Blackberry Unlocking Tutorial

One of the most popular phones brand on the market today is still BlackBerry. The versatile cell phones from BlackBerry boasts a wide-range of features, including Internet access, appointment scheduling, and still for most of their phones the physical keyboard…  But as with any type of phone, it’s only good if it can work on your local carriers. If your BlackBerry is locked, then you’ll want to take the time to have it unlocked. Fortunately, there’s a six-step process you can follow to unlock your BlackBerry.

Step 1: Identify your Unlock Code

First, you’ll need to identify your unlock code, and to do this you’ll need your phone’s IMEI number.

  • On a BlackBerry 10, click the Advanced tab under the phone’s Settings.
    A dropdown menu should include a Hardware Tab. Click it and you’ll see your IMEI number.
  • On a BlackBerry 6, 7, 8 or 9 you need to click Device under the Options menu.
    Now click Device Status Information, and you can find your IMEI.
  • If you have a BlackBerry 5 or earlier version, simply click Status under the Options menu, and you’ll see your IMEI.

Or simply phone this number *#06# with your keypad.

Step 2: Call, chat online or visit your carrier in person 

Now you will need to contact your carrier; most will unlock it for free if your contract is up.  Tell them you would like to unlock your phone and that you already have the phone’s IMEI number.  If your contract with the carrier is not up, then you may have to take a different route of getting your phone unlocked.

Step 3: Taking an alternative route

If your carrier refuses to give you an unlock code, you can always pay a third-party service provider for one. Before choosing a third-party service provider.  The provider will need your phone’s IMEI number, and although receiving the unlock code may take up to three days, in most cases, it only takes a few hours.

Step 4: Entering you unlock code

Once you have your unlock code, you’ll need to go to your phone’s Settings and select the Security and Privacy tab.  Then click on SIM Card and scroll down until you see Unlock Phone.  Click this tab and enter your code, followed by clicking on OK.  Do keep in mind that you have only 10 attempts to enter the number or otherwise your phone will be disabled.

Step 5: Entering your unlock code on a BlackBerry 7

On a BlackBerry 7, all network connections must be disabled before entering your unlock code.  To turn off these connections, go to Manage Connections and turn off WiFi and mobile networks.

Then go to your SIM Card menu and type “MEPD.”  A new menu will pop up and your Network should appear as Active.  If you have a 71xx, 81xx, 91xx model, instead of typing “MEPD,” you’ll need to type “MEPPD.”

Now type “MEP[Alt]2″.  You may then have to type “MEP[Alt]4″ if nothing happens.  Remember that pressing the Alt key is suggested so that you can type numbers.  For 71xx, 81xx, and 91xx models, you will instead need to type “MEPP[Alt]2″ or “MEPP[Alt]4″.

At this point, you will now enter your unlock code.  Fortunately, you have 255 tries, so it’ll be hard to mess up entering your code the right way.  Once you have entered it correctly, insert your new SIM card.  You can then re-enable your network connections to.

Step 6: Entering your unlock code on a BlackBerry 6 or older version

Simply remove the old SIM card and replace it with the new one.  Turn the phone back on and enter your unlock code

How to Guide on Legally Unlocking an AT&T Phone

It wasn’t that long ago that unlocking your cell phone was like going to the underground black market and purchasing some illegal unlock code, followed then by hitting up a dealer on the way home who dealt unlocking services as a side job. Nowadays, though, that’s all behind us. Thanks to the FCC, carriers must now allow you to unlock your phone if you meet certain requirements.

Here’s a quick look at the legal way for unlocking an AT&T cell phone.

Make sure you meet the requirements

First and foremost, you’ll need to meet the following requirements to unlock AT&T phone:

  • Your contract has ended and all terms have been fulfilled
  • If your contract hasn’t ended, your remaining balance and an Early Termination Fee will have to be paid
  • Your account is in good standing
  • The phone has not been reported lost or stolen
  • The phone must be fully paid for
  • Prepaid phones must have previously had active service with AT&T for at least 60 days
  • GoPhones must have previously had active service with AT&T for 6 months

Locate Your IMEI Number

Once you have made sure that you meet the above mentioned requirements, you’ll then need to identify your phone’s IMEI number, which can be viewed by typing *#06# on your keypad and hitting SEND or CALL. You’ll receive a message with your IMEI number or it will automatically appear on your screen depending on the type of AT&T phone you have.

Give the Number to Your Unlock Code Service Provider

Contact the service provider who you are getting an unlock code through and give them your IMEI number. They will in turn give you an unlock code either for free or for a fee. Do keep in mind that you need to get the code from a trustworthy source or the data on your phone could be exploited. The service provider who gives you an unlock code should provide you with step-by-step instructions for unlocking your phone. If you have any questions, make sure to contact UnlockBase today.

Best and Easiest Phones to Unlock Over GSM Network

When it comes to unlocking cell phones, you need to know whether or not it is CDMA or GSM.  Most carriers in the United States — U.S. Cellular, Sprint and Verizon — use CDMA technology.  T-Mobile and AT&T on the other hand use GSM technology.  To keep things simple, if you want to unlock your phone, you must first identify what carrier the phone was originally used with.  If it was with AT&T or T-Mobile, then you’ll need to go about the unlocking process keeping in mind that the phone operates off of GMS technology.

Here’s a quick look at the best and easiest phones to unlock over a GSM network.

Samsung Galaxy S5

Keep in mind that if you want to unlock your GSM phone, it will have to be used with a different carrier who also uses GSM technology.  To unlock a Samsung S5, first remove the current SIM card and insert one from the carrier you want to switch to.  Now, turn the phone back on. The phone will ask for an unlock code (SIM Network Unlock PIN).  Enter the code that you purchased from a service provider.  If it then asks for a Network Code, enter it as well.  The phone should now be unlocked.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Galaxy Note 4 is the flagship for Samsung when it comes to screen size and resolution.  Fortunately, you can easily unlock your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in as little as three steps.  First, give the IMEI number of your phone to a service provider who sells unlock codes.  To get this number, go to SETTINGS >> About device >> Status.  Then, follow the directions given to you by the service provider and type in the unlock code when asked for it.  That’s it; your phone should be unlocked.

HTC One M8

Need to unlock HTC One M8? This is another GSM phone that is incredibly easy to unlock.  Simply remove the nanoSIM and replace it with one from the carrier you want to switch to.  After turning the phone back on, enter the unlock code you received from an unlock service provider, and voila!  Your phone is unlocked and can be used on any GSM network.
