    What's the difference between a "locked" or "unlocked" phone? I'm going to be selling my Pearl on Ebay (I just bought a Curve ) and I should probably know what that means before I list it. Thanks so much!

    Locked means it can only be used with the carrier it was purchased for, and unlocked means it can be used with any carrier that uses sim cards. So basically you can remove the sim from your phone and place into a unlocked phone and have service.

    Take note that your Pearl (Verizon CDMA) when sold, will only work on Verizon.

    So basically it's locked and should be listed as that.
