Default BSAK Problem (?) - Wiping OS 8520 Curve (different carrier)

Please Login to Remove!

HI,
Im trying to change the OS of my bb curve 8520 and I already saw tons of tutorials and even searched the forum, did same operations but always installs me the OS of the carrier original.

I tried from fresh by installing DM in a different pc and then the OS of the carrier that I pretend, then I disconnected the PC from internet and without update neither opening DM I just wiped the BB in BBSAK then I try "Load OS" in BBSAK but always tells me that didnt found OS installed in the pc..

so I try using the Loader.exe from Common Files\Research In Motion\Loader (previously deleting the vendor.xml)

But ends installing the OS with vodafone screen and asks me MEP code for unlock card

What can I be doing wrong ? Theres a way to correct BBSAK Load OS ? (tried restart PC, reinstall BBSAK, and be sure that nothing of DM is opened)

you cant change the Voda screen by installing an OS even from a different carrier

thanks for your answer, but my question was about the system keep being with the other carrier instead of the new OS I put, why it keeps happening ?

Carriers lock the cell phones and to use them on a different carrier you need to get the unlock codes either from the carrier or by purchasing the codes. If you decide to go that route then you need to follow all the requirements when entering the numbers.

This is not specific to Blackberry phones, all have locks.
Vodafone offers a method to do this on their web site.
