    So I got my ATT Pre 3 yesterday and upon SIM insertion and boot I'm getting the screen below.

    Was wondering if anyone who's unlocked a Pre 3 saw this screen or something else? The unlock code I have doesn't work on this screen. ATT says they don't know what the "carrier unblock" code would be since the device isn't in their system.

    I did try doctoring to 2.2.3 but no luck. Even HP support US tried to help but they really didn't know what to do. I saw a tip on another thread by Jay involving digital unlock and I've emailed them to see if they can help. I'll post any updates.

    Just got this from digital unlock.

    Hi Michael,

    Yep, our unlocker can be run in unblock mode to remove this code. Once you purchase the unlock from us, run the unlocking program according to the instructions, then contact us and we'll guide you through the steps of unblocking afterwards.

    Are you sure it is unlocked? Isn't that the screen for entering the unlock code??

    Checking around the forum, someone else says "[the phone is] blocked [...] because previous user tried to unlock the simlock to many times." If that is true, whoever sold you the phone messed it up!

    I wish it was but the unlock code doesn't work there. I'm trying to get past this screen to enter the unlock code.

    And you can also try Palm Unlock as well. It works and It's excellent.

    Good luck. I agree that the seller should have said something.

    unBLOCK happens when you enter the WRONG unlock code 10 times and it locks the modem down. The guy who sold you the phone is an *****.

    My personal experience is with digital unlock on a previous phone and they should be able to resolve that for you.

    You should get some money back from the guy that sold it to you.

    Okay I think that worked. I had to run the ",unblock" twice but it looks like the second time it took it.

    I was in developer mode so I'm doing a full erase and reboot.

    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Oh man, mdram, that's too bad... Strange that it came that way, when the phone that I bought from the same ebay seller was just fine.

    Yeah, I don't think it was the sellers fault though because the box was sealed. Its just weird that it came up right away with this unblock screen on it...
