    Someone answered your question already in another thread. It sounds like your problem is not in the phone being locked/unlocked, but rather whoever owned the phone before you has either reported it lost, stolen, or didn't pay their Sprint bill, so the ESN is blacklisted and cannot be activated. Of course, the only way to find out for sure is to ask Sprint why they won't activate it, they should give you a reason.

    Re: Unlocking a CDMA Phone...

    Well i thought about that too..... before i found out about locked or unlocked phones. When i called sprint it sounded like the ESN number wasn't in their system at all. They kept on asking me if i was sure it wasn't a prepaid phone.... and made me repeat the ESN number like 10 times. I got my bother to talk to sprint and they told him i might have a virgin phone or something. Also when i got the phone it was brand new... everything still in plastic with no finger prints or anything, the phone was in perfect condition. It looks too new to be a used phone and If it was a used phone and was lost or stolen then i'm sure they would have told me that when i called.... "Sorry we can't activate this phone because it has been reported lost or stolen". A few years ago i had lost my phone and the sprint representative told me that when i tried to active a phone my brother had found. Also when i press *2 to activate it like the manual said it trys to connect me to Cricket. Its a sprint phone..... all i want it to do is connect to sprint. WTF

    Re: Unlocking a CDMA Phone...

    Folks, the first post in this thread answered your questions. The answer is not going to change just because you got new Comcast Digital Voice (haha, I love that commercial; 'Sorry Roger, you tiger now!'). The point is, if you have a CDMA service you better buy a phone with their logo on it. The CDMA providers WILL NOT activate a prepaid phone or a phone from a different provider, so please stop asking!!!

    If your question pertains to GSM phones, please find the appropriate forum for your provider from our main page... and then try our SEARCH feature to make sure someone else hasn't already asked (and answered) your same question.
