    Hi,


    while visiting the US, I purchased a Pre3 at HP's webOS store in Sunnyvale, but figured out that this is locked to AT&T. Since I'm returning to Europe soon, I'd like to use it outside AT&T.

    I called AT&T for an unlock code, and they'd be willing to help, but failed to find the device in their system.

    1) Any positive experience with digitalunlock.com? They offer to unlock the device for $49.

    2) Is there a way to bypass the activation and at least access the device without using the phone part for now?
    HP documents how to do this (https://developer.palm.com/content/r...ed_device.html) for webOS 2.0 and 3.0 devices, but the process ("Go to the phone app. On a GSM phone, press "#*DEVMODE#", followed by the call button.") does not really work, as I'm stuck in the activation screen and can't go to the phone app. How do I do this?


    Regards

    at the activation screen, tap the notification area as if making an emergency call. Backspace out the numbers and enter the bypass code.

    I installed it, logged into my palm profile, but my phone still does not show me actually being logged in. I am going to keep trying, but am I doing something wrong?
