I recently purchased a unlocked Blackberry 9550 & the Blackberry PIN is locked to Verizon thru a BES service account. Myself & the person that sold me the phone have tried to get the PIN released, but first I was told that it was not thru Verizon, then afterwards I was informed that it was attached to a BES service thru Verizon. All I would like to do is get the Blackberry PIN released, so I can use it with my BIS service in a foreign country & I am even willing to hook it up on Verizon once I am back in the USA, but only if I can actually get the PIN released. I have tried to follow you, so I could send the information required for you to look into it, but my request has not been accepted yet.
There are third party PIN/Device unlocking services. do a google search for them. You pay a fee to that company instead of going through the hassle of waiting for the cell provider.
You will need the full device name, serial number and esn or emeid from the device to get the unlock code.
You are talking about a different code. This can not be done without the provider. If you read my last comment, the phone is unlocked already. Thanks for your input anyway.
There are a SIM unlock code to use on another providers service (that is the the question portion I said google on for a company) Then there is a Phone Unlock Code (PUK) this information is located on the My Verizon Web Portal under your account if you have one.
Maybe we have our codes mixed up
I am not sure if you have any idea what I am looking for. The phone is "UNLOCKED". I do not need the Phone Pin, Sim Pin or PUK. I need to have the BLACKBERRY PIN (the one used for BBM & registering the blackberry to RIM) RELEASED from Verizon. As I said prior, thanks for your help anyway.
Definitely no need to be hostile towards Elector since he helps a countless number of people on here. Only thing you can do is try and contact technical support again and see what they can do for you. That is always the issue of purchasing an "UNLOCKED" phone as you put it. Best of luck to you and your "UNLOCKED" Blackberry.
