    Only GSM carriers (AT&T, TMO) are able to unlock phones using the sim card. CDMA carriers (VZW, Sprint, Alltel) do not have this ability.

    With CDMA phones (like Verizon)...it works a bit different. When the phone is deactivated correctly, it can be reactivated with a simple call to VZW. If the phone is stolen or lost, it will be noted and the phone cannot be activated. Make sure you check that the ESN is clean (that's the term) and the PIN is released from the previous owner.

    EDIT: I see with you're with T-Mobile. A phone from VZW will NOT work with them. VZW uses CDMA and T-Mobile GSM.

    A) You just responded to a post that was over 14 months old

    B) You're off topic, too.

    C) You're using a Bold - what are you doing in the VZW forums?

    D) Go to a GSM forum - AT&T would be fine.
