How to unlock a Bell or TELUS BlackBerry Storm

TELUS storm large

Unlocking the BlackBerry Storm has been a real pain for consumers. Since the TELUS and Bell Storm devices were released, they have been a success in the consumer market, which also means there has been a large demand to have them unlocked.

The Verizon 9530′s were unlockable, allowing us to use their tri-band phone on the Rogers network here in Canada. Sadly, we could not say the same for Bell and TELUS devices. Attempts at hacking the device have been met with failure. A team in the UK that was charging 15 GBP to unlock any BlackBerry, tried to crack the TELUS and Bell Storms, but were unsuccessful. A few companies managed to find an unlock solution for the 9530 from TELUS and Bell, however, it stopped all data on the devices from working.

Now all that has changed.

I was recently contacted by a company cellfservices.com who say they are now able to unlock TELUS and Bell Storms. The unlock typically takes about 1-3 weeks, and the process is slightly more expensive than your typical unlock, The process has been tested on 34 devices and has been working flawlessly.

    Any ideas when a Telus Storm Power user can expect a firmware upgrade. I have to do a battery pull twice a day just like my three prior blackberries?

    I had my Telus storm unlocked only to find that i am unable to activate it on any other network within Canada. It seems the telus storm is built so that it can only work in the country or origin with telus. Don't waste your money. I have tried every other provider and none of them work.
