As it have been told before, BAD ESN phones won't unlock with these codes. Verizon changes codes for this type of phones and we should use Turbo SIM!!!

This is clearly wrong.

Whether the phone is blacklisted by Verizon or not does not affect the SIM lock codes. Many “bad ESN”-tagged phones were successfully unlocked with codes purchased from online sellers.

@Gasi Yuno..

So, what is the reason why some of them can be unlocked and some of them can not!!!

Some of them had their codes altered, that's all. VZW cannot magically alter the unlock code on a phone that doesn't have internet access. Now, if you bought the D2G and instead of unlocking it first decided to set up WiFi, you obviously can get those codes changed accidentally if it's really done OTA.

I somehow doubt it, though, and I think the codes are just wrong. I.e. the phone had some other code flashed into it at the factory, not the one that is in the database.

There's no reliable way to confirm that VZW changes the codes OTA, is there?

A Motorola staff said that to me. And I think it is true. It relates to the state of the phone and the reason of BAD ESN. I think it might be changed when a phone is lost or stolen but would not change if it has unpaid bills. Only a guess.

Why not? There is no need to change the code inside the phone. It simply needs to change the code in VZW database WHEN IT MARKED AS BAD ESN. And when you purchase a unlock code, every body retrieves the changed code not actual one. Could it be like that????

The code sellers do not use VZW's actual database. They use leaked ones. That's #1.

#2, bad ESN means the ESN (MEID) which is the CDMA ID of the phone (like IMEI for GSM) is blacklisted in VZW's database and cannot be activated within their network.

Please do tell me how exactly can you change the code in a phone that is lying down in a box in, say, Poland with no WiFi set up and no CDMA networks around.

common unlockers only have access to Motorola DB.. they have no access to Verizon Database.. So.. Verizon change the codes!!!!!

---------- Post added at 02:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:01 PM ----------

i mean change the codes when the phone is given by Motorola. I actually doubt that the can change the codes OTA... It seems impossible!!!

I'm not insisting on that VZW changes codes in the phone. I said they might change codes in their DB. Consider this condition:

A phone is marked BAD ESN and not turned on on the network and somebody tries to UNLOCK it. And it will be successful. As I experienced with a BAD ESN one.

A phone is marked BAD ESN and accidentally turns on and tries to access VZW network (say on CDMA via USSD codes or WiFi) and a code is being sent to it to change UNLOCK CODE via a bootloader or ROM command. (There are many unlock methods for unlocking SAMSUNG devices via ROM). Furthermore, A Motorola staff told me VZW might change BAD ESN phones codes OTA! I experienced this condition too. And hope using Turbo SIM helps.

Yes. I've contacted 3 different code providers and they said that they are using Motorola DBs. Say Motorola DBs and VZW initial DBs.
