Hi forums,

has anyone (UK) bought an unlocked Pre from expansys and been able to get it to work with a non O2 sim?

Mixed messages on the forums on unlocked Pre's working out of the box or having to mess with network settings.

Just wanted to know.

Thanks folks.

Darren

I really like the palm pre plus and am looking to get the palm pre plus from AT&T and unlock it for use in Malaysia. What is the best way to unlock the phone, as I have seen some solutions online.

Is there any know issues with unlocking the phone?

Also would there be any problem for me to upgrade the OS in the future and will it effect the phone? Would I need to unlock the phone again?

You won't get any HSDPA if you use AT&T Palm Pre Plus other then AT&T itself. You will only get EDGE speed. Because AT&T network radio somewhat differs from others.

You can do update even not use AT&T, and don't have any bad effect on the phone, except you only get EDGE speed, no need to unlock more then once even after update firmware. But make sure you already unlocked it before use it outside AT&T.

Thanks for the useful information.

An additional question. Would it be any different if I get the model from Verizon? Would this allow me to connect with my carrier with 3G/HSDPA connectivity?

Verizon is cdma carrier, so you won't get gsm version if you want buy from verizon. But if you prefer cdma over gsm, then verizon is the best option to get pre plus. You can get full speed EVDO using any carrier you want. But keep in mind that CDMA version never have SIM card. So you need to find a way to inject your phone number to the phone.

I can't believe that there is no free way to unlock an AT&T GSM pre?! You can do it on the more closed iPhone! Am I wrong?
