Default BOLD Unlocking Question

Please Login to Remove!

A) How do you Unlock a BOLD? Will AT&T provide Unlock Code?
B) If I manage to Unlock one; Can I use it on VZW Network?

If you're feeling generous and want to send me the unlock code via PM, I won't tell.....

A) If you are a customer in good standing, try calling customer support. Generally they provide the unlocking code free; if not, a reputable dealer such as Horizon Wireless is a good choice.

Also, unlock codes are specific to your device. There is not a shared code that can be PMed to you.

B) No - the Bold is a GSM only device, and Verizon is a CDMA carrier. They are incompatible.

You will not be able to use it with VZW 2 different networks.
