    Well the other benefit would be if you don't have good coverage with vzw in your area you will be access AT&T and TMO's GSM network.

They will then issue you a unlock code and you'll be good to go.
    Thanks Levy, Is there any other way to do this as the phone is currently on my brothers account?

    I would just have your brother call and do it. The other option is to have a 3rd party unlock your phone. They will charge you though. Click the Horizon ad banner at the very bottom of this page to check on prices.

    As Nate stated Jerde without your brother's consent you will need a third pary company to perform the task and they will charge for it. With vzw its free.

    So I got a unlock code, thanks guys!

    But I'm missing something. Here is the directions that they gave me...

    • Provide customer with steps to unlock the SIM: below
    • Ensure SIM card is inserted correctly.
    • From main screen, select Manage Connections icon. Select “Turn All Connections Off.”
    • Return to main screen, select Options > Advanced Options > SIM Card.
    • Type 'MEPD' (letters will not appear on-screen but a menu will pop up).
    • Type 'MEP2' (user will be prompted to enter MEP code)
    • Enter the unlock code (from Guarded Link), then tap Return key on the screen. Confirmation received.
    • Reboot device
    • From main screen, select Manage Connections and then “Restore Connections.”
    Device is now unlocked.


    When it gets to the step "enter MEP code" I don't know what that is. I think it is a 10 digit code. Any ideas? Once I get past that all I have to do is enter the code they gave me.

    Ok, got it, thanks!

    I got confused because when entering the code it said "10 left" and the code they gave me was like 15 digits long.

    any time, to make sure is unlocked go to options, advanced options, sim card, type mepd and it should read disabled on each line
