Default SPL Unlock

First off, I'm no developer. So, I could be way off.

Anyway, I picked up my Incredible on launch day and got a temp number assigned to the phone because I was with T-Mobile. Today, I had my number ported over. When I did that, my phone stopped working. Basically, I needed to re-program the phone. I saw that *228 is how it is done.

Needless to say, when I started to reprogram process the phone had a status window that said "unlocked SPL". Would this be some sort of window of opportunity for rooting or installing an unsigned ROM?
Phone: I can never just pick one..

All phones go through this step. It's about programming the phone with Verizon wireless towers. It has nothing to do with a root opportunity. Some phones will go other details during the programming process.
