No.

Just call Verizon and get the unlock code for free.

hahahahahaha, you're funny.

Sprint won't allow any device on their network other than their own.

good luck.

You don't need to unlock it. You need the MSL number and you can get that by dialing ##000000. You will need to give that number to Cricket or MetroPCS as they generally allow other CDMA devices on their networks. However, I don't believe they offer BlackBerry service.

Good luck trying to get free service.

Unlocking it? It's not a GSM device. It doesn't have a subsidy lock.
