Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

SOURCE: subsidy code

Phones are locked to their carrier so you cannot switch carriers with that phone. The subsidy code is a code that will unlock the phone so it can be used on different carriers. You can get that code from the previous carrier if they are nice enough. But most won't because you are not a customer anymore. Here is a way i recommended a T-mobile customer to get their phone unlocked for cingular.:

There are a couple of ways to do this, one is completely safe and the other is fairly safe, but may require you to mail the phone in to someone to have this done.

The best way is if you are still a T-Mobile customer, to call them and have some good reason to use it on a different carrier. The best excuse is that you will be traveling overseas and want to use carriers there so the calls will be cheaper. Do not let on that you will be switching carriers. They did my Razr for me and it took about 3 days for the code. When you call customer service, just tell them that you want to submit a sim unlock request. They will transfer you to a different department. They will gather info (like the phones serial number) and will email you the unlock code. Their website says that they will only unlock one phone per account every 90 days. But they unlocked 2 phones for me in the same phone call (both were razr's). Once you unlock it it can be used on any carrier except Verizon and Sprint (different technologies). Then just switch carriers. For more info on this you can go to T-Mobile.com and type in "sim unlock request" in the search box.

The other way, which may include mailing your phone to a stranger is having someone unlock it for you. There are services on-line that will do this. Some can do it without mailing the phone to them. But some require you to mail it to them so they can unlock it with a cable instead of the code. The usual cost is about $20.00

But the best way if you are not with T-Mobile anymore is to call around to authorized retailers and ask if the unlock phones. Some do it for about $20 (but no mailing it in risk) and some do it for free is you sign up to a new carrier through them. They want your business any way they can get it.

SOURCE: can i unlock a sprint palm pre to be used on an at&t service plan

absolutely not. SPrint is a CDMA network, meaning the device must be manufactured specifically for that network. CDMA networks use HEXidecimal codes to connect to the network. This is the same type of service used by cricket, verizon, and many other providers that use CDMA devices. Your Palm can be "flashed" with the proper setting to work on any of these networks, but as long as the network requires a sim card it will not. Sim cards are used on GSM networks, which run on a totally different frequency lvl.

THe only way to make the device work is to be a phone genius and "hack" a sim port onto the board. Unfortunately, this is so complicated, i have only been able to it to one device (a first generation palm centro) and the device experienced many problems and after a few months, shorted out completely.

SO DONT TRY!!!! your best bet is to find someone that will trade you straigh out.

GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!

SOURCE: My first problem: I have a Verizon Samsung Alias

No, you cannot unlock the Palm Pixi Plus and put it on a plan that is not compatible with a smartphone. If you want to continue to use Verizon service, you will have to purchase a phone that is compatible with your current plan, or change to a different plan that will work with your Pixi Plus.

"Smartchip not provisioned MM # 2" What does this mean???


Your smartchip apparently isn't active with your cellphone service company. Are you certain that the chip you have installed in the phone is the one that your cell service gave you currently? You mentioned putting minutes on your phone, so I'm assuming you have a pre-paid plan. You must have a smartchip that's specifically set up for that type of service.

I have LG KP00 Cookies and with Airtel prepaid card. so how can i activate Gprs?


By default all the airtel phones are blessed with automatic already activated of airtel live but with this kind of gprs plan activated ,you can’t reach any other sites on web as there is a firewall that blocks any request to any other sites other than airtel live.But there are other types of airtel gprs plans other than this which allows much better connectivity to all the websites on web.
So today i am going to tell you how to activate any type of grps plan on your phone simply by sending a sms or through web directly.

Airtel Live - (pre installed on all pre-paid & post paid) - In this plan a user is able to do GPRS but the only site that is browsable is Airtel WAP site.
Charges for airtel live- No browsing charges for airtel live but downloads are charged.
Airtel Online - (This gprs plan can be activated by sending two sms one by one. For activation send SMS
AO to 6333 & ALL to 2567) and ( For cancellation send SMS AO CNCL to 222 ) - In this type of plan a user can access to any website on web on his/her phone but with a limited bandwidth of 5o mb.
Charges for airtel online- Rs 15o p.m (per month) are charged.
Airtel Mobile or Mobile Office - (For activation send SMS MO to 6123) - In this type of plan user can access to any web site on web with a unlimited bandwidth.
Charges for airtel mobile- Rs 600 p.m (per month) are charged.
If you have any problems in activation call 121
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);

Pay as go phone


If the phone has ever been activated as a prepaid phone, the ESN is locked for 6 months, and verizon will not activate it on a postpaid account during that time. I suggest you tell the eBay seller this and try to get your money back. If however the phone has never been activated as a prepaid phone it should work fine, and you might try going to another verizon location (the rep might just want you to buy a new phone and sign another 2 year contract...)
