You can only use CDMA in the US. You can unlock the SIM to work with different providers overseas. To use the Sprint TP2 you will have to add the ESN to the ESN library at VZW before the device can ever be used on the VZW network.

The thing is, the Verizon TP2 WILL work in the US once unlocked. So I'd assume the same goes with the Imagio, but I can't say for sure since nobody's confirmed it yet.

VZW hasn't finalized it's open-device strategy. This is evident in their device lineup choices and their recent developments with Google. Some other US based companies already have a open-device initiative while Verizon doesn't.

For example, a Verizon TP2 will work on Sprint. But a Sprint TP2 will not work on VZW until the open-device initiative has been finalized. And since the device is CDMA you will not be able to get the device to use GSM until you are out of the country.

Re: Sim unlocking for imagio

I convinced my Verizon Biz rep to give me the subsidy unlock code since I have over 80 active lines with Verizon and yes just like the VZW Tpro2 the Imagio works just fine with both AT&T & Tmobile so until the Tpro2 I have from Sprint is SPL'd I now at least have a hybrid CDMA/GSM device I just want my keyboard but this works for now its a decent handset unfortunately for me at least the Dutty Roms and the Energy Roms had this level of 6.5 integration and beyond 4 months ago so it leads me to ask what the Hell are these companies doing with the time and revenue they bring in
