How to unlock droid bionic


Hello,

A "Subsidy Unlock Code" is a code that is unique to your phone.
The code is assigned by the original service provider the phone was manufactured for so that it cannot be taken to another carrier for activation without their permission.

Most times you will receive the message " Enter Special Code " when you insert a SIM card from a diferent carrier. Motorola cannot provide subsidy unlock codes. You will need to contact the original service provider for further assistance.

It is verizon phone no longer has service want to unlock so i can use it with my at&t service.


You cannot switch verizon phones with at&t phones because at&t has simcards and verizon doesn't operate on the same network as at&t. It can't be done.

I just had given to me a brand new at&t motorola backflip mb300 cell phone. I am a prepaid verizon customer. I would even consider a verizon monthly plan over at&t rates. is it possible to...


Hello,

the truth is that you can unlock the phone ,but you can't unlock all phone for free.

The payment sites are very cheap you could try it out and see.

You can the link below to unlock .

Note: unlock is not free, You will be charged to get your unlock code.

The only way by which you can get the unlock code for free is by calling your service provider

and requesting for your unlock code.

If you service provider refuses to give it to you, then there is no other place where you can

get a free unlock code.

Visit the links below if you are interested in buying the unlock code:

Motorolla sliver asking for subsidy password


Justification for use of Subsidy PasswordThe term "subsidy" refers to the subsidization of cell phones sold to customers that purchase mobile phones as part of a contract with the mobile service operator. Many network operators provide these subsidies as an incentive for users to sign extended contracts, and use the subsidy lock as a means of protecting their investment. The installation of such locks means that users often are forced to purchase a different phone if they decide to switch their network (of advantage to both the OEM manufacturer and cellular service provider).
CDMA cellular providers that use SUBSIDY locks on their handsets:
Ntelos, Cricket, Sprint, Quest, US Cellular & SureWest. (Not a complete list)
GSM: (SIM LOCK) T-Mobile Cingular AT&T
Alltel or Verizon Wireless do not use any type of subsidy locks on their CDMA phones. Default Code:000000 or 123456 or 654321
Prepaid cellphones from Alltel & Verizon Wireless come locked from the store, but Verizon Wireless prepaid cellphones can be unlocked with a call to Verizon.
Link for more information about the "subsidy lock" [1]

[edit]Unlocking services and softwareAs a result of the lack of open access to the Subsidy Password database, a number of online services have grown around providing alternative unlocking software. The methods used to unlock cell phones varies although most involve reading the code from the phone and resetting it.
Network carriers some times unlock their customer's phones. The practice is not different from that when a user unlocks his own phone. While one could consider that the DMCA brings the legality of such applications under question, recent legal cases such as Lexmark Int'l v. Static Control Components have confirmed that the use of software to reprogram such phones is not illegal. This is particularly true since unlocking applications increase compatibility with alternative networks, promote positive competition and allow customers greater freedom to use the phones that they own.
There are no prohibitions to unlocking in the United Kingdom.

Can Unlocked Verizon Blackberry Be Used on AT&T?


Sadly, no - the blackberries that Verizon use are CDMA, and will only work on their network (in theory, they would work on Sprint, too - but in practice it's nearly impossible to get either network to activate a ESN that doesn't belong to one of their branded phones).

Verizon phones can they be unlocked to use with another carrier


verizon phone can be reprogrammed to be used with sprint. to do it yourself would be highly technical and not recommended. check to see if sprint offers reprogramming services. verzion has one.

Logo itune and no servise


Hi there,

If the iPhone is brand new, it has to be activated using the iTunes software on the pc, plug the iPhone in and follow the guide.

as for the iPhone saying no service and insert SIM, the iPhone will only work with O2 (UK) and Verizon (USA) unless the phone is unlocked to be allowed for use by all carriers.

if you find out that the phone isnt unlocked you will need a SIM Card for either O2 or Verizon Depending on which country you're from !
