How to unlock Blackberry Torch

The AT&T Blackberry Torch is a quad-band phone and, unlocked, should work on almost  GSM network.  To unlock the BlackBerry Bold 9700 you’ll need an unlock code in order to remove the cell phone’s SIM lock. If you’ve picked up the AT&T Blackberry Torch, it came with a SIM lock that prevents the device from working with another “unaccepted” carrier and only work on the Rogers Wireless network. If you remove the SIM lock on your BlackBerry Torch, because it is a quad-band GSM phone, you are free to use it on almost any GSM mobile network.

To unlock your phone for free, contact the carrier the device is locked to, like Rogers, AT&T, etc.  If the carrier won’t provide you a free unlock code we have linked to a couple of the best online sources for unlock codes throughout this article. After you obtain your Blackberry Torch unlock code you can use the following free unlock code instructions:

How To Unlock BlackBerry Torch

1. Turn off the Wireless Radio
2. Next go to Settings > Options > Advanced Options > SIM Card
3. Now, hold down the ALT key and press the keys that correspond to: m e p d
4. Next hold down the ALT key again and press the keys that correspond to: m e p 2
5. You should see a menu where you can put in a 16 digit code and 10 tries to punch it in correctly.
6. After you enter in the code, press Enter.
7. It should say “Device Unlocked” and you have an unlocked Blackberry.

How To Get An Unlock Code

Getting a free code from your carrier doesn’t always work.  If you’re having difficulty getting your unlock code from  AT&T or any other carrier for the Blackberry Torch we recommend gsmunlocklabs.com or instantblackberrycode.com/ for all your BlackBerry unlocking needs.

Note: Instructions on this page (and site) are not guaranteed to work with every model. If you enter the wrong unlock code too many times you could enable a security lock on your SIM card.
