    4th Amendment defiled by Patriot Act

    I have a motorolla T8367 (talkabout) trimode phone that I bought about
    3 1/2 years ago, I haven't used it for about a year and a half now.
    Basically after my 2 year sprint contract was up, I jumped ship and
    went to verizon, bought a new phone, new number. the whole thing.

    Now the problem, My wife is on a different verizon plan, and she just
    managed to lose her phone, she's still on contact, and they want about
    $150 to replace the phone. I KNOW my T8367 can function quite nicely
    on the verizon network, but I need to get it unlocked so she can have
    it activated on the Verizon network and she can use it for her phone
    for the rest of her contract.

    How can I get the T8367 unlocked so my wife can use it with her
    verizon service?

    Please e-mail a reply

    Virtually impossible, since Sprint guards their locking codes like their
    virgin daughter. They know many of their subscribers would move to VZW if
    they could unlock Sprint's more desirable phones.

    If you know someone in Sprint's tech dept you could get lucky though.

    Not impossible at all. In fact he's got it activated on Verizon Wireless
    this very moment.

    What does it say about the relative customer friendliness of the two
    companies then?

    SprintPCS phones are activated on Verizon.

    Verizon phones are not activated on SprintPCS.

    I didn't say impossible. I said virtually impossible. If the phone is
    locked by Sprint it is virtually impossible to get the unlock code from them
    so you can unlock the phone for use on the VZW network.

    There are ways do do this by sneaky methods, but for the average person it's
    not achievable.

    What customer friendliness? VZW has been dropping Sprint as a roaming
    partner every where thay can across the country for months now.
