    Your provider can provide them for free. Call customer care and they can do it. You can find some people online to get you one but it will cost money to do it. I just don't think a GSM network will be able to use it.

    If it is a Sprint 8830, it isn't that simple (CDMA devices aren't like GSM devices that you can just unlock them). You have to call sprint and they have to release your ESN from their network. Then you have Verizon add the esn to their network. (easier to just light up the device on Sprint).
    You can't move it to a US GSM carrier (AT&T, T-Mobile) - the 8830 GSM radio only supports the European frequencies.

    So there is no way I can use a Sprint 8830 WE on a US GSM Carrier?

    Nope, not possible. The GSM radio will only work in Europe.
