Check the Sponsors section. Specifically GSMPhoneSource.

It is not expensive to unlock your BB...
several reputable vendors are listed in the FAQ here.
The can unlock the 7xxx and 8xxx series... all.
How do I unlock my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ.com

The unlock database is not available to the public, only carriers and RIM authorized unlockers.

Default Unlock

I called TMO and they unlocked it for me no problem. Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but there it is.

He's looking for the tool/database to unlock Blackberrys in general. Not how to get his device unlocked.

I just found a tool probably can unlock 7 series and other older models and is not available to unlock 8 series.

Enclosed the below picture for reference.

If anyone know this stuff please give me more information.



Thanks

^^that will handle the 7xxx series only on GSM devices.

you will need to look for this device for 8xxx series.

I'm interested to know if it is a database that is used for unlocking BB 83xx series etc, why it takes 2 or 3 weeks to unlock them?

I realise some are quicker but I'm in the UK and seems it takes 2+ weeks for some reason?

Anybody have a clue?

because, doh, you are across the big pond, you know it takes at least that much time for the internet to get over there!

Yes, it is a database. But for some reason, it just is a known thing that devices issued by non-North American carriers take a longer period of time to get the unlock code issued. And I've never seen different.

If a tool and database were that easy to get everyone would have one.
