    I paid 90 bucks for this phone thinking that it can be unlocked and I cant find anyway to unlock it or anyone to unlock it. Is it 100% impossible to unlock this phone? Its on Cricket Service and I wanted to unlock it to work on Altell.

    I thought almost all cell phones could be unlocked.

    cdma phones can't be unlocked, there is nothing for the phone to accept for it to be locked in the first place. Your problem is getting your provider to accept the esn in its system and getting the phone programmed. Phones are made for a certain provider and the provider has the esn in a database saying it is a supported phone. The technology may be the same, but if you can't get someone from that company to change the esn for you, you're out of luck. Most of the time the system won't even accept the esn, so its not the rep you talk to, its the system.

    No they was going to do an ESN change but there is a damn Subsidy password there and I got past it but cant get past it again for some fucking reason.

    not for nothing, cut your losses and sell that phone. It is, without a doubt, one of the worst CDMA phones ever made. I've been a verizon agent for more than a year and I can tell you that without question, it's the worst phone vsw has supported in the past 2-3 years.

    I know that's not what your post is about, just wanted to give ya some more info...
