I have the unlock code specific to my phone IMEI, but when I follow the instructions for unlocking I do not get the screen that will allow me to enter the code for the phone. Am I missing something or just dumb? Any help would be greatly appreciated!:razz:

You do realize that you will not be able to use the 8830 on US GSM carriers right?

1. Call your carrier.
2. Ask for the MEP code.
3. Give them your IMEI number.
4. To get your IMEI number, type this on your phone, *#06#, and it should pop up.
5. Once you get your MEP code, turn off your wireless radio on your phone.
6. Go to SETTING or OPTIONS.
7. Then go to ADVANCE OPTIONS.
8. Then go to SIM CARD.
9. Type "MEPD" on your phone.
10. You should see "Network as Active"
11. Hold SHIFT + type "MEP2"
12. You should see "Network as Disabled"
13. You are now the proud owner of an unlocked Blackberry

I forgot to mention that the BlackBerry will ask for the left most digits of the code.....Don't listen to it.....It needs the entire unlock code.
