I thought about doing that, just because. I just didn't know what country to use as an excuse. I might pick one with extradition laws.
[QUOTE=Stiefler07;43749]did i lose you?
ha ha........you lost me at hello..........
I have mine unlocked so I can use a country specific SIM when I travel to Asia and the Caribbean. When I called for the unlock code and procedure I explained I needed a local # when traveling overseas, my vendor wouldn't call me on my US #from China only to tell me his car would pick me up in 10. It would cost him $10.00. No problem, they understood perfectly.
I'm one of those people who bought a Storm to use on another carrier because I liked the phone and what it could do. But the main reason that I did is that I have a fantastic rate plan that I do not want to give up. So in order to keep the rate plan, I buy phones off of ebay. Would most people do this, no, but I did it to save money on the phone bill while still getting a great phone.
The sim card is actually what locks the Storm to VZW. All I had to do was take out the sim card and go into the CDMA programming mode and change the info to Alltel's information. I was surprised how easy it was and it worked great on Alltel.
