    Do you mean unlock so it can be used on another network? There's a piece of software that can do that, been posted a number of times here. Am on my phone with a low battery so not easy to search, but will post the link when I have a chance.

    I think uncompress it and run it.

    I believe it is the tool described in this XDA thread.

    If on win 7/8 or vista then make sure you right click the .exe file and run as administrator. You will of course have to have installed any necessary drivers for your pc to talk to your phone
