Is there a Way to make the VX6700 work with

My daughter gave me a VX6700 supposed to be an old model so I read cause it came out in 2006
They sold it as an Unlock phone that you can use with any carrier, but it wasn’t like that it came in a Verizon box with the boot screen of sprint so my gees is that they already flash this with a ROM trying to unlock it and didn’t happened.

Ok the DATA of the phone is
Works with Windows Mobil 5.0 OS 5.1.195 Build 14847.2.0.0
Processor PXA270
ROM Version 2.06.00WWE
ROM Date 02/22/06
Radio Version 1.27.00
ESN
PRI version 1.18_003

My Question is there a way to unblock this or you can use a generic ROM and this will help?
I could find any guide about this phone in the site if there is one please let me know and I will search more carefully.

Thanks a lot for the help that you can give me

Found one Hope it helps some one else

now I'm sure it's an APACHE

Now after reading for more than a week

1.- I did try to flash it with the PDAJ Apache WM6.1 v2.02 without luck leaving the phone in Boot loader mode where you can read serial and V 2.0
2.- did connect the phone to the PC and you can read the connection USB in it then every time I try to flash it I get the error 150 this is not for this device or something like that
3.- After numerous attempts finally did flash it with the APA_VZW_20720_206_11000_WWE_Ship and in did it work
4.- at this time if you plug the phone to the PC you can see the main Disk (ROM I think) and the memory only so I keep trying to flash this with a generic one with the same results 150 error
5.- What I did was did change all the RUU the UI and the ROM Upgrade Ut with the nk.nbf of the generic from the APA_VZW_20720_206_11000_WWE_Ship to the generic and I have now the Generic one in the phone Windows Mobile 6 Professional CE OS 5.2.1620 Build 18125.0.4.2
ROM version 3.50.00 WWE radio 1.10.00 ExtROM version 2.07.206 WWE
6.- If I plug the phone I can see now the ROM the ext ROM 2 and the memory

My question how can you change this to be use it with another SIM (company) ?
Thanks

Re: Is there a Way to make the VX6700 work with

A friend told me this

There's no way you can make it work. If the phone doesn't have a sim card tray, it's a CDMA. Here's more info
so you can se the difference:

Hope this shed some light to you my friend!!

Thanks nsandymary

the phone does have a sim card tray
so it insn't a CDMA.

Thanks for the add info.

now Im' not sure

Removable User Identity Module (R-UIM) is a card developed for CDMA handsets that extends the GSM SIM card to CDMA phones and networks. To work in CDMA networks, the R-UIM contains an early version of the CSIM application. The card also contains SIM (GSM) application, so it can work on both networks. It is physically compatible with GSM SIMs and can fit into existing GSM phones as it is an extension of the GSM 11.11 standard [1].

This interface brings one of the main advantages of GSM to CDMA network phones. By having a removable identity card, CDMA users can change phones while keeping their phone numbers by simply swapping the cards. This simplifies many situations such as phone upgrades, phone replacements due to damage, or using the same phone on a different provider's CDMA network.

The R-UIM card has been superseded by CSIM on UICC. This technique allows all three applications (SIM, CSIM, and USIM) to coexist on a single smartcard, allowing the card to be used in virtually any phone worldwide that supports smart cards.

The CSIM application, a port of R-UIM functionality to the UICC, is defined in standard [2]

This form of card is widely used in China under the CDMA service of China Unicom (The CDMA service of China Unicom was acquired by China Telecom in 2002 . However, it is also used elsewhere such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan.

I can see in the phone that the DATA TRANSFER in all the ROMs that I can find is EVDO or 1X I can't find one with GSM with EDGE or 3G

Data transfer
CDMA: The best data transfer technology it has to offer is the EVDO technology, allowing for a maximum download speed of about 2mb/s (about 700kbps in practice), which is similar to what a DSL line has to offer. EVDO is not available everywhere yet and requires a cell phone that is EVDO ready.

GSM: Offers EDGE, allowing for a maximum download speed of 384kbps (around 140kbps in practice). More technologies are being developed on top of EDGE such as HSDPA to boost the transfer rate to over 384kbps in practice. This technology requires an EDGE-ready cell phone.

CDMA offers faster data download and would therefore be the favoured choice for data transfer. GSM is catching up fast however, but its EDGE technology

Question is there a way to make this work witha GSM SIM card?
is there a way to enable the quad-band cell phone (850/900/1800/1900 MHz).?

Okay, first things first... what are you trying to do with this Apache? Which carrier are you trying to use it on?

Re: Is there a Way to make the VX6700 work with

Thanks for your concern

I Live in El Paso TX just across the border from Juarez Mexico
Since most of the day I'm in Juarez I want to use this with Movistar or TELCEL (Mexico) I hate the roaming charges but they use the GSM 1900 MHz (Edge, 3G)

I know that you can get the R-UIM but I can't find this product and one of my questions will be are they Already program or do you have to do this? (with your operator data)

I’m really lost here I’m used to the MPX 200 to carry my work around (word, Excel) that’s why my daughter gave me this phone

Thanks again

Okay, that slot that looks like a SIM is actually a RUIM slot on your Apache. You cannot use an Apache on a GSM network. It looks like you may have to carry two phones if your heart is set on using the Apache in Juarez and El Paso.

Re: Is there a Way to make the VX6700 work with

GSM uses SIM, CDMA does not. Apache is CDMA. If you want a GSM PDA phone, get an AT&T and unlock it.
