I recently bought an unlock code 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.

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.
