    Hi guys,

    I'm working on extending my free veer unlock to the pre3 (umts/4G as well as the vzw/world phone), and I need technically proficient people for testing. If you own a vzw pre3 and are comfortable with the command line interface, please drop me an email.

    I am relatively comfortable with CLI, and I have a VZW Pre 3. Let me know if I can help.

    I've put my unlock on my blog:

    Thanks to MadManMoon for all the testing!

    The VZW Pre3's have software limitations that render the GSM part inoperable when there is CDMA network reception.

    Version 1.4 can now unlock blocked Pre3 phones with the parameter "--writeBack".

    I am curious. If I buy an unlocked Pre 3 can I get it activated on Verizon? The Verizon Pre 3s are getting hard to come by and I want to buy a backup. Thanks for the help.

    The long answer is that Vzw is a CDMA operation... Yes, they do have a SIM slot, but that is meant for international travel. The Vzw Pre 3 is a CDMA World Phone.

    They simply would not be able to activate a GSM Pre 3 on Verizon as it is missing the CDMA radio.

    The real question is if it really doesn't have CDMA. There's one way to try but it's not for the faint hearted and might brick the GSM Pre 3 so I would do it only if it's not useable anymore. You could flash the CDMA modem firmware on a GSM Pre 3 to test.

    The reason why I'm saying this is because you can flash GSM modem firmware on a Verizon Pre 3. (I know this because I'm in GSM land and made the mistake of buying a useless CDMA Verizon Pre 3 and was able to flash the GSM modem firmware on it...) Might work the other way around as well, though not very likely.

    Would an unlocked Preł work on the Sprint network?
