Yes. If you use the search option, you will find what you are looking for 99% of the time. Sometimes people are just too lazy to do it.

I think there was a typo above. It is more like 9% of the time. Lol. Unless you type exactly word for word the results often send you to completely different forums, even though it says "search this forum". Test it yourself... Search using XDA search button and then do a Google Search. Google is much better, for me anyway. :)

Well, you need some practice before you can get it to work for you and not against you! But, Google is always your friend!

Good writeup. I need to do an FAQ too but I've just been too busy.

Users can use the diagnostic menu to check lock status:

I don't think that's correct. My x10 has 0 next to Sim but it's definitely locked to t-mobile. There's an X in the box next to where it says network for locked phones.

The [X] means it is locked. The 0 means that you have 0 attempts left to enter the unlock code. You get 10 in a new phone. Did you enter the codes too many times or did you buy your phone pre-owned?
