    Read the sticky. I unlocked a few phones and it's real simple. I just can't memorize the steps.

    EDIT:

    Options - Advanced Options - Sim Card - type MEPD then MEP2

    and hey presto.
    Then just input the unlock code and then super presto!

    8330 is a cdma phone with no SIM card so unlocking is not possible. You need to buy a phone branded for the carrier you would like to activate it on.

    filipinoy973, did you even read the OP?

    As stated above, you can't unlock it. You can only use it on Alltel. If you need a phone for another CDMA carrier, you need to purchase a phone for that network.

    Haha oops. Just realized it. I feel almost as stupid as when I picked the remote to turn the volume down on my computer. But now that I know, I heard of some people who used sprint phones on verizon and such. I don't know if cdma phones are actually locked/programmed to a carrier but I read people who had it reprogrammed by the someone working for the carrier to work for that carrier.

    all of these posts saying you can't do it is not true. there is literally another post/thread of someone trying to unlock their alltel phone and there is steps on how to.
