Default Unlock calculator BB 8700 in the web for free?

Please Login to Remove!

My next tought is, whether there are any possibilities to get this program over web, which calculates the unlock code upon IMEI.

No unlock calculators are available.
You want to unlock, you have to pay.
Enough already.

This is interesting. One can (illegally) find music, movies, software, all kinds of content online without paying for it. What is the phenomenon that prevents unlocking algorithms from falling into the filesharing world?

No offence but you've posted so many times inquiring about unlocking your BlackBerry. There are threads about this with info posted and if those didn't help you try a google search. Just pay a few dollars and have it done and get on with it. Posting the same thing over and over is just a waste of space.

Dear Nitty, please understand me as the beginner in BB questions. I am still trying to solve this problem, that for you is simply non existing, that's why I am posting... But I am grateful for your critical and fresh thinking...

The issue is a BlackBerry with a carrier-subsidy lock isn't a problem, it's a feature - a feature for the carrier. Get the carrier to unlock the phone. If you have an account in good standing and have been a customer for a while (3-6 months, it varies) you should be able to ask for an unlock code for international use. This is the downside to purchasing cheap phones - the phones will have carrier subsidies on them and thus be locked to that carrier. Which on the surface seems to be fair since the carrier is sharing part of the purchase price of the phone with the customer.

The other option is to buy a phone without a sudsidy and therefore no (hopefully) subsidy lock. I seem to recall being able to purchase BlackBerrys completely unbranded (no carrier branding and therefore no subsidy) but the price was A LOT MORE. It was one the order of $500-650 per device thereabouts. Or buy the phone at full retail without a contract and demand the phone be unlocked prior to leaving the store (not likely, but worth a shot).

So the problem isn't the phone is locked per se, the problem is the phone was likely subsidized. The solution may be to ween ourselves (collectively as consumers) off of carrier subsidies of phones, but I don't that will happen as who wants to pay retail? Everyone wants free phones or $200 blackberries.

If you're using T-Mobile and in good standing (pay bill ontime and long time customer). You can request that easily through csr; the turn around time is about 24 hours.

Free and no hassle

The bottom line is there is no web based unlocking calculator. Contact your service provider and see if they will give you the unlock code. If not then you are going to have to pay someone via web to do it or in your local area if there is someone who can do it and have it unlocked that way.

Dear BB_Poland,

You basically get 4 tries before the phone turns into a brick. Here are the steps to unlock it once you have your code.

Insert SIM into device
Power phone on and Turn off the radio (Turn Wireless Off option) VERY IMPORTANT.
Select "Options"
Scroll down and select "SIM Card"
Type "MEPD"
Type "MEP2"
Enter Unlock Code: XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX
Press enter
Reboot device. Device is now unlocked.

I think that about does it. My thanks to the person who posted this on the forum.
