Sim card and Sim Unlocker?
 
well...when it comes to unlocking the phone....installing roms...etc, ive done that for a while now... however, im not too familiar with the sim card, unlocking the sim card, the benefits of unlocking it, etc.

The sim card unlock, just unlocks the sim for US carrier use. (T-mobile, AT&T). It also allows you to change radios. I put a thread out about it to not to long ago. Tried searching for it, but couldn't find it.

A stock CDMA carrier TP2 has GSM capabilities, but the carrier's original intent was for it to be used for International GSM use only. By SIM unlocking you can pick up a GSM SIM card from any N/A GSM carrier, pop it in, and use that carrier's GSM network.

Is it necessary to unlock the SIM? If I am with Sprint and dont plan on using it on a GSM network do I need to bother if I wanna used a different rom?

No Sim Unlocker is only for using other SIM cards in your sprint phone inside of the USA. You will still be able to use another Sim outside the country with no alterations to your phone. You only need to use the hspl unlocker is you want to change ROMS. And you will need the Patched Radio "located in other threads" if you choose to unlock you Sprint SIM.

Thanks. That is what I was thinking and hoping.

Ive gotten conflicting answers on this, now that the dust has settled, maybe someone would know now. Is it possible to use both the GSM and CDMA at the same time if I get it unlocked?
