You can use it on Alltel but until the Verizon/Alltel merger is complete you would only be able to send and receive text messages and make and receive phone calls. You would NOT be able to access any program that requires the internet and you would not be able to send or receive picture messages.

The easiest way to do this is after you add the ESN to you account is to dial *22801 and press send. It should say welcome to Alltel and then all you have to do is press 3 to program your phone and after that is successful you need to Dial *22801 again then press 2 to update your PRL and viola you phone will now be able to talk and text on your Alltel account

I have a Motorola E815 Alltel cell phone and was wondering if I could somehow make this phone compatible with Verizon since they are my current carrier? How do I switch this Alltel E815 to Verizon?


Hi Dawn Lynn Martens,

You can take the device to Verizon to see if they can activate it with their frequency. Since they handle CDMA devices as the Motorola E815.

I WOULD LIKE TO RESET WHAT EVER CODES I NEED TO CHANGE CARRIERS.


Well, with Alltell it may be hard to keep your phone since they use CDMA (pretty sure) which means you cannot just swap SIM cards. But they did just get bought by Verizon so it may be possible to switch up to them and keep the phone, but you will probably have to call them to find out. The people who work at the Verizon store may not be able to help you unless it is a big one.

I have a LG scoop from alltel and i want to put my number on a verizon LG model VX8550A, how do i do that?


if youre trying to program your alltel phone number on a verizon phone yet keep your alltel service its not going to work. the phones are locked to the carriers and cannot be unlocked. depending on where your cellphone number is based out of your serivce will most likely turn into verizon anyway. but as far as i know right now you cannot use the verizon phones.
i could be wrong, i live in an area that is going to become AT&T not verizon.

Can i Buy A Verizon Phone For Alltel?


yes it can.  it IS a CDMA phone and Alltel is a CDMA network.  I live in Ohio and activated an old vx9900 i had on my alltel plan.  you need to get a csr (call, dont go to store.  they are more knowledgeable) to enter the meid into your account.  they will know how to do this but the rest will require work from you too.  you will have to manually program the phone to work on the network.  this is easy if you have a rep that can give you the info to type into the phone.  you will open the phone and type "##program9900" and hit send. a screen will come up asking for a code.  it is all zeros.  go into the first menu setting which is something like service program.  this is where the rep will tell you what to type in for the multiple entrys under this menu.  they go one at a time and can just be typed over and hit ok.  the phone, so far for me, will not send/receive pic and vid messages and you wont be able to d/l apps and tones and use web.  just about anything is off limits except call and text.  enjoy.  its a great phone.

The phone should not be locked. Verizon phones will work on Alltels network. Once it is on the Alltel network you just need to update the PRL. Alltel phones use Alltels network and Verizons network so it really should not matter what name is on the phone.

I want to know if it is possible to unlock a htc diamond with sprint


No, you cannot unlock a CDMA device. Sprint and Verizon devices cannot be unlocked to use with another carrier such as AT&T, Centennaial, T-Mobile, or Alltel because they dont use SIM cards except for the internation phones which only recognize international SIM cards.

sorry you cant as Verizon blocked this feature for some reason, though you can get the file off of the phone on to a computer and then send it to the rumor via bluetooth.
