    I ordered and received my DROID 3 about a month ago but after a number of unsuccessful attempts I still can't unlock it(((
    I hope someone can advice me what to do with my problem. Since I received my phone I ordered unlock codes from two different "unlock code providers" - they [codes] were exactly the same but for some reason neither of them work. Now I can't even use Verizon sim card that was in the box with the phone because it asks for a code every time I turn on the phone (no matter which sim card is inside). The result is always the same - it ends up with a message "Your phone subsidy locked. Please contact your Network Provider".
    Did anyone face the same issues? And could the reason be that I used too much attempts to enter the code?

    Thank you in advance.

    The wife walked into a shop over there. Bought a prepaid Sim...activated it. Dropped it in the phone and called me. Worked perfectly and if she can do it...than anyone can do it.

    Once the phone is unlocked, then (usually!) no problem. The trick is getting the phone unlocked if you are not a Verizon customer (or you fail to meet their requirements)

    Same problem here.
    Even worst it seems that verizon changed the codes for newer phones. I am in colombia just waiting have tried like 5 different services and nothing works.

    Hello! Well, same thing here, I was testing with a couple of codes that I bought from an ebay seller, but in the process the Phone was locked deep in "Dismiss Mode" so seems until no new info, that there is no available the "Network unlock code" prompt screen option.

    So, please some help, since thsi seems like an issue in rising over the phones already on available.

    Thanks for attention and best regards.

    I was given a code from verizon and 2 from internet but none of them work. I flashed my phone and rooted but no work. And when I try to change the radio band the only one available is 800 USA perhaps that is not working properly. Please help since right now I am only using the phone for wifi. Also I am outside of the US.

    Is there any other way to sim unlock this phone like flashing with a motorola softaware or other company. I was serching and found flash to cricket but it was too complicated for me. Perhaps one with the RSD lite.
