    Hi,

    I just spent way too long on the phone with Sprint and I tried to look this up in the forums, but I'm still not clear on the issue. I've got a Sprint Bold 9650 and I know it is unlocked for international SIMs/carriers, but I would like to know how to unlock it for AT&T/T-Mobile, or is that even possible? Thanks!

    If it's already unlocked, it can work on AT&T or T-mobile (only on EDGE though), but you'd have to manually load the service books for both carriers (guides are found in the forums here, look under Storm 1 forum, steps apply for 9650 as well).

    Thanks for the reply. When I was speaking with the Sprint rep in the International department, they said that if I insert a SIM from AT&T/T-Mobile, it simply wouldn't work (phone, SMS, data). Are you saying this isn't true? Thanks again.

    It is not true at all, it will work, the Sprint rep is either:

    1. Misinformed

    2. Trying to get you to not switch carriers.....

    IT will work, the device is supporting GSM, it's just the bands used by GSM carrier in the USA and worldwide are different.
