    Weird situation. I have two phones, less than a year old. a razr HD and a razr. I bought them from verizon on my ex-wife's account (like $300 or so paid up front) and now she has decided to dump verizon. Verison will not let me assume the account without her say so and she isn't going to give it so the phones will be locked. Is there any way to reflash them for use on another network? I was thinking cricket or something similar.
    I don't want to have to buy new phones in less than a year.

    Thanks in advance,

    Rich

    One of my buddy flashes version phones to page plus. It's a pre paid service.

    You should be able to activate them on your own Verizon account when she takes the phones off or closes her account.

    She's not taking them off or closing the account, she's just not paying it anymore.

    WOW that sounds bad. She would rather take the credit hit then let you take over the account. Not good. Hopefully someone can tell you how to unlock them. Best of luck to you on all of it man.

    If they're locked selling them would just be cheating somebody else.

    I thought they had sim cards that could be changed out to use a different carrier.I had to buy one for my razr maxx for $10.00.
