Exclamation Storm 9530 Code Error

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all , I have a VZW Storm brand new with a pre-installed SIM , Got the unlock code from Veriszon Global Support with no problem but when I entered the code the device gave me a "Code Error, Please Wait" message . I then verified the code both with Verizon and a local unlock provider and determined that the code mathches the ESN/MEID of the Storm I have. I then proceeded to wipe the phone and reinstalled the OS but the error persists. I also noticed that the the code entry tries do not count down - it's always 10 available. Verisaon also assured me the the phone has a "good" ESN. Any ideas? Please help.

if your count is NOT counting down and you are entering the correct code it means your phone is already unlocked. if it IS counting down, you have the wrong code and your phone IS locked.

BB Storm is still locked - MEPD results Network "Active"; if unlock it should show "Disabled", besides I inserted an AT&T SIM and the phone did not recognize it.

What code did they give you MEP or MEP2 ?
Enter the code without simcard
