Luke, I hope you succeed since a singaporean by the name of benny_hk (seller of JPN and Korean phones) says he managed to unlock all 2g/3g/4gLTE bands on his. But the cost is too high.
Also, I can't find any rooting method for this.
But then again, I also couldn't find cwm for zte v969 on foreign sites but fellow filipinos managed to have cwm on their v969.

I wish sharp could make it into philippines. I dont have a phone rightnow and i think ill be waiting for it to come here. If sharp wont sell it to philippines.

I really WISH sharp will give us an UNLOCKED phone.

Softbank in Tokyo. I have a Japanese friend who purchased it by himself in Japan and will arrive in Philippines this week. As my previous post stated, I will make another comments once I have tested the device. As of the moment, I cannot tell yet if it can work to any location. But I'm sure it is a GSM device, because 305SH supports GSM that is only available in Japan. Thanks.
luke, 28 Dec 2014Mine is coming on 5th of January from Japan with white rom - meaning no sim lock, so I can use... moreHi. From where did you bought the device in Japan. I had searched in ebay.jp. But there all its mentioned the phone 305sh is locked and unable to unlock in japan. The user has to unlock the device oversea. Please comment or reply to me at email@example.com when u have the chance to get the device in hand. I am from India and very badly need this device. Trying every possible ways to get the model 305sh the GSM Version.
Sharp is missing a trick, Europe release please and watch how people flock to it in millions... one massive demand alot on of other companies dont seem to understand! Sharp has nailed it on design!
Mine is coming on 5th of January from Japan with white rom - meaning no sim lock, so I can use anywhere. Model number is 305SH from SoftBank which supports GSM. Ill post more comments once I've tested it my own. I'm from Philippines.
i want this gsm device in india.............i really like ever.design great.best of this year locks better than other
when in release in india.
It is fantastic phone. I want to buy Aquos Crystal 306SH.
I come from Serbia (Belgrade). Where I can buy this model
near Serbia, because in Serbia have not SHARP store.
My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
It does have a SIM card which means outside USA it can work on a GSM network right?
iqadi, 23 Nov 2014To users just a question.. It says no Edge and no Gprs on specs..so that means users cant u... moreGPRS and EDGE are type of connectivity both are slower compared to 3G GPRS being the slowest. Location Services pertain to GPS. The reason why this phone has no GPRS/EDGE is because it is a CDMA device as opposed to GSM.
i really like this devices but its CDMA not a GSM Devices
design 10/10 i want to buy this , When GSM ver. release
Slash-22, 13 Oct 2014Sharp has another aquos crystal model: sharp 305sh with GSM support.yeah and literally costs 4 times as much.look it up.not to mention you WILL NOT find it unlocked.it will be locked to a Japanese carrier.
I really like the phone, it is locked to "Sprint Prepaid" and I would really like to know how long I have to wait before Sprint Prepaid (no airtime purchased yet) allows me to use it elsewhere, like perhaps Page Plus?
This being my 9th Android phone or tablet & as an XDA Senior Member, I concur that may be the best $150 smartphone today with 2 exceptions: Boost Mobile failed to honor the "One Month of FREE service" offer I accepted on 10/14/2014 and Sharp has failed to provide ANY assistance to unlock the bootloader so that like 99.99999% of smartphones, we can have custom recovery and customer ROMS.
