Question about rooted Captivate

Sooo,

IDK much about android. Although I would like to learn more. Anyways, a while back I rooted my captivate and flashed Andromeda custom. (forgive if my terms are incorrect)


So my question is: I am going abroad this summer to Korea...they use a UMTS 2100 MHz network

if I followed the captivate guide from xda and used Galaxy S Unlock and when i type: *#7465625#
It says:
Personalizatiob Status

Network Lock
[OFF]
Network Subset Lock
[OFF]
SP Lock
[OFF]
CP Lock
[OFF]

Does this mean my phone is unlocked and will work in Korea? Please help cause I am leaving pretty soon.

Thanks again

Thanks for the help...I am a novice so I just wanted to confirm.

Another question I am currently using Andromeda ROM if I flash back to stock, but phone remains rooted this will not affect the phone being unlocked. Is that correct?

Once unlocked--always unlocked.

I suggest flashing any of the i9000 ported ROMs. They are more international friendly.

so, i flashed from andromeda to AOKP and now I have a new issue

I tried checking if it was still unlocked using *#7465625# and it says Connection Problem or Invalid MMI Code

what's wrong? is it not unlocked...is there another way to unlock it...

I need the phone unlocked please help or I guess I gotta flash back

Once you unlock the phone it is unlocked through other flashes. I'm not positive but I believe the dialer code you are trying is Samsung specific that's why it's not working on the aokp based ROM you are on
