Default MM6 on 3 UK?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay so I know you dont discuss how to unlock on here so Im not going to. The fact is Iv'e already unlocked my Blackberry Pearl 9105 from vodafone.
I want to connect to the 3 network but the phone says Phone not allowed MM6.

May there of been an issue with the unlocking process?
is there anyway to check it is actually unlocked to all networks.

The other thing I really fear is that I bought this phone of gumtree.com and I've searched the internet and im quite scared that MM6 may mean its stolen and been reported lost. The user has recently deleted his account off gumtree and im left with a phone which i cant use and 100 pounds out of pocket

Any advice?

How do I determine if my BlackBerry is "unlocked"? - BlackBerryFAQ

I never heard of ""MM6" but if it's stolen or reported lost you're hosed. Nothing for it but to try to return it to the rightful owner and eat the loss, or sell it for parts.

And we do talk about unlocking - legally.

Some of the links I found on this indicated that while that message might be caused by the device being stolen, it might also be caused by an incompatible SIM card.

Try getting a new SIM card.

Excellent suggestion.

I had this problem when trying to use an unlocked Rogers 8300 on T-Mobile before TMO actually released this model (they were dead last to get the Curve). After jumping through hoops to try and get all services running I found my old SIM card wasn't usable in the Curve. I went to T-Mobile and they set up a new SIM card for me. Free, and it took about 5 minutes in the store. Boom. Everything suddenly worked perfectly.
