    Try this:

    Removing “Activation Required” on the screen:

    1. On the main screen of the phone, press ##000000
    2. For the Mobile Directory Number, put in your phone number in there.
    3. After you have done that, press the menu button to save the options and the phone will automatically restart

    Because it's sprint tour 9630 you will need to buy msl code. unlocker's here online can help you out with that.

    Correction: Not required to unlock it but to remove the "Activation Required" message. You can still use the phone with that message on.
