Can the Droid Incredible be unlocked for ATT?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've read that they can't since they dont share something, but I also read you can unlock them and use att. I also read that you will only be able to get to use ATT if you ship one from overseas.

i dont think you can, since they use 2 different "things" i think sprint/verizon use MCNA or something like that and att and tmobile use something totally different.

get an iphone?

I think as long as it has a sim card you should be able to.
Not that i know it has one or not, just saying for att/tmobile they need sim card phones.

ATT is GMS based and Verizon is CDMA based. Unless the phone is equiped wth a SIM card slot it will not work, the Incredible is not.

no you cant...droid is a cdma lock to verizon only...if it was gsm...then you can unlock and use it for any carrier. when 4g comes out..everything will be on gsm...there wont be anymore cdma... so all phones could be unlock for anything.

Not true, you can use it with sprint since sprint also uses cdma.

Um....do you have any idea what 4G is?

As far as using the Incredible for ATT, this is impossible because the Incredible is a CDMA device, as previously noted.
