Default Unlocking a 9530 without a SIM, this okay?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I have my friend's 9530 here, and I was going through unlocking it.

I got to the section to select a Sim Card, but the screen showed "No Valid Sim Card" at the top. Regardless, I went and typed MEPD and MEP2 anyways.

Now at this point, I am wondering. Is it okay to input the unlock code without a sim card inserted? (There technically was a sim card inside, it just didn't read it for whatever reason. It is a sim card that is working in my phone.)

I got "Code Accepted" and I get..
Sim = Disabled
Network = Inactive
Network Subset = Disabled
Service Provider = Disabled
Corporate = Disabled

It still doesn't read my Sim Card, but I am unable to bring up the menu to enter an Unlock Code anymore.

Have yet to be able to test it, but is this Blackberry unlocked? Or will testing a new sim only tell?

Thanks in advance!
