    Here are the steps that she had me do:

    1. Turn off all of the wireless connections

    2. Go to Options

    3. Select Advanced Options

    4. Select SIM Card

    5. Hit menu select show keybord

    6. Enter mepd (you will not be able to see the typed info)

    7. Enter mep2

    8. Now it will say enter network mep code

    9. My code was 0294875417773351 (dont know if it will work for all phones)

    The data is working fine on a T-Mobile but the line has the blackberry data activated.

    I just got mine unlocked!!!

    I called 1-800-922-0204 and stated that I wanted to unlock my Storm. She didn't quite get what I was asking. When she did understand me she put me on hold for about 1 1/2 minutes and came back with someone from global support. The lady from GS emailed me the T and C's asked me if I agreed and of course I said yes.

    I then confirmed that the unlocking would not affect my current service with Verizon the GS lady asked me why I wanted to unlock the phone I told her I was going to travel aboard. She said ok it wouldn't affect my service and went on to say that some people just want their phones unlocked because someone tells them to do it. I laughed it off with her and proceeded to unlock the phone.

    Piece of cake!!!!

    BTW, the codes are phone specific!!!

    The unlocking everyone is discussing here has to do only with the SIM card, ergo only with GSM service. Sprint is a CDMA provider, so removing the SIM lock has nothing to do with Sprint.

    Now, CDMA handsets are also typically locked to their providers, but you never really hear about unlocking them. There was some talk about Sprint losing or settling a class action lawsuit a year ago and as a result unlocking its phones for use on VZW's network by reqest, but I don't know what's come of all that.

    is it a universial code? or is the code for each phone different?
    the codes are not universal.

    No, the device has to be active on an account in order to be unlocked. The unlock code is generated at the time of the request and is valid for a certain amount of time. The code is based on both the MEID and SIM Card number starting with 893

    would i be able to unlock a storm with a bad esn?
    someone left one in my store 2 weeks ago and its been sitting here ever since and no one has claimed it or anything.
    would i be able to get the unlock code and use it even though its claimed lost or whatever?

    Wrong. It's based exclusively on the ESN (MEID) and is good forever. The sooner we stop making this sound so complicated, the better equipped we will be to take back the complete ownership of our devices.
