Default 8700c IT Policy Removal

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,

I have a 8700c I performed the IT policy removal method that I got off this website. I am able to use this phone with my carrier but I still have to enter a password to unlock the phone. I can't disable the password because there is no longer an option to disable/enable the password since I performed the IT policy removal hack. I really would just like to use this phone normally without having to enter a password all the time. Also how do you turn the volume up when using the speaker option and is there also a way to get rid of the Cingular splash screen when turning on the phone. Any help to these question would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Great site by the way, have spent many hours reading the various post so far.

There should be an option to disable it. Go to Options >Security Options >General Settings. Next to Password it should say "Enabled." Can you change that to disabled? You may need to enter your password to change it.

When on speaker phone simply roll the wheel up to turn the volume up.

No, the Cingular splash screen is hard coded to the device and can't be changed.

Could it be that your SIM is asking for the SIM PIN rather than a device lock code?

That is correct, it is now asking for pin code??? What is that??? More specifically it says "Enter PIN Code" (10 Left)?????

What you need is called a 'Pin Unlocking Code' or "PUK" for short. Just call your provider and ask for it, they should give it to you no problem. It's a specific code derived from your specific sim card so you'll need to call them to get it. The "10 chances left" means after 10 incorrect pins have been tried, the sim card locks itself up and you need to get another one. Once you've got the PUK from your provider and enered it, the phone should come up like normal and you'll need to disable the setting in the phone asking for it.

The phone is a Cingular brand which I am now using with T-Mobile, do I get this puk code from Cingular or T-Mobile??? So far I am leaning towards replacing my Nokia N73 with this blackberry if I can get everything working right. As of right now everything has worked great except the fore mentioned problem.
