Default BlackBerry Unlocking Software.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
We are changing service provider and need to manually unlock about 90 BB 8707G units.

Anyone make any recommendation on what software would be good to use to do this?

Any experience of this and thoughts on best way to manage it?

Any help gratefully appreciated.

Thanks

www.gsmphonesource.com or HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World&rsquo;s Cellular Repair Center .

I would go through one of them to unlock your devices.

I assume you are on o2 UK... If the devices are more than a year old (which I assume many would be) o2 will often provide the codes free. Or at least for a minimal unlock fee (they often threaten me it will cost a tenner, but they never have invoiced me).

If the carrier won't supply the codes, contact HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World&rsquo;s Cellular Repair Center

Ditto, confirmation on that.

There is no software that you want to use in a corporate environment.

Negotiate a bulk unlock fee with Horizon... my suggestion.

If you're changing service provider and you've come to the end of your contract, then you might want to ask the original provider for the unlock codes, they'll usually provide them for free at the end of your contract.

All,
Many thanks for your replies but the directive that I have is to do this task in house so I am really looking for some opinion on any software that anyone has used historically to perform the unlocking process.

I have researched online but would like some suggestions really of tried and tested software if anyone is able to help me?

Many thanks once again for all your replies they are noted.

You can't do this solely in-house.
There is no software you can legally obtain to unlock a BlackBerry device.

Then you know your answer, both posted above and found in your research.

There is nothing left to discuss on this.
