Default Blackberry 8830 World Edition Unlock Help

Please Login to Remove!

I need help unlocking this phone. I get to the part where you put in the unlock code, however in the part where it tells you how many tries you have left it says zero. Does that mean you can no longer unlock it or are there ways around it?

I posted earlier about using a blackberry 8830 world edition on at&t in the states and now know I can't due to the frequencies, however I would still like to unlock for other possible use. Thanks for any help.

Yes, the phone is locked forever.

Sorry, you're out of luck. It can no longer be unlocked.

Come to think of it... isn't the Sprint 8830 unlocked already? I seem to remember that it ships unlocked.
