    Sounds like you bought a phone that wasn't unlocked. Where did you buy this phone from?

    You need to contact VZW and ask them to unlock the phone. I had no trouble doing this on my account for all 3 D2G's I sold.

    Providing phone has a clean ESN you should have no issues.

    Wouldn't the person who originally bought them from verizon have to do that? Just playing devils advocate, but couldn't I steal a phone, and claim I bought it without it being unlocked, and get a free unlocked phone? I've never dealt with it, just trying to learn also.

    *side note, no one on this forum should ever offer help for payment. Not saying you were wrong to post that, just be wary of people offering help for money. Has scam written all over it. :p

    Verizon only provides the unlock code to their customers. They also have certain requirements (like clean billing history).

    iam really sorry for that money thing fellow members.....actually i bought it as is....it is currently locked to verizon....and the seller is saying that he never activated this phone with verizon...now i dont know that this is the actual problem or the 10 attempts to enter code have been completed or what but the phone is not getting unlcoked using the code i have received from 2 ebay sellers and one special unlocking site....
    what is the perfect method to reset that counter of unlock attempts...because when i received this phone there were no attempts left...so it might not be able to accept the code...

    I'm not understanding why you cannot call them. It might end up being an international call, but I suppose its worth the expense to get your phone figured out.

    As far as I know , at least this is how it was with T-Mobile the phone has to be connected to their network for the unlock code to work, so unless you have Verizon signal in India, you're out of luck.

    This is incorrect.

    The unlock code can be entered anytime, even outside of any coverage at all.

    If the phone informs you that you have used all attempts, leave it for a day or so. The timer will reset.

    As a general rule of thumb, a phone/phone number will need to be active on Verizon Wireless for at least 6 months with a good clean history of payments etc. Also, we don't unlock SIM cards to be used on another carrier.I don't think this will work for you since the phone was never activated before.You can reach out to our global services team collect to see if there are any other options for you. (908)559-4899I hope this information was helpful.^THVerizon Support
