    Hi all, just a thought but if people root their streaks or download other operating systems wouldnt this wipe the phone altogether thus deleting the locked o2 network?? :confused::confused:

    No, that part of the phone does not have anything to do with the lock.

    A reply to the latest email I got from O2 about unlocking:

    Contradicting themselfs I think, I rang them yesterday trying to play the "Iam going abroad for a few weeks and need it unlocking" and they said if you had the phone longer than 12 month they WILL unlock it, anything before that its a no-no. The system that unlocks the phone will see that its not 12 month thus preventing it and theres no overiding the system. So come on O2 you can either unlock it and stop the BS "Exclusive to O2" crap or you cant!!!! :confused::confused:

    Just tried that with O2 UK and it says it cannot be unlocked , good thing really as I bought a Rebel sim v1.2 the other day and it works a treat. :):)

    O2 uses a totally different algorythm to generate their (un)lock codes.
    At this moment, it's only the Rebel Sim that works.

  11. I just went to the site and am awaiting a response. I will let everyone know how it goes. I am locked to AT&T even though I didnt buy my streak with a plan :mad:

    I have AT&T service and purchase the Streak off contract.
    I just called AT&T support and asked for the unlock code, saying I planned to travel and would need the unlock code.
    They asked me my IMEI I gave it to them and in a few minutes they provided the code.
    I had to borrow a friends T-Mobile SIM card to see if it work but the code provided work just fine.
