I got a SIM unlock code for my T-Mobile pocket pc phone edition,
and I am wondering, if I install the ROM/RSU update off the
website, will that RE-Lock the SIM afterwards?

Want to make sure!

No, it will not. The locks are in a part of the ROM which is not
erased by the RSU/monitor upgrade tool.

Not that you would care anymore...

Time for an upgrade!

I guess if I backup first, then restore after then my ppc2002
settings and software should stay the same?

On the download site it says:

To install the Pocket PC Phone Edition Upgrade, you will need
the following:
A T-Mobile activated Smart/SIM Card inserted into your Pocket PC
Phone Edition
A fully charged battery

does this mean that since I have my SIM unlocked and am on a
different provider, that the upgrade wont install? :cry:

How would that help me?

My unit is already unlocked, I was just a little scared by the
"You must have a T-mobile SIM in the unit in order to upgrade

Oops, sorry,

We weren't reading correctly, we figured you were still worried
about the lock. Please let us know if the upgrade fails because
of the SIM not being in.

You might be able to swap the data files into another RSU
upgrade package.

I updated two T-Mobile's with the upgrade with Fido SIM's and so
far is seems OK.
