Default Blocked BB

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone ,
I need a little help with unblocking a bb ...
my friend gave me a visit from london and he gave me bb9520 he said he bought it from some shop and it's blocked you need only to unblock it in your country ,

so I used the normal and usuall : ordered mep2 code but when I reach this moment to enter it nothing appears and I can't enter it .. there is written there (Network ...... Blocked ) ..

so I want anyone just to tell me is there anyway to unlock this phone ?

thanks

Blocked is completely different from locked.

Typically, only the original carrier that blocked the device can unblock it. You would need to find out why it was blocked and resolve that issue. Reported lost or stolen? Unpaid bill?

I have no Idea what was the reason , as I said just a friend bought it from a shop in UK and it's used and he gave it to me in Poland .. it might be like you said lost , stolen or unpaid bill but the shop sold it as used and it's only not working in UK , this what my friend told me .

Unless you can get the original carrier to unblock it , it may be useless.

Yes , if possible give them a call or look for a contact email on their web site.It may just be an unpaid bill and depending on the amount it may be worth paying. If the cost to unblock is more than a new one then i would dump it.

They didn't answer my mail yet ... and they put on hold while i'm doing international call ! so it's worthless .
I guess I'll send it back to UK so my friend will give it back to the shop, I hope he'll get his money back or another unlocked one .
Thanks tsac for your idea anyway .
