    I've been trying to sell my phone but had little success since many people want to flash it to Cricket. How can I unlock this phone if its a CDMA phone.

    Unfortunately, "unlocking" a CDMA phone doesn't have quite the same effect as with GSM phones. CDMA carriers use the ESN (electronic serial number) as the identifier on their network, and as a result, the larger ones are fairly restrictive about allowing phones other than what they sell.

    Besides, Verizon puts so much crap on their phones, it can keep it from working properly on a different network. This is where flashing a phone comes in, unfortunately you have to know what you're doing or you can kill the phone.

    Wish I had better info for you, but this is the lament of CDMA technology.
