    I don't think you can run a cdma phone on gsm network...

    The photon is an international phone. Someone created a hack using motorola japan radios to be able to use the sim instead of cdma...

    The photon has gsm and cdma radios

    So, how about asking Sprint to give me the code, would they do it if I cancel and pay the ETF? Or if I wait until the contract is over (Sep 2013) and ask them for the unlock code?

    Sent from my Photon 4G that Stupid Motorola will not upgrade to ICS or any other newer form of Android because they're a bunch of lying bastards (and deserve to go to h e ll!) using Android Central Forums

    Stock, the SIM card doesn't have the ability to use us gsm radio.

    You have to flash the Japanese radio in my last post.
