    I think all you need is the MSL number....its a 6 digit code. On the Sprint ones, its different for each device - you have to call them to get it...but on the Verizon ones, I think its all zeors....

    to unlock it...
    ##(MSL)#

    so on a Verizon phone...
    ##000000#

    If you're in the U.S... there are what.. two providers you could use these phones with? Verizon & Sprint?

    In any case, Sprint keeps a list of known id's of phone it sells, so you cannot 'unlock' a phone and use it on their network. They simply won't activate it on their end.

    There have been rumors of people trying to move a phone from Sprint to Verizon, but I suspect those were just rumors, and that nobody pulled that off either.

    You're probably out of luck..

    Thank You, Ehud.
    But is TechnoHippie's way is the right solution?
    Because i want to buy xv600, and use it in indonesia.
    If it cannot used here, i will lose about $500 for nothing.

    You need to set more than those. However, the way to set those is to go to ##PST

    Search.

    Unlocking XV6600

    Ok....so no conversions from Sprint to VZ. How about Tmobile? Sprint coverage sucks where i am (not that T is much better)

    i got a free 6600....a FOF in tech places had a demo'd 6600 they passed on w/o questions, so i am looking to unlock it.


    any hopes of unlocking?

    No. T-Mobile is GSM. These phones are CDMA. NO HOPE OF EVER USING THEM THERE. Has nothing to do with unlocking.

    i guessed as much but there are a number of sites promising to unlock....my bet was on the fact that i got a demo'd unit and thought about seeing if it would fly on my current provider (3 months left). Since i don't understand CDMA and GSM handset architecture (or software) enough to know the impact to the unit, i couldn't help but wonder maybe.

    i understand the network platforms are worlds apart. thxs for such a prompt heads up.

    LOL..... or rather, a fickle friend. nil for IMEI. it is a good thing my co doesn't monitor net usage because i was all over it for a couple of hours.

    i will find it. thx again.
