    Locked really only applies to GSM phones. An unlocked GSM phone can be programmed on any GSM network. CDMA phones, which includes Sprint PCS and Verizon Wireless, generally can only be used on their own network. There are some who claim to be able to program a Sprint phone on Verizon, but it's a difficult, and potentially costly experiment if it doesn't work.

    Means you cannot use the phone with other carriers unless a special code is entered. Usually used with GSM, but I think it also applies to CDMA. I've heard before that they started doing this when it was so easy to steal a phone and just get it turned on somewhere else. But it also keeps the customer from moving.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Actually with Sprint there is what is known as a MSL (Master Subsidy Lock). If you had the unlock code from there, it is possible to take a SprintPCS Treo and activate it on the Verizon network. I wont go into how you get your MSL code, as that has been talked about ad-nausium on the board, and involves some good social engineering, which I neither condone or frown upon
