+ - Departing Sprint users to be allowed to unlock->

Submitted by

blenderking writes ""As part of a proposed class-action settlement, the Reston, Va.-based provider, with operational headquarters in Overland Park, Kan., has agreed to provide departing Sprint PCS customers with the code necessary to unlock their phones' software." This doesn't pertain to Nextel users nor allow Sprint users to switch to GSM networks of course. For United States customers, this could allow switching to Verizon or Alltel, both CDMA providers. Sprint will also "add information about the locking software and how to obtain the unlocking codes in the list of terms and conditions of service given to new customers, and instruct its customer service representatives on how to connect a non-Sprint phone to the Sprint network." SImilarly, Apple and AT&T are facing similar lawsuits...."
