    In summary,
    1). He purchased an AT&T Pre Plus in the USA at an AT&T Retail store.
    2). Brought it to Canada
    3). Installed a WebOS meta doctor image, skipping First Use (activation and Palm profile creation) so he could perform the NextGen Unlock process.
    4). He unlocked it using the NextGen unlock process so he could use it on Telus Canada with his Telus SIM card.
    5). He manually entered the network settings for Telus.
    6). After unlocking the device, and manually entering the Telus network settings, he ran the First Use app (for language selection, activation, and palm profile creation).

    mafiaboy01 - we'd like to document the exact process you used for the benefit of other Canadians wanting full US App catalog access on their Unlocked GSM Pre/Pre Plus's so please chime in and confirm step 6 - in the process - that you ran First Use at this juncture and if you did, which SIM card (Telus or AT&T) did you use to do it (VERY IMPORTANT).

    After performing steps 1 - 6, He has access to the full US App Catalog, Free and Paid apps - on the Telus network in Canada.

    Note regarding step 6 - We know that Palm requires us to have a Palm Profile before they will allow our Pre's and Pixi's to access the Palm App Catalog. From my experience, performing the activation step on an unlocked GSM Pre/Pre Plus is only necessary so the device can be used to create or setup the Palm Profile, and unlike CDMA Palm Pre's/Pixi's, activation is not used for "carrier" activation. The radios on Unlocked GSM Pre's work just fine without activation, however, the Pam profile necessary for App Catalog access cannot be created unless language is selected, and then activation performed first (or can it ????) .

    Yup, intertwined. That's exactly the point I was trying to make. Just wanted confirmation. I left out the language selection part. Good catch! I'm adding it now.
