    Unlock as in for a different carrier? Can't be done. Only GSM (SIM) phones can do that, Droid is CDMA and only works on Verizon.

    I wonder if the websites are confusing unlocking with rooting.. What carrier do you want to run a Droid on? There is a GSM version, called the Milestone..

    I think those websites are actually offering to unlock your bank account. :)

    Those sites aren't very reliable, but regardless you CAN NOT unlock a CDMA phone for use on another carrier. It doesn't use a SIM card like AT&T/T-Mobile phones, the only carrier it would *work* on is Sprint. BUT Sprint only allows phones it has approved to be used register on it's network. I know Cricket allows unapproved CDMA's on it's network, but you don't use a code to unlock a CDMA phone. You need a certain program to hack it, and the Droid isn't supported by that program.

    I have friends coming up to me all day long swearing they can easily switch their Droid to T-Mobile, AT&T, and just about any other carrier you can think of. There is no way to convince them that it is not going to happen. So far, no one has come back with their new T-Mobilized Droid. I am still waiting :cool:

    thanks your information seems to be very accurate today a web site that assured me they could unlock it just refunded me the money they charged me to perfom the job.

    It's slow. It's ugly. It has Blur. It's on T-Mobile.

    I'm not a tween, I don't want a Cliq.

    They might be able to "unlock it" whatever they are making that out to be but you still cant put a sim card in it which makes it useless for tmobile. Now if you get a Telus milestone (If they are out yet not sure) and find a way to get that unlocked you could use it on ATT.

    I had att for 4 years and I hate it their customer service and provider are very lame same goes for sprint/nextel verizon seems ok but they are charging lots of money for what Tmobile offers so I bought the motorola droid (verizon) without a contract but was really looking forward to unlock it to switch it over to tmobile :(

    If you only bought your Droid to switch it to t-mobile, you probably should've done some research ahead of time...

    It could be impossible but I still can sell it for whatever I paid for it it's not under contract so at least I'll get the money back.
