    Using Samsung Galaxy Note on Verizon

    Hi,

    I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a Samsung Galaxy Note. I would like to know if there is a way to unlock it so I can use it on the Verizon network?

    Thanks

    It's not a question of unlocking the phone, it's an issue of how it was constructed. The Note is a GSM device, designed to run on GSM phone systems (the majority of the world uses GSM), like AT&T and T-Mobile have in the U.S. and utilize a sim card, which contains the information to run on the network. OTOH, Verizon is a CDMA Network and uses entirely different technology for it's network. See the link below for more details.

    GSM Vs CDMA

    I'm not a technician, but I seriously doubt that you can take a phone built for a GSM network and run it on Verizon. Sorry!

    I agree, the first thing you have to look at is if it is compatible.

    Just for kicks I put my Sim card from my Droid Charge (Verizon) into my Samsung Note and got the message: Enter Network Lock Control Key then I have 2 choices: unlock or dismiss

    (Shrug) As I said, I'm not a tech. Go ahead and try entering an unlock code. You can get them online from a number of companies.

    If I were you, I'd first make sure that the phone will work on Verizon's CDMA setup, before spending any more money on it. If you have a GSM phone, there is no way to get it to run on as a CDMA device.
