    I am a former alltel customer and now I am a verizon customer. I lost a phone and bought this samsung off ebay which is an alltel phone. I just want it to work with verizon.

    I'm unsure about the term unlock. My phone is a cdma phone. It does not have a sim card.

  • sjllca1965 Jan 31, 2010

    Are you looking for the security code to unlock the cell phone so you can use it with a different phone service provider/SIM card?

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 may be 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” companies in your area.
You can also try this WEB site :-
http://www.mobileunlockguide.com/mobile-phone/
The IMEI number is unique the each mobile phone.
The number is printed on the label under the battery.
You can also get the IMEI number by entering this on your phone
*#06# It will then display your IMEI number and you may also get a unique global serial number. Your IMEI number should be 15 digits.

    Do you know if Verizon support a cdma phone network?

    Normally, CDMA phones are NOT considered unlockable. Most providers, will not under any circumstances activate a phone that are not one of theirs, so an unlocked CDMA phone would be useless to you even if you get an unlocked CDMA phone and by some chance are able to have it activated with your provider, many of the features will not work correctly unless someone with quite a bit of technical knowledge reprograms the phone to your provider's specifications.

How can i unlock my sch-i200 Samsung galaxy. I need help unlocking my Samsung from Verizon to other gsm network (country unlock). Please help


Verizon uses the CDMA network which (as far as I'm aware) doesn't work in GSM countries (unless the phone of course uses both) your best bet is to take it into your local Verizon shop and ask them

How do i unlock my verizon phone?


you can not. Verizon uses CDMA technology (no SIM, different type of tower) which cannot be unlocked by codes. They can done by flashing. If you are able to unlock you can only be able to use it with other CDMA network in the world.

The Samsung Smooth is a CDMA phone since it is offered through Verizon. It is possible to unlock this phone, but very difficult and requires advanced unlock software.
