    "Unlocking" is a GSM concept. It is what allows a phone to accept an arbitrary SIM card. CDMA phones do not have SIM cards (OK, LTE devices do); their "identity" is hard-wired with an ESN or MEID. And most CDMA providers (the big ones like VZW, anyway) won't accept phones unless their ESN/MEID is in their database. And changing the ESN/MEID of a phone is illegal (and a forbidden topic on this forum). This makes it essentially impossible to "import" a phone to such carriers, at least legally.

    Verizon doesn't "lock" their phones. The password or SPC/MSL to get into the carrier programming menus is always simply "000000".
