You need to find the unlock code first. The unlock code for a BB 7290 is unique to each phone and based on the IMEI.

If it's not active with a carrier anymore it's doubtful they will give you the unlock code. Your best bet is to use a place online like the link below. You pay them X dollars, provide IMEI and they give you unlock code which as Tiras25 said, is unique to each device. Once you obtain the code, go to:

Options > advanced options > SIM card
type in MEPD
then type MEP2
enter unlock code
power off device then turn back on

There should be a way to figure out those unlock codes without having to pay... I have more that 100 phones that I need to unlock to sell them
