RIM BlackBerry 7290 network problem

Hi Master - I have problem to operate my Blackberry 7290. I buy this PDA in USA under cingular term (sim card i use before in this PDA is from cingular) and when i move to asia (Indonesia), i want to use different sim card (local indonesia sim card) but there is no network and in my blackberry shown invalid simcard. I bring my blackberry to local provider (which i buy the sim card) but they can not solve this problem, still no network and still invalid sim card. I really need help to solve this problem (connect to local network provider and get the local simcard working properly). Thanks a lot Jame Depth

It's happened since your phone still locked for cingular network only. If you want to change your original blackberry sim card with indonesia sim card you must unlock your phone network. To unlock blackberry 7290 network you will be need a blackberry unlock code. This code can be obtained from cingular or purchase at third party sites for save more cost.

This seems to be the multimillion dollar question for Blackberrys and here is how this works.
There is no "magical"code for all BB's
Each Blackberry is item specific based on your IMEI which is located on the inside of your battery compartment.
Your best bet is to go to eBay or similiar and find your blackberry and look for the cheapest unlocking program. AT that point you will be able open your Blackberry.

Unlocking is most probably the solution and 7290s can definitely be unlocked. You just eneter a software code but usually have to purcahse it. The locks are device (IMEI) specific.

You would need to unlock your Blackberry. You can check out sites to unlock devices and I believe BB7290 is one of the devices that can be unlocked. Make sure have IMEI number handy to unlock the device.

To make and receive calls the procedure is same in Blackberry,

How to unlock black berry 7290


The first thing you can try is to wipe the applications and operating system from the device. This will result in lost information, but at this point you won't be able to get any data from it anyway because it isn't turning on. You can follow the steps in the links below. This requires you to wipe the applications, then release the operating system back on to the device:

If that first link doesn't work, try this one:

http://blackberryfaq.com/index.php/What_to_do_next_if_Jl_Cmder_will_not_connect_and_wipe

Once you get that wiped then you can upgrade the operating system on the device:

It is unlikely you will find one, Having dealt with RIM it is my understanding that the unlock is not generated from the iemi but is hard wired in to the unit when built, the only way to unlock is to contact your current provider and pay for the code, given to them by rim

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.
