It's a clear and fully detailed guide on how to unlock a BlackBerry 8830:

1. Insert any sim card
2. Turn off all of the wireless connections
3. Go to Options
4. Select Advanced Options
5. Select SIM Card
6. Hit menu select show keyboard (if your BlackBerry have touchscreen)
7. Type MEPD ( you will not be able to see what you are typing )
8. Type MEP2 ( you will not be able to see what you are typing )
9. Now the phone will prompt you to enter network mep code
10. if you not already have the code, then i suggest BlackBerryMEP.COM to get it from .
11. Enter the code ( you should see "code accepted" )
12. Restart your BlackBerry .

All done.

I've read that Telus in Canada will not allow other cell phones not purchased from them to be used on their network. Your phone may actually be unlocked and ready to work on their network, but they may not be willing to add it to their records as a viable ESN # to activate. You can call the experts at which is what I plan to do when I buy my new phone soon. I suggest visiting their website and look for their unlocking or reprogramming services. Their phone # to call to check is 1-800-891-0625 or (801) 415-5176. I plan to go into a local phone reprogramming/unlocking store suggested by their website.

Telus Blackberry 8830 World Edition with Rogers SIM?

Unfortunately, you can't use the current Storm model on Rogers. The Telus network is CDMA (Rogers is GSM), which means Telus' wireless products do not use SIM cards :-(
If it's any consolation, there is supposed to be a Blackberry Storm released soon that will use SIM cards and could be used on Rogers.
