How-To Guide: Unlocking BlackBerry including Curve 8520 8900 and Bold 9000 9700

Is my phone supported?

We do support absolutely all BlackBerry phones from all networks. Unlocking BlackBerry service provides you with your unique Network Unlock Code (MEP2) and Service Provider Unlock Code (MEP4). The unlock codes allows you to disable Invalid SIM Card and Enter Network MEP code problems.

You might be unable to unlock your phone in a case somebody else already typed too many wrong codes to your BlackBerry phone. Please see Code Entry Instructions for your phone bellow and follow the instructions until the phone asks for the unlock code. When it says Enter Network MEP code (0 left) then it's impossible to type the unlock code. You will able to unlock your phone only if it says 1 or more attempts left!

Get IMEI and MEP

Most simple way to read IMEI and MEP is via USB. Power your phone on, connect it to your PC. Download and run MEP Reader software and hit Read IMEI and MEP button. It will show your phone unique IMEI and MEP.

In case you do not have USB cable, you are using Mac computer or USB reading does not work you can read IMEI and MEP without USB.
