Help unlocking Bold 9700 Please
I have a new Bold 9700 with Bell Canada, I was checking around on their site when I came across this (see below) I found this when checking my account, the question I have is this the unlock code for my phone or do I still need to go to one of the unlocking services, thanks for any help
Unlock my SIM card
Your SIM card has a pre-set code (PIN code). If you activate your code, you will be asked to enter it every time you turn on your phone. For security reasons, you should change it to a new code of your choice that you will remember easily.If your code is active and you enter it incorrectly 3 times in a row, your SIM card will be locked - and you won't be able to use your mobile phone, except for emergency calls, until it is unlocked with a master security code (PUK).
Below is the master security code that will allow you to unlock your device and select a new 4-digit code.
Master security code: 8----------1
Once you have used your master security code to unlock your phone, you'll be prompted to create a new (PIN) code and the error counter will be reset. Please make sure you choose a new code that's easy to remember and write it down in a safe place separate from your phone.
Please be careful when entering your code. If the code is entered incorrectly 10 times in a row, the phone will lock permanently. If this happens, you will have to purchase a new SIM card to unlock and use your phone.
If you require a new SIM card, please visit one of our Bell retail locations.

Do you have to Type MEP2 in prior to entering this code?
I am not sure, I looked around on the Bell site but they are not offering any info on how to do it, I will go to one of the Bell stores tomorrow and see if they can give me the info
I would be interested to know. Typically a carrier is not that open about unlocking a device. It would surely impress me if it was. Keep us posted.

BlackBerry 9700 BOLD has 2 codes. First is MEP2 and MEP4 (Service Provide, aka, SP).
