Hello everyone
I think we all have had these same problems, a question is asked
and many people want to answer, but they either assume that you are
a techie or they are just lazy. Please when giving an anser give a full
discription. this can be said of those asking a question, tell everything!!!!!
I just received a Blackberry 8700c. cingular network.
We give these to service men in combate, so I bought the unlock code
and followed the instructions. "nothing" I did searches incase the instructions
had been wrong of misleading, slightly different wording.
after I tried the the unlock, the cingular and tmobile sim is not reconized
I finally did a wipe of the device, the person who donated it had left the
keyboard locked, but left all her contacts on it blackberry, which I deleted
then wiped the device. I restart the blackberry and still get the notice
insert sim or sim not reconized. Can anyone give me more help then
I have gotten. I have sent an email back to the company I received the\
unlock code from, I double checked the ime code to make sure its the
one I gave them.
If anyone happens to be from the Los Angeles area, southbay
who could help, other wise this forum is very cool
best

Welcome to the forums.

I am not sure of the steps that you've tried already but try taking a look at the FAQ and see if it helps.

How do I unlock my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

And, please, a half effort to spell your words correctly, with at least some first grade resemblance to punctuation, is also appreciated.

The FAQ site here, linked above will be tremendously helpful to you. The information you have asked has been posted here hundreds of times.
