Question by infinitedesignz: where can i unlock my cell phone in maryland / washington dc?
i need to unlock my cell phone to use with another carrier. Is there a local place that can do it in the dc, maryland, virginia area?

Answer by John
No, it is a violation of licensing agreements to unlock a phone. You’re going to have to do it yourself. However bare in mind only at&t and T-Mobile are compatible. Verizon and sprint are CDMA based and while technically compatible it may be a challenge to get them to work on each others network.

Can I activate a Verizon cell phone on the U.S. Cellular network?

Question by Shay: Can I activate a Verizon cell phone on the U.S. Cellular network?
I live in Southwest Virginia and U.S. Cellular is the only company around here. I busted my cell phone and want to buy a new one online. I noticed some of the phones on Ebay say Verizon/US Cellular. Are the phones compatible with both companies?

Answer by speedoboy01
yes as us cellular and verizon don’t use sim cards. it just needs to be unlocked which can be done at a cell shop. beware that if you get a verizon phone you will not be able to use us cellular exclusives such as easyedge.

What cell phone network has the best coverage for the Northern Virginia area?

Question by Matt H: What cell phone network has the best coverage for the Northern Virginia area?
I might be moving there this summer, and I would need to get a new phone with new coverage. What networks are the best in that area?

Best answer:

Answer by rec4lms
Northern Virginia is inundated with cell towers. Thus, just about every major carrier has “full” coverage.

The issues that arise is the dead spots. No matter what plan you will have, there will be the dead spots. Often, these are in buildings but you will find them in odd places. I’ll be out with my friends and someone will have an issue and another will have 5 bars. For the most part, we are moving so nobody is left in a dead zone for very long.

The issues that we run into are when the system will get overloaded. Everyone will have issues with the internet on their phones during peak times. Sometimes the circuits get busy and you can’t make calls. It happens with all the servers.

Currently, I have AT&T as my cell provider and we have issues with cell coverage at my house. Annoying, but not a deal breaker.

Good luck!
