    I just purchased a second hand Samsung Galaxy Nexus (GMS) in France carrier locked to SFR. Since the previous owner didn't provide the receipt, it will be virtually impossible to convince the carrier to unlock it for me (even though French and European legislation says otherwise).

    If I understand correctly, unlocking the bootloader or rooting the phone will not get me anywhere. How can I carrier-unlock this phone without having to install a custom ROM.

    I will gladly accept links to other threads although I have looked and did not find any clear answers.

    [EDIT] It occurs to me that since this is a Google vanilla phone I could simply flash it with a stock Android ICS ROM. Is this correct ?
