    Unlock 8330 from US Cellular

    Can anyone direct me in how I would go about unlocking my old US Cellular 8330. I recently switched to verizon and now have a 9530. I went to horizon.com but didn't see any unlock services for US Cellular. I would like my wife to use this phone as she also has the 9530 and doesn't like the touch screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can't unlock an 8330. I would look into selling it or trading it for one that will work for your carrier.

    The Curve 8330 for US Cellular is CDMA. You might be able to flash it with VZW software and whatnot (I know very little about this). "Unlocking" is only for GSM phones (ones that have SIM cards). It is also possible to unlock a Storm because though it is CDMA it has a SIM card spot and GSM capabilities. Like randycowboy said, you should probably just sell it and buy a VZW Curve. Hope this helps.
