    I read in another thread that yes. Unlocking goes through os upgrade and even wipes.

    Pretty sure you can't since Boost Mobile uses an iDEN network. I don't think the Storm has the ability to use that network.

    Yes, when a phone is unlocked it will be unlocked forever. And you are correct that unlocking a phone gives it more value on ebay. From what I have seen and the phones that I have sold it added at least 50.00 to the end price. Lastly, if you could hold off on selling your Storm 1 for a few weeks to give me a better chance of selling mine.

    Inquiring minds want to know.
    Ok so "WHY Unlock the Storm".

    Because people want to be different. So in my business we do unlock the Storm. We unlock about 4 to 6 a week. We also load the correct files to make it work on the correct gsm system. Meaning the Berry Msgr, GPS, and other blackberry specific progams work. Oh and the pix/vid/txt work.....Oh It also make calls. :arms:

    You are quite correct, it is impossible. In looking around online it has been tried with an unlocked Storm and and Unlocked/Jailbroking Iphone and neither would pick up the signal due to the incompatible networks, (GSM vs IDEN/CDMA).

    Welcome to BBOS, and I agree there is a market for it. And people just don't like locked when they can be unlocked.
