Hi, to unlock the is possible to do that.
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 link below if you are interested in buying the unlock code:

Good luck.

Hello,

You can get the unlock code by contacting your current service provider customer care department.If your phone is locked you can use any of your friends phone to make this call. The service provider will then provide you the unlocking codes.
Remember that the reason why the codes are provided only through customer service provider is they will make a check on your name and identity proof at the time of your call. If the information is found to be correct and matching with their data then you will be provided with the codes. Everything is done for free of cost and you are not going to be charged for this process.
This is the universal solution and is useful for many customers who are facing these kind of problems. Don't believe in any websites which provides unlock codes. All are fake. Only your service provider can provide these codes.

Another alternative is, you can take the phone to any authorize phone service center to help unlock the phone, because to unlock your phone, you will need some kind of software, USB cable etc to unlock the phone, so you can also go a nearby phone service center to unlock the phone, but calling your network service provider is the best because they have the records of your phone and can easily help to unlock it.

Take care.

Hello.

Your best bet is to contact Metro for assistance to see if you can use that phone on their plan and how to convert to their plan with this phone, if usable on their network.

All Verizon phones are not compatible with all networks.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

You enter the last 4 digits of your cell phone number it will unlock.

Ask your friend to give you the last four digit of the phone number.

Or

If the above does not work try this.

Unlock the cell phone by first hitting the center button marked OK to pull up the different tasks for the phone. This normally opens up with the contact menu showing.

Push on the right arrow twice to move the highlighted area from contacts to settings and tools. Press the OK button in the center of your navigation circle. This also brings up another menu.

    How do I flash a sprint Samsung galaxy s2 for metro use


    I think what you mean is that you want o unlock it. This a CDMA phone, but there is also an S2 Sprint model which have a min-SIM card (the Samsung SPH-D710). But then again I'm not sure that it can be unlock. One way would be to contact Sprint, they will ask you for an ESN (located under the battery). To flash any firmware you need the firmware and Odin, this is a tool to flash firmware to Samsung devices. But that won't unlock your device.
    I recommend that if possible, visit a Metro PCS store or Kiosk, maybe they can sell you a mini-SIM card and unlock it for you. Metro PCS use CDMA technology as Sprint and Verizon, but Metro PCS is now accepting GSM phones. Best of luck.

    Flashed from verizon to metro pcs cannot get pictures or applications or on web how do I configure phone to connect to metros web settings?


    Metroflashing is for VOICE service only, and Verizon's software is not designed for use on Metro's network. In other words, if you don't know how to get into the phone's programming, you cannot set up this phone's user name and password to get on to Metro's data services using the handset. You can, however, use the phone as a dial-up modem for your PC.

    Once Metro can come up with a way to access the user name and password of the phone's software, they will then let you get data services (e.g. picture messaging, internet, etc...) on your phone.

    I have a LG dare but its not on right now. please read and help


    It is possible to unlock Verizon's phones but you still might not be able to use it on that many networks.
    Verizon is a CDMA network, so it really depends what service provider your friend wants to use. Visit this CDMA Carriers in US site and see if your friends carrier is on CDMA.
    But even if your friend also has a CDMA carrier, you still would encounter a lot of problems, for example sprint would almost NEVER let you activate a non-sprint phone. I heard Metro PCS would let you but that's only something I've heard and can't verify.
    The drawback with unlocked phones is that you won't be able to use much of the services except calling and text messages, so video and picture messages are out the window, and I'm not even 100% sure you can use data plans with the unlocked phones. This is most likely because CDMA phones don't run on SIM cards so the connection is pretty much hard wired into that phone for a particular provider, so a lot of the functions that are carrier provided won't communicate with the phone.

    I hope this information helps.
