    Hey guys,

    I want to unlock my UK Palm Pre, so I won't have to **** around with modem software anymore (when upgrading to 1.4.5).

    It currently runs 1.4.1 outside the UK with a rebel sim and has access to paid apps.

    I just wanna be sure I'll still be able to access paid apps after ditching the rebel sim and doing a regular unlock. Anyone able to shed some light on this?

    I bought a UK o2 palm pre from ebay and used the nextgenservers unlock. I am on UK vodafone and the paid apps work fine. I have bought about 5 in total.

    I am in the same boat as you and was wondering, will updating to 1.4.5 effect our unlock? what carriers update do we have to install on our Pre or doesn't it matter?

    Thanks for any heads up

    It will overwrite your current install with the new 1.4.5. It will erase all your data on the phone. You will be able to log into your profile and get all your info+apps back, of course.. But you might want to backup your photos, etc.

    Thanks for the fast explanation Bru. Have you installed the 1.4.5 update?. have you a link to all the improvements in the update?

    Any problems?

    Appreciated

    Just installed it via the link above. So far not much has changed.. I think it's mainly an update for the PDK apps. They're holding out new features for the fall update/webos 2.0?

    You don't need to "Doctor". I have an unlocked Spanish Movistar Pre operating in Australia and have gone through the OTA update process several times. The update that I get is the Movistar one (you don't get to choose), but there are no language problems, or indeed any effect on the state of my phone. If your phone was a UK O2 phone, you will get that one. It's probably generic GSM EU anyway.
