    Unless you can get the "service provider code", you will not be able to use your handset on any other carrier EXCEPT the one you activated your handset with. Technically, it supports the same technology, I suppose it is CDMA here, however, your handset, most likely with the service provider lock enabled, means it is so to speak, STUCK or LOCKED onto your current carrier. If you find a way to retrieve the service provider code, you "may" have a shot at activating it on another carrier. You should verify your ESN number on the handset with the carrier you'd like to switch to to make sure they will activate it for you even if your handset is "unlocked".
