How can I unlock a verizon Phone?

The short answer is that you cannot unlock a verizon phone for use on T-mobile.

There are exceptions, but it is a bit complex, so I'll do my best to keep it simple.

Most cellular networks these days operate using GSM radios, which use SIM cards. While most of the newer Verizon phones these days do use SIM cards, that's only for the new 4g/LTE radios they have.

The basic verizon service does not use a SIM card, or even GSM at all, but rather an older technology called CDMA. The difference is most easily compared to the difference between analog television and digital television. So while you can unlock a verizon phone, chances are the model you got has an LTE SIM card, and not a GSM SIM.

The exception would be certain phones that do have a global model, which come with two radios. One CDMA to work on the basic Verizon network, and the other a GSM so that you can insert a SIM card and take your phone to another country, where GSM is actually more of an international standard.

So unless you have a Global model of a verizon phone, the chances are very slim you'd be able to take your current device over to another provider. If, however, you do have a global model, then taking your phone to a Verizon store and telling them you wish to have it unlocked as you will be cancelling your contract with them and switching to another service, they would likely have to help you.

How do you download a web browser for Verizon BB9530 now unlocked to AT&T

Hi, let me straight about the meaning of unlocked phone. If your phone already unlocked from verizon network using blackberry storm 9530 unlock code, you can use any sim card on that phone. Which mean you can access data service, internet service or everything else only from your sim card network provider. So if you use an att sim card on your mobile phone, there is no way to download verizon web browser and why you need verizon web browser? Why you just not to use att web browser? If you still insist to download verizon web browser you can replace your att sim card with verizon sim card, then you can download that web browser on your blackberry and what is the point you spend some of your money for blackberry unlock code if you still using verizon sim card?

I just need to know which sim card i should i be using with panasonic toughbook

If your laptop is capable of using wifi through a cellular phone provider then you will use the sim card that comes with the service you purchase from a specific cellular service provider. So if you haven't purchased a service with anyone yet I would suggest contacting a provider in your area, i.e, AT&T, Verizon, US Cellular, etc. Then after you purchase service with them for this cellular internet they will send you a sim card to put into the laptop which will then allow you to get on the internet. Let me know if you need more help, and if this fixed your problem please mark this as solved. Thanks.

I am trying to unlock my Blackberry Curve 8330 with Verizon so I can use it with AT&T, how do I do this? I typed in the ##000000 so I am at the CDMA Service Edit Screen but now I am lost, help!

Your phone is CDMA (Doesn't use Sim Card), AT&T is GSM (Uses Sim Card). It woudl be pointless trying to unlock this phone for use with at&T. Your phone can only be used with Boost Mobile if unlocked.

Unlocked verizon blackberry world phone wont work with t-mobile

i believe i had had the same issue.

i unlocked an at&t phone and put in the sim card and it wouldnt work. i called tmobile and the representative told me that they have to register the sim card to their network or something.

so just call tmobile and tell them you got a new phone and want to register it so the sim will work in the unlocked phone.

Cell phone sim card

All mobiles have a sim card and are normally located under the battery.

Take the back of your phone, remove the battery and it should be there. Sim cards are normally a small oblong piece of plastic with a corner cut off. The flip side of one will have a metal strip, which is your sim memory. Don't damamge this side of the sim otherwise your card will be useless.

Hope this helps?
