    Hello I'm sure this question has been asked and answered many times. Unfortunately I could not fined it, so I am asking again. Can the LG Esteem be unlocked to work in Europe? I am moving to Warsaw, Poland in a few days and do want to get a new phone. I have had the LG Esteem since December 2011. I love this phone, so much so when my first one was stolen I purchased a new one and had to be reimbursed by the insurance company since they would only replace it with the New LG Connect (Esteems no long in production :mad:). Even though the Connect has a dual core process, gorilla glass, and something else I could have cared less about. It did not have the HDMI connection or a 4.3 screen (that .3 really does make a difference...LOL). I said all that to say, I really love this phone and would love it if I could get it to work while I was in Poland.

    Europe cell companies use GSM "service" (IE have a SIM card) the Esteem is a CDMA phone. Also alot of GSM phones that are made for the US dont work in Europe due to different radio frequencies.
