Default Got my 7290 RIM:SIM Card: No Valid SIM Card

Please Login to Remove!

alright, this is what i got, i put in MPED or whatever it is and it says:

Personalization:
SIM----------Disabled
Network-------------Active
Network Subset-----------Disabled
Service Provider---------Disabled
Corporate-----------------Disabled


does this mean its locked or unlocked? it has cingular on the bottom of the keyboard....i dont really have 50$ to unlock it, i only paid 40 for the thing...

any hacks or some crap? anywhere thats not 50$ haha...

i know there has to be a way around this, im trying to use a unicel SIM and my brothers worked in a motorola slvr from an old cingular user...so idk...some help? could i call unicel and they do it for free?

Network Active means it is locked.

There are no hacks or crap for the BlackBerry. Sorry. It's not a Moto.

The only one who will unlock it for free is the original carrier.

Contact one of the commercial unlockers. GSMPhoneSource.com is one.

I'd ask around; Google the seller's name.
