If you have already purchased this phone and have decided to change carrier, or perhaps you are vacationing and want to use it with another SIM card, then you have to unlock the phone so that it doesn’t remain restricted to only one carrier. If you don’t unlock it, you won’t be able to use it any other SIM card apart from its original SIM and the moment you try to insert a new SIM card in to it a warning message will pop up on the cell phone.
Following the instructions given below, you will be able to unlock Blackberry Torch 9810 easily.
- Insert a different SIM card (should not be from your original network provider) in to your handset. Then on your handset.
- Once your handset is on a message will appear saying that your present SIM card needs an unlock code. Would you like to unlock it? Click on ‘Yes’
- Then you need to enter the unlock code and if you don’t have one then you need to avail it from a provider.
- Once you enter the unlock code, ‘Code accepted’ will pop up ion the screen and now your BlackBerry handset is unlocked forever.
As soon as your unlock code is typed in and is accepted by your phone then it is unlocked permanently. After that you can put in any SIM card from any carrier across the globe and the mobile phone will automatically acquire the network.
