    Default Straighttalk

    I have a stock, locked rezound with the latest update from Verizon. I want to use this phone on straight talk since it has various networks capabilities, gsm,CDMA. Can someone tell me what's needs done to make it work on straighttalk?

    Don't look for a way to make money.
    Find a way to make a living doing what you like to do anyway.

    The process is very different depending on how you want to use Straight Talk... Assuming you are on the latest version of firmware, just get an AT&T-based ST SIM, put in GSM mode, and set APN and your good to go, although with Edge data only... No mods to phone required.

    To go Verizon CDMA on ST, that's a different story entirely...

    Your phone is already carrier unlocked... when people talk about the Rezound (and most HTC's) when they say "unlocked" they mean the bootloader, which is different than a carrier lock, which is what most GSM carriers have, an unlocked bootloader allows for fastboot commands to work, thus enabling rooting, roming, etc.

    When I reboot my phone the top of the screen in pink says "locked". What does that mean?

    Isn't that just the lock screen? That's where you'd have to type in a pin to get to your home screen.

    No, when I pull the battery, reinsert then hold power and volume down when the menu comes up , at the top of screen it says in pink "locked" at the very top. So is the whole thing locked or is that just for the boot loader that's locked

    Boot loader, I'd think.

    That means the bootloader is locked... in order to root, ROM, flash via fastboot, etc. the bootloader would need to be unlocked.

    The Rezound is not, and never has been, carrier locked to a GSM carrier, or any carrier for that matter.
