    We only have one doctor (the EU one) available for the Pre 3. Therefore when (not if) you need to doctor your device in the future, that is the one you will be using. It is also the one on which patches and kernels are based.

    If you choose not to use the EU doctor, you're on your own as far as homebrew goes.

    I tried the Pre 3 Impersonation and the Doctor won't recognize my Pre 3. My guess is that I need to unlock the phone before I apply the EU WebOS doctor, is that correct?

    The webOS Doctor also has no relationship to carrier locking.

    Rod, I love you man, in a totally not creepy, tech kind of way. But it would have been clearer if you had said 'The WebOS Doctor will not unlock your phone.'

    Saying 'no relationship to carrier locking' is simply too complicated a statement for me. I'm simply not that smart. (But I'm pretty as all get out.)

    You are the WebOS lord of all, and you really shouldn't have to waste your time clarifying trivial stuff like this, but sometimes you gotta just lay it on the line. (I feel a 70's rock song coming on....)

    So first I'm going to deal with how to unlock this thing and then I'll get back to you if I have any other questions.

    And what are you wearing. Okay, I guess that was creepy. Never mind...

    Actually, it's more than that. Not only will the webOS Doctor not unlock your phone, it also doesn't care whether your phone is unlocked or not. Hence, no relationship.

    Ok, that tells me a non-techie like me shouldn't risk patching (...even the simple alarm time and snooze patches?).

    Patching a Pre 3 is perfectly safe, as long as you have done Pre 3 Impersonation - WebOS Internals first.

    Okay I get it! Fine! When you put it like that it's very clear. Thank you.

    And Rod is right, there's nothing to worry about with patches or doctoring your phone. The only thing you should worry about it posting something in the forums that makes you look kind of stupid.

    Not that I would know anything about that. At all. Really. Nope. Not me.

    Thanks for the info, and forgive my barrage of questions, but does this MUST be done "out of the box", or can I do it some time later after using the att pre3 as it is for a while?
