"blackberry" is often the code. However, I believe the user locked it up and has their own code to lock/unlock.

get in touch with the seller... ask them for the code... :)

Locked??


You will probably have to have your service provider help you with this ... Best thing to do after you get in is do a hard reset.

Locked??


You need the password to unlock it. If you bought it on ebay you should contact the seller.

Forgot password phone locked.


The unit shouldn't have locked-up...just reset itself. It would have wiped the data and settings, rebooted and started out as brand-new.

If it has truly locked-up, try removing the battery and re-inserting it. The unit should then boot up. If it doesn't, I would suggest calling your service provider for assistance.

Cheers!

Go to BlackBerryMEP.COM and buy an unlock code specified to your BlackBerry, they will send you the unlock code along with a fully detailed guide on how to input the code using your BlackBerry's keypad .

Bluetooth (service not supported) HELP!


your blackberry might need an upgrade in software you bought on ebay

take it to your local retail outlet or phone provider and have them do an upgrade in the system they have

#2 i would never buy these kinda phones from ebay one of 2 things they could be stolen or just be a piece of ........
unlocked phones are usually clones once you put your service on it they have the code to copy your info and make your phone account become out of wack with out ragious charges
they got you good
only by these kind of phones from certified dealers they have the quality and guarenteed no cloning

Is it locked to Rogers?


If it is set for one service supplier it should work on that sim - I suspect its locked on another supplier - question the seller on ebay - if he is ingenuine you can always leave bad feedback.

Please rate this assistance - I hope it is useful.

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.

No coverage


The BB is most likely locked or forbidden to work on another network other than the original network it was sold on. You require an unlock code for your specific serial number (or IMEI).
