    Correct. CDMA phone cannot be "unlocked" in the same sense as GSM phones...

    you will need the MSL code and the carrier needs to provide you with the PRL file for their network. then program is as you would normally

    there is no guarantee that this will work at all, as the radio version may also impact its compatability. do they use CDMA at the same frequencies there? (800 and 1800)

    I would recommend getting in touch with someone technical the the carrier you plan on using in vietnam and get their imput.

    In the US, we use CDMA at 800 and 1900mhz. In Vietnam, one carrier ("S Telcom") appears to have fairly broad coverage on the 800mhz band. The remainder fo the Vietnamese carriers are using the 450mhz band which is not that common. 450mhz was the old cellular frequency used in Eastern Europe for their analog phones. It has been proposed as a GSM extension frequency, but has not received braud usage.

    Conversely, it would be interesting to see how far a 450mhz signal can go. It should have nice building penetration and fairly good distance. On paper, it makes some sense.

    Here is a link to some info on 450mhz CDMA:

    PS: For my foreign travels, I bought a WCDMA 2100mhz, plus GSM 900/1800/1900mhz with UMTs. It looks like it is soon going to be obsolete the way that they are continuing to add fequencies. Ugh.

    I don't know of any backdoors to determine the MSL. Any chance of talking Sprint out of the number?

    Others have talked Sprint into giving the MSL. That is how they got the "Hacked EVDO PRL" onto the 6600. I think they called and said they needed to program their device.

    My mistake on the US frequency spectrum, I was posting from my ppc-6700 and wasnt able to load the link that listed worldwide CDMA frequency usage.

    I had never heard of 450mhz being used for CDMA, interesting. Im sure it has superb building penitration.

    For those of you who haven't been there, cdg.org is the official website on the CDMA standard and stands in about the same position to CDMA as gsmworld.com stands for the GSM providers.

    CDMA is clearly growing as an international standard and it will be interesting to watch. There is a lot more worldwide CDMA coverage than you'd guess and the international roaming is starting to come.

    If the US adopts the USIM like Chinese CDMA, it would be great for the consumers and deal with one of GSM's biggest advantages (e.g. the ability to swap devices as needed, to buy devices on the open market, and to get prepaid coverage in any country you are visitng). Of course, all of these advantages are for the consumer. The carriers would surely classify all of the foregoing as a "liability."

    Mystery or Non-Existent Notion

    I have recently bought a Sprint Locked Device called HTC Harrier (AUDIOVOX PPC 6600). I got my hands on it on Dec 14 2007. Wow! What a device ! I can't help you UNLOCK your device but till now all I have gathered :

    1 ] I didn't come across any step-by-step tutorial to unlock PPC6600. All were bits and pieces of differcent methods.

    2 ] If someone has really done it it would be using one of these tools :

    [i] mtty.exe
    [ii] BitPim (I'll come to you Mr. BitPim very soon)
    [iii] DMRouter.exe (I've read that 6700 can be unlocked using this)
    [iv ] Dumping ROM to SD card and grep the damn file !

    3 ] I think when we type ##775# we should have a Process Sniffer to watch where exactly does the Unlock application go and verify the entered code.
    Which Instruction sends it and where !! A Process Sniffer written in .NET for Windows Mobile 2003 would help to check the location where it strcmps or whetever method of comparison it does !

    4 ] BitPim for Windows didn't detect the phone and I doubt whether it detected any USB connected fone !

    I read a few lines written by a person how he got the MSL for 6700 using BitPim on Linux and someone mentioned somewhere that BitPim can get 6600's code as well.

    5 ] People have claimed that Sprint gave the MSL to them. Im not in US so I can't call 'em. I believe Sprint must be having a Database of ESN and MSL mapped (unique for each device) (no cracks since its not based on any algorithm or formula) . If someone can hack and get that . We can unlock any Sprint 6600 fone :-P

    So in the end like everyone all over the Internet on CDMA forums I also am not helping you actually but just telling you that I am in the same boat. I have saved lots of tools and help files and webarchives related to unlocking Audiovox 6600. It won't help much. If you want let me know and now I would like to ask something.


    ========
    Will updating with a clean ROM change the MSL ?
    I read that MSL is in some special CHIP in the device and not on the ROM. Is it true ?
    Its definitely not in the registry. Is it in some NVU_ some file ?

    How do I unlock my PPC 6600 ? I want the MSL for it.

    This is a reply to the above post
    ========= PPC6600 OWNERS ATTENTION FOR THOSE WHO NEED SPC OR SO CALLED UNLOCK CODE ========

    Actually I needed the SPC and not the MSL. ##775# and ##3282# and all other codes which asked the password 96-digit) was actually the SPC (Service Programming Code). So far I haven't encountered any restricted area where this SPC didn't work

    I got the SPC from the a zip file called getspc.zip. You may find binaries for WM5 and WM6 but for PPC6600 (Windows Mobile 2003) I found the binary (in same zip filename) from rapidshare. Try your hand at a good search engine and get the executable GetSPC(PPC 2003).exe
    You need to enter your ESN to get the SPC. (Now if you don't know what ESN is or where to find it please stop reading this.) The main works done by PPST_Keygen.dll
    All credit goes to ISOSDCFTP (Check out IsosDcFtp Your Reverse Engineering Study and Socializing HeadQuarters - Powered by vBulletin)

    Also I needed to upload the PRL File and did SID/NID reprogramming

    The final philosophy of unlocking any phone lies in researching both known and unknown knowledge and methods. Teamwork helps but you need to know your phone, its terminologies, the techical details till some level and its meaning.

    P.S. My phone PPC6600 detects the network but the Service Provider is still unable to swap my RUIM number to this non RUIM PPC6600
    If they fail I'll change my carrier again :-)
