According to the unlock instructions I had to go to Options>Advanced>Sim Card, then type MEPPD and then type Alt-MEPP2 and enter the unlock code.
After I type MEPPD I get a personalization menu, and everything (including "Service Provider" is Disabled). I can't remember what showed there before unlocking, but perhaps this is what artfay was referring to. Now when I type Alt-MEPP2 it didn't ask for an unlock code, so I guess the phone has been unlocked (and this seems one way to check it).
Anybody knows whether I will need to reenter the unlock code if I upgrade the OS or ever wipe the Pearl clean?
