not going to work
Is it possible to unlock this phone for usage in Canada? It has a removable SIM card, but I tried just putting in my other SIM card and it said it wasn't an au-card. I know it can be unlocked in the US, if that changes things? Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

AU cards are like RIM cards and are rather different than SIM cards but physically look alike
It's all good (^_^)

Everyone's on their own for hypersims. I'm out har har har har har~~~~
Not happening. They're completely different and it won't even unlock in the US either. If you like the look then all you can do is sell off this one and get the SH9110C instead when it comes out, which has plain ol' GSM.
nodnod, people are selling the sh9110c in my country already.
The only way to define your limits is by going beyond them.
The moment you fear. You are nothing.

Yeah, but is it even selling in China yet?

and yeah, it's a CDMA phone so it's physically incompatible with other carriers. Something about it not working with VZW and Telus since the uplink and downlink bands are swapped or sth.

No, this model has "new" (AKA normal) CDMA. What it doesn't have is support for old-style CDMA activation (no card).Originally Posted by yamanote

Do the new CDMA au phones still require the phone number and stuff to be 'burnt' into the phone?
As far as I can tell, no. Everything's on the card, but then they lock the card to the phone so it might as well be old-style.
And even if it supported old-style CDMA activation there's the issue of the phone not having a standard ESN (I remember being told that a standard ESN is generated by the carrier when roaming on Global Passport phones, though why 110 will continue working in China on de-activated Global Passport phones is beyond me). Thus, it will not roam even if it has support for the "new" CDMA.
Speaking of au phones roaming... I went to sin dat yesterday and saw this old AU by KDDI Sanyo phone advertised as unlocked and able to type Chinese (I think). I might be going back to buy a BB Storm soon so I'll try to take a picture...
I might have an explanation for that- Sanyo used to produce CDMA phones for mainland China. There's one that matches a KDDI model. But is cross-flashing possible? Who knows what's the story behind this one. Do take a picture.
I wonder if you can figure it out... it was in blue (has another color too), a WIN badge on the top casing- it's a flip phone, slightly chubby, SANYO on the inside bottom (near the microphone) and the name ended with a II. Do you know what the Chinese Sanyo's name it? Perhaps it's that one...Originally Posted by yangj08
