    Go to options, go to advanced options, go to SIM card, then hold down the left shift key and type in MEPD, it should say disabled or inactive! Hope this works for you!

    You call verizon with a paid up account and sufficient months or years or whatever they require and they will walk you through the steps - Global support folks do it.

    It just means that you have the Verizon/Vodafone SIM that came pre-installed in your phone still installed in your phone. The phone is setup to recognize that SIM but will say ether invalid SIM or unrecognized SIM (or something along those lines) if you use a different SIM

    It is still locked down for GSM. Ether call Verizon or go to a 3rd party unlocker for unlocking.

    I unlocked through Verizon a few weeks ago. My says "Disabled" in all lines EXCEPT NETWORK where it says "INACTIVE."

    Supposedly, Sprints come UNlocked.

    If your device is "unlocked", it should say Disabled or Inactive. If it says Active, it's still locked to that carrier.

    How do I determine if my BlackBerry is "unlocked"? - BlackBerryFAQ

    There are two kinds of locks:

    1. Sim lock: Go to options/ advanced options/ Sim Card, then hold down the left shift key and type in MEPD. If your device is "locked", it should say "Active".

    2. CDMA lock: Dial ##000000 and then hit the call button. If your device is "locked", it should say "invalid password".
