    So I'm about to buy a 9630 Tour from a guy off Craigslist. The MEID and ESN have been checked out by Verizon (I called them) and the phone is free and clear and not stolen. However the phone is supposed to be unlocked and I am going to be using it in Spain.

    The question is, how do I know for sure the phone is unlocked and can be used with a different carrier. I don't have a SIM to put in the phone right now to check it.


    Edit: I would research it more but I'm currently packing to move to Spain and am supposed to be picking up this phone in a few hours so.

    Thanks,

    Ibiza Rocks

    Options > Advanced Options > SIM Card > hold the SHIFT KEY and type MEPD > if it reads "Disabled" or "Inactive" next to Network then it is unlocked.

    But I believe that you need SIM card in the device. (Not 100% sure on that particular point.)

    No need to hold the shift key .. just type mepd from the keyboard in the sim card menu. As Motorcycle Mama explained, if it is unlocked then beside network it would show disabled. *Yes you need any sim inside this device to make it work.

    The Shift key is the key you use to type capital letters. You don't have that key on the bottom left of the keyboard??
