Data Connection Refused means there is no connection to the RIM data servers. This requires a specific Blackberry data plan. Contact AT&T to have this plan added to your account.

They were wrong. You can never lock your device again, no matter what you do.

Default Blackberry 7100g question

I have a 7100g and it is currently locked under AT&T. I called AT&T to obtain the unlock code to transfer to TMobile. I was told that they could not give me that number and referred me to Research In Motion. I contacted Rim and was told that I could only get the code from the service provider. Is there any other ways to unlock the phone or to get the code?

Question How do you know if the code is unlocked?

I attempted to unlock my 7100g bb, however I am not sure that it has worked.

I believed that it may of worked, because it is reading: No Valid Sim when I go under Sim Card, it use to have a ID# and the phone # there. I am no specialist in this area.

Can you confirm if I have successfully unlocked the phone?

Thanks

Question Trapped!

It appears that I failed to unlocked the code...still active on the network. However I have disabled the sim card ID# & telephone #, do I repeat the same steps over again to disable the network? Alhough, it's reading no sim card info and cell #, is there a way to end this nighmare?

Thanks for your responses, they have been very helpful.
