    To my knowledge, if you get a CDMA phone, you cannot unlock it, or put it on another CDMA provider.

    A CDMA phone generally will only work for the provider whose firmware it was in it. Even within the US a Verizon phone, does nork on Sprint etc.

    There is no such thing as unbranded or unlocked as in GSM, so as far as I know a CDMA phone from the US will not work in India's CDMA network.

    Hope this helps.

    Friend i made the same mistake bought a phone from us via ebay but when i got it. I realize that it is a cdma phone (sprint) and it cannot be un locked. when i check with reliance they offer that the can provide connection. So waiting for a positive reply. Please dont buy sprint phone from any where . Just a useless decision will be that
