Can anyone provide me with a known working guide to sim unlocking this model?
Also, will flashing a custom rom - TW or CM based unlock the sim?
Thanks for any input.

This might be what you are looking for:

Read through the entire thread before you touch anything! There are possible risks with the method and you need to read about them so you can make an informed decision about if you want to try it or not. If you choose to not read the entire thread or take precautions, it's up to you.
Searching through the "general" and Q&A forums for "unlock" should show you others threads that you might want to read as well. Good luck.
Oh, and flashing other ROMs will not sim unlock the phone.
