Default unlock sim for Straight Talk SGS2- SGH-S959G

I've purchased the Straight Talk (Tracfon) Samsung Galaxy S2 Model SGH-S959G. However, the sim is locked. Is there anyway that I can unlock it and also root the phone?

Please help me.

Default So New Kernel == Unlock?

Thanks

Nope, there used to be an app to unlock it, downloaded it from google play store, but I think you can only find it here at xda developers now.

I think you need to Odin the i777 firmware to it before you can use the app to unlock.
