarding option screen by clicking the BlackBerry Escape key once.
Enable BlackBerry Call Forwarding, Tweak Settings
On the main BlackBerry Call Forwarding screen, you have two options for call forwarding: 1) Forward All CallsForward Unanswered Calls. Below the latter option, you have three more choices: A) If Busy; B) If No Reply; and C) If Not Reachable.
By default, your device is set to Forward Unanswered Calls to your carrier's voice mail box in all instances.
BlackBerry Forward Unanswered Call Options
Forwarding every call that comes in to your device is simple; you just fill in the circle next to Forward All Calls and then specify the number to which you wish to direct calls from the corresponding drop-down menu. To save any changes you make, click the BlackBerry Escape key and confirm the changes when prompted.
Forwarding calls in specific situations is a bit different, but it's no more difficult. The first thing you want to do is ensure that the circle next to Forward Unanswered Calls is filled in. (Again, this circle will be filled by default unless you modified your settings.)
To forward only the calls that come in while you're already on the line, click on the If Busy option to open the drop-down menu and then choose the number to which you want to forward your BlackBerry calls. If that's the only call forwarding option you wish to modify, click the BlackBerry Escape key and confirm the change when prompted.
If you want to forward calls that come in while you're, say, in another room and away from the phone, change the number associated with the If No Reply option and save your changes.
If you want to receive calls when your BlackBerry is turned off or you're otherwise unreachable, modify the number settings next to the If Not Reachable option and again save your changes.
When BlackBerry call forwarding is enabled, you'll see a small icon, which looks very much like the missed call icon, appear on your BlackBerry home screen.
Finally, if you wish to return to your device's default settings, simply fill in the circle next to the Forward Unanswered Calls option and set the number for all three options (If Busy, If No Reply and If Not Reachable) to your wireless carrier's voice mail digits.

Blackberry Pearl 8100- Contact picture/name does not show when certain contacts call.


You might try performing a backup in the Desktop Manager, then performing a device wipe. You can wipe the device by going to Options > Security Options > General Settings. Press the menu key, then select Wipe Handheld.

After the device is wiped, then use the BlackBerry Desktop Manager to restore the data back to the BlackBerry. Then test it out and have someone contact you.

I can't dial out.


The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.



Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.

1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click New.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.
6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.
To call your voice mail access number, hold 1.
To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key.
