> In reply to janith @ 2014-03-23 04:32 from PWDw - click to readCDMA restricts phone to verizon or sprint networks or a MVNO that uses the CDMA networks.

You can only buy a 4G LTE SIM for Verizon or Sprint for this phone otherwise no SIM card is used or needed and you will be automatically on the 3G network.

Unlock a phone following YouTube video or pay a local reputable cell phone repair shop to handle it.
If you have a Sprint phone & want Verizon THEN IF same phone is being used by Verizon sometimes you can find a bored Verizon tech to unlock and/ or flash a 3G phone so it will also work on 4G LTE network with a Verizon SIM.

CDMA which work for Verizon and Sprint I believe

or

GSM which work for T-Mobile, AT&T and internationally.

First you need to buy the phone for the network you need.
Most T-Mobile/ AT&T phones work on each others network w/o any issues just get the network SIM card and do a scan for the correct network. My friend's phone finds AT&T & T-Mobile networks so she bought an AT&T SIM card and switch to AT&T GO plan from T-Mobile w/o any issues b/c T-Mobile in the Bay Area really sucks for coverage---even inside T-Mobile stores she wasn't getting consistent coverage & they blamed her phone yet she has had zero issues with it on AT&T.

Second look up your phone on youtube and it will show you how to unlock for free so you can travel with it outside US.

Otherwise you get a CDMA phone for Verizon or Sprint and again go to youtube to unlock it.

This phone worked well (1.5 yrs) until I updated it through vzw.
After that, nothing but problems. Battery life plummeted, freezes and now I get the following msg: "Activating your phone. Please wait until this process your phone...This process may take up to 2 minutes" Not true, msg is on all day long (I ignore and use it anyway.). Support had me replace the sim card. Ok for less than a week then problem returned.
When it worked, I thought this would be my last phone ever. Now convinced the life span is connected to contract (Conspiracy?).

this is ma 3rd android fone i ever had.
even not available on Indonesia, but im really satisfied with this fone capability(kickstand,front camera, dual flash), this fone so unique and blazing fast operational.

physically would none of present era fone have such feature.

other which mention lag,freeze,restart,error must be poisoned by ads and malware(donwload frm untrusted source), and have very low android knowledge, or bang the fone oftenly lol.

battrey will stay 2 days with normal operation(mobile data used properly), 18 hours if keep online, and 5 hours if non stop online and screen never turn off with 50% brightness.

suggested ROM :
1.Airborne frm infected forum
2.SoaB frm xda forum
3.Infected eternity frm infected forum
4.NuSenseX frm infected forum (if you interested with ICS stuff)
