When a phone is locked into a service provider but you want to change to another service provider , the lock is a contract that you sue only that provider
to get it unlocked , normally requires a payout fee of the contract to the original provider
contact them direct and discuss what can be done

Sprint phones

  • CDMA carrier
  • Uses 800MHz and 1900MHz spectrums primarily (bands 26 and 25), and 2.5 GHz for Sprint Spark (band 41)
  • Does allow devices to be used on selected Sprint resellers such as Ting
  • Phones will not work with Verizon
  • LTE devices and iPhones may work with GSM networks, although service possibly limited
  • Still not an 'unlock friendly' carrier
Sprint has recently launched a 'Bring Your Own Device' campaign for selected MVNOs (smaller wireless providers who operate on its network).
This means that some (not all) Sprint devices will be able to be used on either Ting or Boost Mobile (unfortunately, Sprint's prepaid MVNO, Virgin Mobile, doesn't accept phones from any other carrier - you'll have to buy a Virgin Mobile handset to sign up for service).
Outside of carriers on the Sprint network, taking your Sprint phone to Verizon Wireless is more or less impossible. We've heard of people trying, but so far no success stories.
If you wish to take a Sprint device to T-Mobile or AT&T, you may be able to do so with LTE-capable devices and Apple iPhones...but there are no guarantees. Some handsets sold by Sprint are marked as 'global' phones, meaning they are also have room for a SIM card despite running on Sprint's CDMA network.
As confusing as it is, if you can get your Sprint phone unlocked, there is a chance you can have it activated for service on a GSM network - but you'll need to speak with your new carrier and ask whether they'll accept the make and model of your handset.
Even if you do get the all-clear, getting your phone unlocked is the tricky part. While Sprint are happy to unlock phones for international use (provided the device is paid off and the customer's account is in good standing), the company isn't as enthusiastic about unlocking devices when customers wish to take them to another carrier. There's more info about the unlocking process - and what a headache it can be - here.
And if you do manage to get your Sprint phone unlocked and find a carrier that agrees to let you bring it on to their network, it's unlikely that the phone will work in quite the same way as it did on Sprint, due to the differences in carrier networks we've discussed above.

Hi' what is carrier and how can i ring them??


hello lilianritchi,
a carrier is your service provider for mobile phones (examples are virgin mobile, at&t, t mobile, verizon, sprint, cricket, etisalat and etc...) if you don't know your provider/carrier, you can find out by looking at the screen of your phone, the name of the provider is either at the center of the screen, at the top left or right near the notifications tool bar, at the bottom (depending on your settings)
once you already know your carrier, here are your options on how to contact them:
1. if you have a sim card, the customer service number of your service provider is usually saved there and you call/dial that number using your handyphone or landline.
2. or here are some customer service numbers for you: at&t: 1-800-331-0500 or 611 from your wireless phone sprint: Call *2 (from your sprint mobile phone) or 888-211-4727 (Sprint phones) or 800-639-6111 (Nextel phones) t-mobile: Get in touch, free of charge: Just dial 611 from your T-Mobile phone or call 1-877-453-1304. Customer Care representatives are available from 3 a.m. to 10p.m. PT, daily. Automated account help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week virgin mobile: 1-888-322-1122 or 789 using your virgin wireless phone
if your carrier's number is not indicated on the list i provided above, inform me your carrier and i will look for their customer service number
thank you

Does anyone know the unlocking code for a virgin mobile vm 621i


Hi,

To unlock your mobile you need to get network unlock code(NUC) from current service provider via phone or go to service provider office.

While you get the Network unlock code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only.If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the network unlock code.

Thanx
