    I was just wondering if there is a way to unlock a CDMA Blackberry to use it on another CDMA network. I see unlock codes for GSM the ones that use SIM cards but never CDMA?
    if so How do I obtain that code?

    Short Answer- NO
    There is flashing of CDMA phones available but it's not the same thing. It just makes it locked to another carrier. It' expensive and not always successful.
    Flash Cell Phone to Metro PCS, Cricket, Alltel, Verizon, Sprint

    If I'm not mistaken that ESN also has to be in the data base of the new carrier you're trying to use that CDMA phone for.

    CDMA phones are not locked. Dumb phones are flashed with the carrier's OS, but BlackBerry devices are not. It's controlled by the ESN. If Cellular South will activate a Verizon Wireless device, then you can buy one retail at VZW and activate it on Cellular South--just ask them. That's not likely tough...
