A Motorola Backflip unlocked runs on all GSM networks. The Motorola Backflip needs an unlock code to remove it’s SIM lock. Essentially a SIM lock comes on most Motorola phones that use a SIM card.

So first thing is first. You need a Motorola Backflip unlock code that is unique to your phone. You can sometimes get a free unlocking code by calling up your phone carrier’s support number and requesting one. In exchange, they will need your Backflip’s IMEI number (also unique to your phone).
