    Hi,
    I need some help.
    I got an ATT branded Veer from ebay for use in germany. The Veer has a netlock.
    My firts thought was to run the EU o2 WebosDocotor and then the Veer has German locales and is unlocked.

    No Sir.. it dont work this way. Standart WebosDoctor refused to work with an ATT Veer. So I tried MetaDoctor Script. This works, now I have EU webos2.1.2. But the NetLock is enabled anyway, grrrrrr.
    So I contacted ATT via mail for an unlock code. They answered an gave my the unlock PIN, but the phone does not accept the PIN.

    Could it be, that the EU Version of webos make it impossible to unlock?
    In this case, what way I have to go to install the ATT WebosDoctor? (the ATT WebOSDoctor refused to install on the now installed EU webos)

    How can I unlock the Phone?

    I m thankfully for every thought.

    Have you tried Dogbert's method (Dogbert's Blog: Free Unlocker for Palm/HP Phones)? I had used it only once, long ago on my first Pre-, but it worked, and author claims it works on every WebOS phone, including Veer.

    I have seen it, but my englich isn't good enough for a complete understandig. I tried a few steps, but I stumble about some things not explained in the howto. I have no succes.
    Maybe I sholud give it another try together with a dictonary

    Edit: Now I remeber. It fails while installing the the R-ACM driver in windows 8. Win 8 would not install the driver. It gives me an error. I sould try it with linux.

    Most important is right software versions for perl etc. You can do it in a VirtualBox with Linux or Win 7. Worked for me in the past.

    I tried another run. I have an Exit by running the unlock script:

    Code:
    pre3_veer_unlock.py v1.6
    Copyright (c) 2011 dogbert <dogber1@gmail.com>, http://dogber1.blogspot.com
    This script reads the unlock code of HP Veer/Pre3 phones.
    
    Scanning serial ports...
    Failed to find the diagnostics port. Exiting...
    I have made all steps carefully. I don't know the serial Port. Syslog noticed the Veer on USB Serial 0 but I have no ttyUSBxxx device.

    Please help...

    I know this can be resolved but I cannot remember how. I do recall using a windows XP device that dual boots to Linux, for this procedure. But i don't know if that is related.

    Endure. Someone here will know and respond if I cannot recall soon. You are making progress!

    I don't recall having any issues. But I used win 7 64 bit. Either find a win 8 < machine or do a virtual one on your win 8 machine.
    If you read the comments on the blog somebody else tried to do that in win 8.1 and had the same issue:

    For those with Windows 8/8.1, you will need to will need use "Advanced Startup" to disable driver signature enforcement on Step 7. Hit the Windows key and begin typing "Change Advanced Startup Options" to get started.


    Just do search on the blog for windows 8 and you'll find all the things that you might try with windows to resolve your issues.

    I had that happen a few times: it's a CRLF issue I think. I suggest you start playing around with the initialization parameters of pyserial.

    Has anybody a idea ...
    I cannot "play around" with this stuff.

    FWIW, I unlocked via dogber1 a couple of years ago on Ubuntu, probably on 64-bit 10.04. For others coming to this thread, the https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/ page also worked for my ATT veer.
