The Blackberry Network MEP Code

The Blackberry network mep code is a 16 digit unique code that is entered into a Blackberry smartphone after following the MEPD unlocking instructions. Also known as an unlock code, it disables the MEPD 2 function on the Blackberry and allows the phone to work with SIM cards from different service providers. After entering the network mep code the mobile phone is no longer locked to its original network service provider. This can have benefits like using local SIM cards when travelling abroad and saving money on expensive roaming charges. The re-sale value of a phone is usually higher when unlocked. It also helps to unlock a phone if the model you want is not offered on the network you currently use. This type of unlocking is completely legal and will not void the warranty on the Blackberry as no software is used to change the firmware OS.

The Blackberry MEP Number

The Blackberry MEP Number is an identification number used by the RIM factory to give each handset a network origin. MEP means "mobile equipment personalization" and that is its exact purpose. When carriers like Orange or T-Mobile place order for Blackberry handset with RIM, the manufacturer, each handset has to be embedded with the correct firmware and specifications to match the country, language an restrictions that may be ask for by the network provider.

Knowing the MEP number is essential to successfully unlocking a Blackberry mobile phone. Providing the MEP from you handset along with the IMEI number would guarantee a 100% correct unlock code.

However, the MEP number is found on the engineering menu of the Blackberry and it cannot be accessed without first entering a KEY. To get the KEY that gives you access to the engineering menu you need to use an MEP Reader Tool like the one located at: . Use of the MEP reader tool is free and there are very easy to follow step by step instructions with plenty of photos to guide you through the process.

Remember MEP vs MEP - Not the same

So now you understand that although the MEP is a Blackberry thing, the Network MEP Code and the BB MEP Number are two complete different things.
