Unlocking a cellphone has become increasingly easy over the last few years. This is guide on how to unlock your Sprint Cellphone to any GSM network.

As you haven’t stipulated what make and model phone you have I have used the popular Blackberry 9650 as an example, although this guide will apply to most phones. Menus will appear the same, albeit with slight variations in the terminology used.

Phones will often be bought locked to a certain carrier or network so you cannot switch simcards using the same phone. In order to unlock your mobile phone to any GSM network you will require a remote unlock code. You can get an unlock code from an internet dealer, but be aware that you will have to pay for this service.

In order to unlock your phone, you will require your IMEI number. You can find this by pressing *#06# on your phone as if you are making phone call. Your IMEI number is always 15-17 digits long.

Once you obtain your unlock code from your chosen vendor, simply follow the instructions below and your phone will be free to use on any GSM network.

Note: NO SIM CARD is needed to unlock the phone. When your phone is unlocked remove the battery and insert the SIM, as desired; then re-insert the battery. Your phone MUST be restarted in order to activate the new SIM card.

Follow these directions carefully and your cell should become unlocked.

1) Power on
2) Go to Settings
3) Go to Options
4) Go to Advanced Options
5) Go to Sim Card
6) HOLD ALT and press: Mep2 (Please note that you will NOT see what you type on the screen) *
7) It will ask you for the unlock code. Enter it and then press trackball to confirm and your phone is unlocked.

Sprint does not use the older GSM, they use the newer technology, CDMA/TDMA, this will not work on older GSM networks, such as AT&T and TMOBIL are still using, so the best thing is to buy an unlocked GSM cell phone and get a sim card for each country your in and use it for a cheaper price by far.
