This could be very useful as apparently my phone would support AWS (well, still have to verify but for that I need to unlock it) and my second carrier is AWS.

It does indeed!
The numbers are bigger after *#06# though so it is much easier to read!!

With a lot of help from jh787, I have been discussing a hack which will give us SIM unlock for free.
I now have a method which I think works for all, but I need a few people to test first.

So, if you:

a) Have already bought an unlock SIM code for your phone OR
b) Want to see if this method will work

Then please read on and send me a pm with your results.

You need:

1) Root
2) Terminal Emulator (free from the market)
3) A spare Micro SIM from another network

Step 1

Obtain your UN_lock_code from your phone as follows:

Open the Terminal Emulator app and type:

su [enter]
strings -n 8 /dev/block/mmcblk0p6 [enter]

It will output several lines of data.
One of the lines will be [eg] UN_Lock_code=063312345

Make a note of this number (This is NOT your SIM unlock code)

Step 2

Send me a pm with:

1) The last 7 digits of your IMEI number (type *#06# in dialler to get this)
2) The UN_Lock_code obtained from step 1 above.

If you have already bought a SIM unlock code and know that it works, please send me that as well. (This will help to confirm if this method works properly).

For anyone who has not yet SIM-unlocked their phone, but is willing to try [1 attempt!], I will generate a SIM unlock code and send it back via pm for you to try. If it works, I will publish the method for all to use.

Thanks in advance for your help!
Gonna do this the minute I grab mines. Lol
