Question about Samsung Cell Phones
How can i unlock my samsung fascinate if i forgot my code?
Im pretty sure Telus is CDMA and therefore can't really be used on other
networks except for other CDMA networks, and even so if you do want to
use it on other CDMA networks it is near impossible as Carriers are very
stringent on letting people use other devices on their networks. Its
like trying to use the EVO 4G on Verizon, although CDMA its near
impossible. Hope this answer helps
I have heard no because the phone has hardware that is fine tuned to Verizon and/or Telus' networks and frequencies. Cell phones in the US operate much differently than other parts of the world where all you need is a SIM card and your good to go on another network.
Verizon has a CDMA network and AT&T has a GSM. They are incompatible. Even if you have say a T-Mobile GSM phone, it's not going to work on AT&T's GSM network, nor is it going to work on Vodaphone's GSM network in the UK, because in the US the carriers hard code the phones to their networks, and the FCC has regulated different "bands" of GSM here than what is in use in Europe and the rest of the world.
I do think Verizon and Sprint, since they both use the same CDMA data frequencies, do share data networks in many places, but the voice CDMA2000 part of your phone is still hard locked to your respective network.
If you get an unlocked GSM phone in the UK, you CAN use that phone with other carriers in the UK, because they don't make them locked down to specific networks there
