I was a G1 homie, been away from this for a bit but having a lot of fun diving back in..
Update : pretty sure im unlocked now, is there any way to check without another carriers sim? I don't have one handy and don't wanna buy into net10 and get a sim if my previous mission wasn't successful
I think without another carrier's SIM you can't be completely sure. I say that because, if I remember right, back when I unlocked I had all the right info in all the right places in the service menu. When I put my Net10 SIM card in it was still locked. I ended up having to buy an unlock code and revert the settings back to the "out of the box" state before the unlock code would actually work.
On a related note; Net10 has done me pretty well so far; been with them a little over a year now. Been all over NW Florida, Alabama, and most every state between here and Minnesota; only dead spot I really hit and stayed in was about an hour on the interstate between Iowa and Missouri. I am running off AT&T's towers, so wherever AT&T has LTE, I also have it.
With auto-renew set, Net10 is almost exactly the same price as Straight Talk; and I still get unlimited everything; though I've never gone much over 2GB of data, so I can't say if they definitely throttle or cut data off completely after a certain point. Speeds vary between 15-30Mbps down and about 10-15Mbps up on LTE, but lets be honest; unless you're using your mobile data as a hotspot or routinely download large files, do you really notice a difference on a mobile device?
