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.

That thread shows how to install a new kernel on the device, which is great. But does that mean it is also unlocked (besides rooted)?

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.
