Contact the orginal carrier fro an unlock code. That is the safest. If you are unable to get the code through them there are tons of websites out there that provide unlock codes. most cost $$. Be careful though,. If the wrong code is entered too many times the phone will be permanently locked to the original carrier

My Mobile Network reads SOS

switch off your blackberry, remove the back cover and battery, and remove the sim card. Replace it after about one minute and it should not read SOS anymore.
If it still reads SOS, insert your sim card into another cellphone to see if it also reads SOS in a different phone. If it does, you need to call the company you bought the sim card from.
Eg; if it's an MTN sim card, call MTN; if it's Vodacom, call Vodacom etc.
