Sprint BB 9650 unlocked out of box!?
« on: August 28, 2010, 11:07:23 PM »
I've been reading about this, anyone know firsthand if it would work on verizon without any other unlocking? (I tried an AT&T SIM card and it worked).

I called vz today and asked if they would activate for a new account and the answer was no. (they have esn database from what I've read, and it could be added if they really want)

Not true because verizon can program phones OTA. Know this from experience (I've flashed phones to verizon)
