Exclamation Blackberry MEP Fix Tool - Unlocking

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,

I was searching online for ways to unlock the blackberry and I found an application called Sim Unlock Tool - USB Blackberry. Upon opening the exe I got a DOS style prompt with the following info:

RIM 2.5G Wirless Device MEP Fix Tool Version
Copyright 2006 Research in Motion Limited

Connecting to Bootrom:

I did not connect my 7100g simply because I am not sure how legit this program is and I was worried that it may damage the device.

Any ideas? would this program unlock or generate a code for a 7100g?

It does not actually unlock the handheld, but rather it fixes the ability for some handhelds to be unlocked under some circumstances (unlock codes were not working).
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
