I'm fairly certain that isn't possible. You have Sprint which is a CDMA format and NTELOS which is a TDMA format. They basically speak two different languages and thusly aren't compatible with the same towers.

If you wish to unlock the phone, keep in mind that the locks are based on several things.
1. Phone Make and Model
2. IMEI
3. Provider

There are several code calculators out there such as Crux and USR that may help you out with either a code or flash unlock, however, I'm not sure this is prudent to you as I've explained before, the two network types aren't compatible.

Will my phone work


Above is incorrect. Boost uses two different networks each is different technology. The one using SIM cards is the IDEN network (Nextel). The other is Sprint (who owns Boost) and that does not take a SIM, it's a CDMA network. All Sprint phones can work on this network,but you must get Boost to activate the phone. They won't do this unless you are already a customer and tell them you are replacing a broken phone, then give the Sprint phone ESN# (under battery) for them to log in your account. If you have a Sprint LG Rumor it will then work without unlocking or flashing, no changes necessary.

Need to use this phone for t mobile and its a sprint phone


No that would not be possible, Sprint is a CDMA carrier (they dont use simcards) where as AT&T is a GSM carrier (they use simcards). Sprint and AT&T use different cell technology and are NOT compatible with each other, you can only make a GSM phone work with AT&T such as those from T-Mobile (but it has to be unlocked).

Need to unlock lg rumor


the lock code is the last 4 digits of your phone number (unless you previously changed it when you first got the phone). This is the default for all phones - again, unless you already manually changed it. If you did then you'll need to call customer service and they will reset your lock code. Pretty easy.
