    I'm having a hard time finding a website for it. Do you know of one? This phone does not take a SIM card nor has any of our other Sprint phones ever used one.

  • mariposa6009 Sep 12, 2008

    I called Sprint and they show it active on another account even though it is not (Embarq verified), so they can not activate the phone. Sprint is the one that told me I had to speak with Embarq and the transfered me there. Embarq told me it can not be used for Sprint. Embarq was Sprint's local provider. I guess they are no longer attached. I'm just hunting for a jailbreak or something now.

Most likely, you will have to purchase an unlock code from another website that is specific to your phone. There is no guarantee though that there is a code for it. You will also need a valid Sprint SIM Card. Please be aware though, if you do manage to unlock your phone, not all of the features may work. Features that are specific to the Embraq network will not work after the unlock. And you will not gain features specific to Sprint due to it not being an original Sprint phone. As long as you are ok with that then go for it. Look for the best price though. They vary from website to website.

    I looked into it more and I'm going to recommend you go to your local Sprint retailer (an actual Sprint store) and ask them if they can simply switch you over. Where I live, the Embarq Network is not available. But from looking into it more, I think Embarq is actually part of the Sprint Nextel Network. So you should be able to just get your phone transferred over. Comment back to let me know if you can do anything.



    PS - There are no unlock codes for that phone sadly. I apologize.

    Wow. Bummer. And Embarq will not cancel the service or anything linked to the phone? I'll continue to search and see what I can find.

    I found out that Sprint Nextel let Embarq go a little while ago. I also found that it's very difficult to find anything for that phone. I did find one thing though. I think it's going to require a data cable for your phone though. I'll give you the link to where I found it. Try the file that's in there and read through what those people posted. What your looking for may be in there.

Can you tel me how to unlock my sanyo katana II cell phone on the sprint network?


NETWORK UNLOCK CODE:

You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile...
The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Flash-your-cell-phone
It has an video explanation.

If your mobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock code(NUC) by just contacting the current network provider customer caredepartment.It is free of cost.

Therestrictioncodecan be got from your old service provider..This restriction code iskeptto prevent someone who stole themobile from using it withanotherprovider...

They will have a security check done with your date of birth etc..to verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..

After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..

It is all free of cost donot pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.

The above proceudre works and you can verify that by seeing the rating of an happy customer here..

How do I unlock my Sanya Katana II cell phone bought in U.S.?


Contact Sprint and tell them you are going overseas and wish to use a local SIM card. They will provide you with the code and instructions. As for risks, there really aren't any to speak of. The only risk is that if you insert the unlock code 5 or more times incorrectly, the phone will be permanently locked to Sprint.

Six months is well under the manufacturer warranty. Call Sprint or take it into a store.
