    I have an Alltel Motorola RAZR V3a. I would like to have it unlocked, but there is not a number underneath the battery that says IMEI. Which one is it? Also, where I live now, Alltel has been taken over by Verizon. I don't have service, and I'd like to change my phone over to Straight Talk. They use the RAZR, too. Can anyone help me???

    Hello, the Alltel RAZR V3a is a CDMA phone and as such it cannot be unlocked or used with another provider.

    Even though Straight Talk uses the RAZR V3a, it has it's own firmware in it. Sorry but you will need to get a phone from Straight Talk.

    The number under the battery that proves the phone's individuality to a CDMA service provider is the ESN, Electronic Serial Number.

    It would be worth asking at the Verizon (former Alltel) store if your phone could be returned to service.
