    Hey Jason,

    We can release the device from our data base, but please note that when we do the device does not become unlocked. The device remains as CDMA!

    @Karina - unless the functionality has been disabled & as I understand the specs, the Zing is capable of accessing GSM based international networks as well as CDMA, but to do so requires a UICC Unlock to unpair the LTE SIM, allowing the SIM slot to be used for a SIM from a foreign network - so the request is really to unlock the SIM slot for international use, along the lines of this page (for Ting).
