    Unlocking

    Advertisement



    I have a question i really want to get my hands on a storm and i am not sure what it means when looking at craigslist or even in the marketplace here or at cb when it says that a storm is unlocked. can anyone explain it to me in a little more depth. i have had the 8310 the 9000 on att and now the 8330 on verizon and never worried about unlocking a phone. i just know i want a storm that works on verizon perferabily on that is already verizon branded. any chance you guys could help me out on figuring this out?

    The Storm is a CDMA phone, BUT it has some GSM radios in it. If you get the Storm unlocked then it can be used on GSM networks like ATT & Tmobile. HOWEVER the Storm (and also the Storm2, Tour, 8830 & coming Tour2) does not have the correct frequency for 3G in the US (or Canada) so you would get Edge or below only on ATT or Tmobile. You could of course use the Storm on your Verizon account, BUT you must get a Verizon branded Storm, and unlocked, other branded Storm would NOT work on Verizon. Unlocking only applies to the GSM side of the phone.

    Is this true?

    Ok, thanks. What about the CDMA side? Can't that be unlocked too, or is that not required?

    For the CDMA, there is no unlocking necessary.
