I have a verizon contrat phone samsung sch1770 that i want to use on tmobile prepaid. how can i do that?

You cant, Verizon and T-Mobile use separate wireless standards for transmission making their hardware incompatible.
T-Mobile usesCode division multiple access (CDMA)
while verizon uses the GSM standard. or Global System for Mobile Communication.
Just buy a new T-Mobile phone or get a Verizon Prepaid contract, it sucks but they like to keep their hardwire on their network.
I would suggest contacting a Verizon service representative to discuss prepaid options. Good Luck!

I got a new mobile phone which is smasung from verizon online but i didn't find the place to insert sim card!

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

In the USA phones that use SIM cards operate on the GSM or iDen network(s).

Verizon uses the CDMA network and therefore their phones do not use a SIM card. To activate the phone you'll need to call Verizon and have them activate the phone for service on their network.

How do i unlock the service provider for a LG vx9100 it is a nonsim phone from verizon

That phone will not work with SIM networks. That would be AT&T and T-Mobile. It is on CDMA technology while AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM and the two aren;t compatible. Sometimes a switch from Verizon to Sprint can work since Sprint is also CDMA service.

When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code”.

Very sorry but a verizon phone, like the K1m you have (K1 cannot be Verizon) will not work on Cellular One. Cellular One uses GSM and only AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. services that use SIM cards would be workable.

Verizon and Sprint use a technology called CDMA and their phones do not take a SIM card. No phone from Verizon or Sprint would work with a GSM service like Cellular One, or Dobson, AT&T, etc.

Unlock codes for verizon to use in other service provider

Not happening ... Verizon phones run on a CDMA network. Cingular and T Mobile run on GSM ... Sprint although runs on CDMA .. last i heard were making most of their phones hybrid (CDMSA and iDEN ) and verizon phones can in no way shape or form be made a hybrid phone... specially not an LG phone.

Also, with verizon phones, there's nothing to unlock .. they are ESN bound phones meaning only the service provider can say YES or NO weather they'll use it on their network or not. There's no CIM cards

How to unlock?

Its impossible to use the T-Mobile sidekick on any other network as it is designed only for use on the t-mobile network it cannot even be used on T-Mobile in a different country e.g. T-Mobile US sidekick cannot be used on T-Mobile UK , Even if somehow you managed to unlock the device then you still couldnt take it away from the network as it requires special features on the network to be used and those are only available on T-Mobile . So really if you want a sidekick you can only have it on T-Mobile.
