I recently bought an unlock code from Cell Unlocker.NET to unlock a Motorola DROID 2 GLOBAL which was locked to the Verizon Wireless network.

Navigating to the about phone section

Menu - > Settings - > About Phone -> Status

I saw two IMEI numbers. enter image description here

I used the top one (IMEI) as the code to complete the unlock process however when I tried to unlock the device it rejected the code.

  • Should I have used the IMEI SV?

  • I have Android 2.3.4 but this device is normally equipped with 2.2, could that be the problem?

You should probably use the IMEI. The IMEI ends with a checksum, whereas IMEI SV ends with a Software Version number which shouldn't be relevant.
