    Question *Unlocking question* Switch AT&T pearl over to Verizon?

    Advertisement



    Hi to those who can help...

    I am currently with AT&T and have a brand new red pearl in the box (yes, the phone says AT&T on it) that I would like to give to a friend for her birthday. The problem is she is with Verizon and doesn't want to cancel her contract.

    Is it at all possible to unlock my AT&T pearl so that it would work with Verizon? If so how would something like that be accomplished?

    Thanks again to those who can help...

    Yeah unfortunately that is the case. Unlocking is great and ATT will do it for no charge on the phone, but unless your friend switches to ATT/T-Mob it won't work for her.

    If you need help with unlocking, try this thread:

    Hope this helps . . .

    Hey give verizon a call. They do provide sim cards on some of their phone models. The pearl could be one of them. Hey; it won't kill to give them a call.

    That is cool getting her that phone, she will enjoy it.

    The sim cards they provide are for Overseas use only. Their world phones are specifically designed not to operate on GSM networks used domestically.
