8703e from Sprint will work only on Sprint. they are not required to unlock it yet, nor is any other carrier required to allow it on their network. they are CDMA and do not work on GSM. welcome to the forums

Its the nature of CDMA, they are not required to unlock it. (in the US) and China Unicom is not required to allow it.

You cannot use the Sprint 8703e on another carrier's network.

Loading a different carrier's OS on the device will not make it run on the other carrier's network.

CDMA devices only work on their 'home' carrier's network.

wow there has been a rash of these threads lately

Lets break it down for them
Sprint = Sprint network only allows sprint phones

Verizon= Verizon only allows Verizon phones

You can not use either OS on another Carriers phone to make it work on the other network. It doesnt work that way.

An 8703e is a Sprint device, and cannot be unlocked at all to use on any other carrier network.

I feel like I'm repeating myself.
