That 0 tries left is the kicker. I purchased an unlock code on the internet, was having problems. I did have to use the desktop software to get the hex type imei as the 15 or so digit one listed in options -> status on the unit its self was somehow inadequate. The persistent issue caused me to call the code provider company. While speaking to the agent we went the afformentioned setps to get to the screen where you enter the code MEP2, and the counter is zero not ten. The agent explained they were unable to provide a code or a unit in such a situation. I read more on the interweb, and it was explaining that only RIM can unlock this. He gave me a refund.I was hoping I could backup all the data with desktop, then wipe it or re flash it or whatever, then reload the data. Clearing the zero counter.

How to enter codes in BlackBerry

1. Insert any sim card
2. Turn off all of the wireless connections

3. Go to Options
4. Select Advanced Options
5. Select SIM Card
6. Hit menu select show keyboard (where needed)

7. Type MEPD (you will not be able to see the typed info)
8. Type MEP29. Now it will say enter network mep code

10. Enter Unlock Code11. Reboot your BlackBerry .

All done.

if that does not work try this
Oooops, then your BlackBerry is canadian, it's really a rare case please type MEP4 instead of MEP2

you might have to get another unlock code

Does anyone know why it says 0 left, and not 10? I have not tried a single code yet. Can this phone even be unlocked? Or does it even need to. The point is I need to use local sim chips in it while traveling to malaysia so I don't end up paying tons of roamng money.
