    They will ask for your account info. They will ask for the MEID(hex) and sometimes the IMEI number. As long as you have been with them for 60 days you should not have any problems.

    Do you have to be a current verizon customer or can anyone with a storm call and have their phone unlocked?

    I got mine unlocked after talking to 2 people. The first guy didnt want to do it. He tried to sell me their global plan for 4.99 mo + .99 per minute. I declined it so he transferred me to some tech support women and she gave me the code and walked me through it step by step. It was simple and Im happy.

    Wow...finally gave this a try...just to do it.

    Called the number the OP listed and spoke to a rep who didn't resist once...she was extremely nice and helpful.

    Just get your MEID ready before you call to keep things going:

    Options>Status>MEID#

    Wow, its amazingly easy to do. You just have to be in good standing on your account for 60 days and have your phone for more than 60 days and they unlocked mines without a problem!

    I just called and had my storm unlocked. It took about 3-4 minutes, and I was never questioned as to why. On the other hand though, I have been a customer since whey back when it was Primco: I also hold vip account status. I don't know if any of that matters, but it was very easy. I'd like to thank MikeP1 for the info.

    Hi, new to this site, read this whole thread up to this point, lots of great info. I am looking at getting a Storm from somebody, very good deal. My dad has been a Verizon customer since before they were Verizon, and has never had a single penalty or late payment. Obviously, this phone is not going to be activated on a plan anymore I would guess, unless this guy is willing to do that for me, but if not, is there any way I can move the Storm to my dad's account for like 10 minutes to get the code? I think I read that a couple people here did something like that, do they send you a bill for this at all? I just want to do it as long as it will take to call and get the code. Thanks for any help.

    I just did mine, they gave me a hard time because Im not the original owner of the device. I simply stayed firm and kept telling them that I did not purchase the device from Verizon but a friend of mine did, and I have it on the Verizon network, they game me a NO, I asked for a supervisor, 2 minutes later I had my code. lol, Thanks guys!

    Just got my storm unlocked. If I do a OS upgrade does this have any affect on the storm being unlocked? Will I have to get it unlocked again? I dont believe so, just want conformation.

    I don't think so. Once unlocked, unlocked for life.
