will flashing the rom remove simlock?
hi! i'm planning to buy the diamond when it comes out here in india...however, it's locked to a service provider AIRTEL's sims.
Now, my question is, if i go and get the device without the sim, the device won't go into phone mode. and probably it'll give a wrong-sim error at boot up
so, suppose i flash the phone to one of the ROMs, will that remove the sim-lock? or will i have to depend on a sim-unlock tool (which so far hasn't appeared on this forum yet)
also, will i be able to use the phone in offline (no-sim) mode?
can someone shed light on this...thanks!
