How to Unlock a Sprint BlackBerry for Verizon

Save

Use Verizon wireless service on your Sprint BlackBerry by unlocking your mobile device. Sprint has facilitated the handset unlocking process. Customer service provides you with a 16-digit code that you enter into your BlackBerry. The handset is instantly unlocked. In situations where the free code does not unlock your handset, online companies provide BlackBerry unlock codes for a fee. Delivery time of an unlock code from an outside company may not be instant. Inquire before purchasing.

Things You'll Need

  • International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI)

Sprint

  • Contact Sprint Customer Service. Inform the agent you wish to unlock your BlackBerry handset. Provide your international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) number. The IMEI number is located in the handset battery compartment. The agent will give you a 16-digit code.

  • Turn off the handset wireless connection.

  • Enter your 16-digit unlock code. Select the following on your BlackBerry: "Settings" > "Options" > "Advanced Options" > "SIM Card." Hold down the "ALT" key and press "MEPD." Hold down the "ALT" key again and press "MEP2." Enter your 16-digit code when prompted. Your handset is instantly unlocked.

  • Reboot your BlackBerry.

Outside Company

  • Select an unlock code company. Compare prices and delivery times. Delivery times could vary depending on where your wireless service is based.

  • Place your order. You need a valid email address for code delivery. Provide your IMEI number to receive the correct unlock code. Your IMEI number is located in your handset battery compartment. Use a credit card to pay applicable fees.

  • Turn off the handset wireless connection.

  • Enter your 16-digit unlock code. Follow the steps again from Step 3 of Section 1.
