Question about RIM BlackBerry 7290

2 Answers

I bought an unlocked blackberry 7230 PDA and I am trying to get it to work. My current cell phone gets a great signal. I got the unlocked phone and put in the Tmobile sim card and everything loads onto the screen but there is no signal at all to make calls and it says there is no network. I don't get it. I plan on loading internet on it but not until I can at least make basic telephone calls! Help?

    Thanks. It keeps saying searching for radio and it times out every time. The network doesn't get detected.

Go to Options/Advanced Options/SMS card. Type MEPD, This should bring up a page of statuses. If Network says anything other than Disabled, you BB is still locked


just as a side note you won't see it when you type in mepd, i don't have my bb pearl handy but i believe you have to double tap the keyboard to get the p tho your phone may have the full keyboard

Looks like your phone still locked for some particular network carrier and you need to unlock it before you can use your current sim card on that phone. To unlock blackberry 7230 network you will need a blackberry unlock code and you can purchase it at third party sites on internet.

I have a blackberry 7230 that is locked...... I'm trying to get my hone unlocked so i can make regular phone calls vs. only emergency calls only


the phone probably has a password on it if you bought it on ebay then email the persson who sold it to you. If you have not got the email then try wiping the data base (I was thinking by errors in something else...or....a magnet?) if you cant do any of them then your a bit stuffed.
