Unlock Alltel/Vreizon Touch Pro to work in Nigeria?

I have a unique question that i was hoping someone could help me with. I wanted to give my old Touch Pro to my sister who is now living in Nigeria. She is here in the U.S. for a visit and her phone broke. She said that as long as it is unlocked, they should be able to use it in Nigeria with a per-paid service (most if the plans in Nigeria are pre-paid type plans).

I assumed it wouldn't work because i figured it would need to be GSM? Since i am not sure though, i figured i would ask. Also, if it would work, would i need to unlock the sim card as well? I know you can do that with the TP2, but i never looked into it on the TP.

The TP i wanted to give her is the Alltel version just before the merger (thank God - the verizon version was awful).

Can anyone give me any insight on this or point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

It won't work, the US and parts of Southern America are the only real areas that use CDMA.

If it were a CDMA/GSM capable phone then yes it would work, but standard Touch Pro's are only CDMA.

I think this is the information you need to see CDMA coverage in Nigeria.
