    for people that don't have sprint I'm wondering if the data card I have can be unlocked and used with a differant provider.

    it's the "cf 2032"

    it would only be worth it if your provider has an unlimited internet plan...sprint gives unlimited internet for 10 bucks

    anyway, I thought unlocking this to use it with other providers might help some people out

    Again, not sure if I understand your question :)

    Unlock codes for phones default to the last 4 digits of your phone number. This covers the phone itself as well as any memory attached to it. If you are regarding a combo that is a PDA/Smartphone, it may be different.

    that's not what I mean, that's a erpsonal security code you're talking about

    a person can take most phones and unlock the software...then use the phone with another provider besides the one it was purchased

    for instance if you buy a sprint phone they will tell you it can only be used with sprint cdma...this isn't true, it can be unlocked and used with other providers
    so if this data card can be unlocked and used with other providers a person won't have to switch to sprint to use it
