I take it your new bb is not a koodo bb. You'll have to purchase the code from a third party to unlock the bb

Gsmliberty.com or my personal favourite is to use eBay. In particular I've used Zain Dotto twice with success. You're looking for an unlock code. You'll need to know the bb imei and the carrier the phone was originally locked to since it isn't koodo.

Jérémie, un "third party" c'est une compagnie externe. Je donne un exemple. Logitech fabrique des claviers bluetooth pour les iPads de Apple. Logitech est donc un "third party" de Apple. Si vous achetez un clavier fabriqué par Apple, on parlerait alors d'un "first party". Quand Chad vous parle de vous procurer votre code d'un "third party", il veut dire de se procurer votre code ailleurs que chez Koodo pour réaliser des économies. Le site qu'il vous a suggéré est GSMLiberty.

Just to add to this: once you unlock your bb you'll need to choose a bb specific plan unless you're on the bb z10. Otherwise certain functions like data won't work on the phone.

You don't need to do a transfer on line. Change your plan on self serve then wait 15 minutes and put your old sim in your bb and turn the bb on.

MEP code also refers to Network mep . If your Blackberry is locked with your present carrier, you can't use it with any other GSM sim cards internationally . To unlock your Blackberry, use unlock code . You can get it from any of the online vendors like http://www.unbblock.com/unlock-my-bla... to unlock it .
