For those people who are overseas (I know there's a guy in Thailand, another in Canada (the TS here) and a guy in India and maybe more) did you get Activated phones which you then unlocked?
For those of you who have un-activated phones, how did you unlock them as from what I'm reading the phones need to be activated before you can unlock them for use with a foreign SIM card.
Finally, for those in the know, what about the new droidbandunlock (google it) and the appearance of the SBF? Coupled with an unlock code (10 bucks on ebay) can they help those get a phone that will work with foreign SIM's?
Why is activation so important? What is the "switch" that gets toggled? I understand those folks who upgrade ROM's will have to re-activate?
