What preparations did you guys do?
Why do you guys like intermediaries to service your phones? I bought my SGS2 on a carrier, if a have some problem with it i'll just take it to a Samsung repair center, not my carrier...
I've done this multiple times with my or my friends phones... Be it Nokia, Samsung or HTC. Manufacturers don't really care if the phone is unbranded of unlocked.
My previous phone was an HTC TyTn, some months after after i bought it, the camera stopped working. My phone was running a custom ROM, was unlocked and even had a custom bootloader (HardSPL). The HTC guys told me that the only thing i need to do was flash the original HTC bootloader, because their flashing equipment doesn't work with HardSPL. Then i came locked again and with my carrier ROM. When i got home, i unlocked it again and unbrand it.
With Nokia, things are even better, because unlike HTC/Samsung, unlocking Nokias costs some money because they need some specialized boxes for unlocking, not just a USB cable and some program. I normally go to Nokia Care Center and kindly ask them if they don't mind not locking the phone again, and generally they don't mind...
The only thing you need to make sure at phone repair center: always talk with a Man, they tend to be sensible to this sort of things... Womans are always "by the book"... LOL
