Unlocking a Blackberry Pearl...
I've got a blackberry that is currently locked to Vodafone, that I want to take overseas with me this weekend... any ideas on how I can get it unlocked, or does someone on here have access to the codes??? Willing to pay to get it done.

Am desperately trying to get this done, because the guy that was supposed to do it for me has buggered me around for 10 days and has just told me that he can't get the code.

Thanks!!

I have a BB pearl but I didn't realise they could be locked to networks. Maybe try reinstalling the operating software from RIM? Or does it require some haXoring?

It requires hax0ring...

Ive tried a couple of things, but nothing seems to work so far - unless there is some sort of way that I can delete the OS and reinstall?? Would this wipe the Vodafone lock off it though?

Oh and I should add that I don't have the original disks/software because when I moved I threw it out (stupid stupid!)

There appear to be some paid unlocking services, which are done remotely:

http://www.askstudent.com/hacking/ho...-unlock-codes/

Apparently people sell the service on ebay too. I imagine you'd have to find someone in Australia though.

Can't vouch for any of this info personally, they're just google hits.

wicked! now have the unlock code, but can't get any of my other SIM cards to work in it (currently have 3 and Telstra sims...)

Might go hunting around the office to see if anyone has another carrier SIM

Hold up! The unlock instructions should have been stickered to the box, and it's FREE to unlock if you go as directed to the website here...

www.vodafone.com.au/unlock

You should then be able to put a non-Voda SIM in (you already have 3 and Telstra which should do the trick), then follow the instructions given with the unlock code.

Yeah i tried unlocking it myself, but for some reason it kept saying invalid SIM... i tried 12 different SIM cards in it too!

Ended up sending it to a place in the city, they unlocked it for $40 (with the code that I had provided them, which incidentally I didn't get charged for on the Vodafone website!).

Works like a charm now - WOO!

The 'Invalid SIM' is the prompt to follow the instructions that are included with the unlock code (eg. with some Nokias, one must put a *pw# or something before the code is entered.) I don't think I've ever unlocked a Blackberry so not sure on the rest of the procedure.

Good to hear it's now working now, bummer that even a call to Vodafone would only have cost $25 to have them talk you through the steps.

Not to worry, done now.

OH GOOD!

Thanks for that priya. However I'm not sure if I can trust your link unless J-Rod, our resident gadget guru has given it the all-clear first.

They call it a Blackberry Pearl, because when you see it you turn 360 degrees and walk away.

lock Blackberry Torch
For everyone who is about to unlock your phone. Please don’t go for free code and unlock code generators. Most of these codes won't work and this will reduce your chances to unlock your phone. Always go for some trusted websites. Pay some dollars and get the original codes. I got my code form UnlockGenie,com

I got my code instantly and I unlocked my phone without any trouble. :-)

That's UnlockGenie,com for those playing at home. Not unlockgenie.com like those other regular boring unlock websites…
