    Pls refer to the thread you're in for more info.

    It's been a wk now and I'm still not able to unlock my pre coz I don't have an xp or vista machine. Any idea if a "NETBOOK" running an xp can be used to unlock the phone?

    im using netbook with win7 to run webos quick install and other mojo/palm 'hacker' programs. i think win7 is much less bothersome than xp. more mac-like if you will

    Thanks GFN. Did the netbook require you to do extra stuffs other than those specified in the nextgenserver's instructions? I am certain that the problem I had in unlocking was due to the firewall which unfortunately I don't have permission to disable. Now I thought of buying a cheap probably a 2ndhand netbook w/ xp

    It seems a bit decadent to buy a netbook just for the unlock.
    Don't you know anyone with an XP machine?

    Hi GFN I am able to borrow a laptop with xp and finally unlocked the phone. So far so good. Web browsing works right away with 3g and I even have access to the app catalogue thanks a lot for the help

    You're welcome. Enjoy your phone!

    Kind a odd. Yesterday the 3g was ok (able to connect to internet) but this morning the device now only displays "g" in the upper right side The only thing I did was to "Turn on the airplane mode". After turning the mode again back to off, the network still displays as "g" and thus not able to connect to internet. Any idea guys?
    Thanks.

    It is working back to 3g now. I tried toggling the "Network auto-select" to on, off, and on. Thanks.

    It auto-switches depending on your signal strength.

    Windows required to unlock a Linux-based phone? Ugh. I borrowed an XP laptop at work and unlocked a used AT&T Pre Plus there. As I figured, the network there blocked whatever the software was trying to do (I'm guessing process data through nextgenserver) just after it hit 100%, so I used Mobile Hotspot on another Pre Plus to give wifi to the laptop and the Pre Plus. It timed out a few times and asked me to retry, and then it worked! Yay Nextgenserver.

    The AT&T Pre Plus was Meta Doctored and signed on to one of my spare profiles via wifi and had a Telstra sim card in it from my last trip to Australia (on that trip I had a Pixi Plus I managed to get AT&T to give me the code for).

    My phone was relocked when sent back for repair. It seems my original phone with the same imei has been sent back to me but I tried the original calculated unlock codes and they failed.
    I have three questions:
    1) In case I remember incorrectly, which code should I be putting in? the one marked "sim code"

    2) shouldn't this code unlock the phone again since it's the same phone?

    3) have you heard about this situation before and how was it resolved?

    No idea, I'm travelling at the moment. Contact Nextgen.

    One curious question. Please help by answering this:

    I have my Palm Pre locked to O2, UK. To unlock it, I had given it to a couple of retail shops which unlock phones. They failed to unlock. But they did attempt to unlock.

    Now my question is, does it matter if they have tried to enter unlock codes numerous times on the device?

    If its okay, then I shall go ahead and get an unlock code from Nextgen Server.

    It depends on your answers guys.

    You can check it:

    Pop in a sim card, and boot your phone,
    It will ask for an unlock code, or an unBlock code. Notice the 'B'
    If the B in unBlock is present, you have a problem, consult Nextgen how to solve that.
    If you don't have the 'B' go ahead, and purchase the unlock.
    Life moves fast, don't miss a thing!

    It says - "Enter Network Unlock Code"
    "Contact your carrier for the unlock code"

    Hurray!!! Woo Hooo!!

    Thanx a million Richard
