Unlocking Verizon LG phones?


May 15, 2008, 10:42 AM
I got my LG enV phones from Verizon. My question is, do i need to unlock the Phones first before i can use it with another provider in my home country. Because we uses the same CDMA modes down here in Indonesia. Thx

Yes, I believe you will need to unlock the phone first before you can use it with another provider.

But check to see in, call them up and ask.

That is inaccurate, you can unlock verizon phones. Metropcs is doing it and you can now take sprint, verizon, and alltel phone on metropcs network.

Metropcs is allowing using other CDMA phones with their service but its not unlocking the phone at all. as far as I know CDMA phones do not work that way, but as long as you can get the settings right for a company, the phone will work with that company but companies like sprint and verizon are very very strict about that.

not sure about the LG phones, but moto's you can easily flash to the software of your carrier and then use it as long as your carrier doesnt care where the ESN comes from

You can unlock the phone but make sure you are using cdma and not the wcdma...they are 2 completely different technologies....i was unaware of any country besides american using cdma.....
