Hello everyone.

Does anybody knows if I can unlock my 9550 to be used in a GSM network and then go back to CDMA? or even use the phone in another CDMA carrier?

Most (if not all) CDMA carriers will only activate their own devices anyway.
I.e. Sprint won't activate a Verizon device and Verizon won't activate a Sprint device.

However, i believe that yes, you could switch verizon to GSM carrier, and then back to verizon.
