    Hello all,

    I have a Samsung SCH-U740 phone, which not only works great but is perfect for me.
    I used to use Verizon, but I have cancelled my service.
    I like the Virgin Mobile paylo service and would like to use them as my carrier instead of Verizon.
    I want to use my old phone rather than buying a new one that I don't like to use as much.
    I have been trying to figure out how to do this for a week now. So far I have figured out (I think) that my phone is CDMA(cause it is Verizon) and so it is a lot harder than a GSM phone to unlock.
    I also tried in vain to get my IMEI number. It is not under my battery and it did not work when I tried to type in the *#06# code.
    I do not know what to do now, and I do not know if there is anything that I can do... please help :) oh and thank you for your time.

    Unfortunately this phone can't be 'unlocked'. The only way you'd get it to work on Virgin Mobile is if you were lucky enough to have someone at VM flash the phone and activate the phone's EIN on their network.

    unlocking your phone is your first step. You have to contact your phone supplier if they have the code to unlock your unit, or you may contact the phone manufacturer as how to flush the settings set the carrier, in this case, VZ.

    unlocked phones are also available in timtechs.com
