Default Unlock Pulse

Hey,

Does anyone know the best / cheapest way to unlock the Pulse?

Also, if I did unlock it would I still get android updates?... For example to 2.0 if I had an O2 sim in it?

Thanks

David

I got my Pulse unlocked from T-mobile (via customer support) and I've tried it with an O2 SIM and it works fine.

It cost me 14.68 and took about 1 week to get the unlock code (called them up and asked for it instead of waiting for it in the post). As far as I know that's the cheapest way at the moment.

I don't know about OTA updates however, I believe they can be done manually if needed so this shouldn't be a problem.

Hey, thanks for your reply.

So did you buy a PAYG model from a T-Mobile store then phone up CS and just ask for an unlock code? Or did you get it as an upgrade?

Got a PayG phone, then called them up and asked for the unlock code. I got mine unlocked so I can use it with other SIMs when I'm out of the UK (roaming costs the earth!).

Some of the CS folk may say you need to be with them for >3 months before you can get an unlock code but that's not the case. Just hang up and call them back until you get someone who lets you unlock the phone.

Thanks for your reply I may wait just to be sure it gets the 2.0 update.

I don't see why it wouldn't, if the G1 which has less ROM(?) gets it the pulse must also be in line?

I sure hope so. Native MS Exchange support would be great! Roadsync is pretty good but having to juggle two calendars can be a bit of a pain!

Did you try inserting SIM card belonging to another network? The unlock wizard pops up on my phone when I do this.

And that's where you enter the code! Brilliant, thanks for that.

There is a cheaper way.. it works and does not void warranty.

Check it here : XSIM V4 NO CUT - Unlock any phone easy - 1 UNIT on eBay (end time 07-Jun-10 03:50:11 BST)

I really don't think that there is a cheaper way fro that.. (do note that the shipping is also free.. sweet!!! )


By the way.. i have tested it myself and it does work nicely!! (Took about 3 days to get to me.. that's fast!)
