    I called and verified. the only warranty void is the SIM SLOT. if the SIM SLOT fails from the use of ANOTHER CARRIERS card you dont get a new phone

    I called yesterday to unlock my storm. The lady told me that I would have to agree to the terms which included voiding my warranty. I asked her again about that and she said that unlocking my sim slot will void the warranty on my storm. did you guys know this. So if my phone would to break down the road, then its on me. What the **** is that about?
    Anything they can do to discourage people form wanting to take their phone over to another carrier to be honest.

    does unlocking the phone have any negative negative about it... like possibly damaging my phone at any point or ruining it and requiring me to go and purchase another storm??

    At worst you would need to reload the firmware and do a firmware cold install

    I am able to buy an unlock code from Ebay, the guy had very good online feedback from the buyers and I see that he has unlocked many. I got mine in 15 hours. His ebay code is ''codevip'' item number 200291850298

    Hey, I got my unlock code from the same person as well! Paid for it on 12/24 and got the code on Christmas. Works perfect!

    It all depends on the person you talk to. I have heard it can be done, but I tried 4 times before I realized my mom was on Verizion. I had my mom add me as an account manager and then added the storm, called back in had it unlocked and then took the storm off the account. It's silly to have to go through that when I bought the phone free and clear. I mean I own the phone so give me the code.

    Hey, I just unlocked mine. I told them I was going to Montenegro. So, I wasn't sure if they were going to provide service.

    If you get a rep that won't budge or doesn't know anything just ask to be transferred to global services. Tell them you are traveling and you will be using another sim. They will give you the disclaimer about not being responsible about other networks and voila... but ask for GLOBAL SERVICES not the regular customer service call center rep.

    Just agree.. they won't really know. Not like they have a place to checkmark in their system that your warranty is void. It is just to discourage you, PERIOD.
    I have the insurance on it and pretty much debated with them on the insurance kicking in if anything should happen and they agreed with me. So even if your warranty is void, insurance will cover it. It is a 3rd party policy.

    Just got mine done. The tech gave me the speech about the 60 day policy (had mine for about 40), but let it slide when he checked my years with Verizon service. I have no plans on switching service, but do travel international often. Nice to be able to use a prepaid sim

    Called the number and spent 30 minutes with a rep who sounded very new and was trying to get me the unlock code. He couldn't figure it out and sent me to someone else who had it done in about 2 minutes.

    Tested it with a friends AT&T sim card, it works just fine.
