Yes, once it's been used on prepaid for 6 months. Should just be able to register it with verizon after that.

Your best bet is to call Alltel directly. They may be willing to unlock the phone if the phone was on a contract that was fulfilled.

Want to unlock an older Motorola Razr3v from Verizon


When starting a contract with your provider (Verizon), most of the time the mobile phone is SIM-locked. This means, the phone will only operate when you insert only a SIM-card from your provider.
If the contract-period has expired, they should unlock this mobile phone for you at minimum costs, upon your request. This can be done by contacting customer-service.

If you want to unlock the phone, while you still are under contract with Verizon, they are allowed to charge you a certain amount of money. After all, the contract is ment to earn money, which should cover the costs of the mobile phone and the costs for calling by this phone.

There's another way to unlock your mobile phone. There are plenty of shops who offer the service of unlocking your mobile phone. The costs can variate between 5 USD upto,.. well whatever they want / like. Unlocking means, they're going to re-program your mobile phone. And for this, they need dedicated hardware and softeware.

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.

I need a nck code for lg choclate to unlock networks


If you are on a CDMA (the phone has no GSM chip inside) network (Verizon), unlocking the phone will not really do anything for you as you will have to find another CDMA network which will allow you to go to their network with a phone from another network (not likely). ie: you are stuck on Verizon.

Other that this: If you have had your phone ON contract for more than 90 days you can just call your provider and tell them that you are travelling out of the country and you need the phone unlocked.

If the phone is not on contract, they will not unlock it. The easiest method is to purchase the code online. Just google "unlock LG Chocolate" The code should not cost you more than $10-$15. They are usually delivered with step by step instructions.

Again, if you are on CDMA, there is almost no chance that you can switch networks.
