    I have a 8330 that I want to use on Verizon that is now locked to US cellular and i have a Sprint 8330 as well. Neither phone has the imei number listed on the sticker on the back and neither phone appears to have a sim card. I have run into dead ends trying to get the info so I can get either of these unlocked. Which phone would work with Verison and how do I get the correct info so I can get an unlock Code?
    Thanks

    The 8330 is a CDMA device.
    US Cellular, Sprint and Verizon are all CDMA.
    You can't unlock CDMA devices, because they have no SIM cards.
    You can flash them, but I don't think any carriers allow that anymore.

    You should just sell your extra 8330's, if they're in good condition, and purchase a Verizon branded Bold 9650 or Curve 3G.

    Thanks for the bad news. That was a consideration just sell them and buy a Verizon phone.
    Thanks

    I think only boost allows flashed phones. I think that's it.
