ok check this out. I bought a MPX220 from ebay while ago. it was locked to AT&T. So I contacted Cingular and requested an Unlock Code. They provided it to me via email a few days later.

As you may or may not know you are allowed, by the phone, 5 attempts to correctly enter your unlock code before the phone Hard Locks to the original provider it was programmed for. I enterd mine once, apparently Wrong cuz the phone immediatly hard locked, which eant some other moron had attempted sumthing another 4 times!!

So, Thinking I was screwed, I was getting ready to box my phone up and send it to a company I found on he net that claimed to be able to repair this kind of hard lock when a friend of mine suggested trying to flash it with a differnt ROM Image. The logic was that mabey flashing it would overwrite the lock & I couldnt possibly screw it up worse. so I purchased an AT&T SIM card from ebay and flashed the dam thing and ill be damned but when it was done it booted up and asked me for the unlock code again!! which I VERY CAREFULLY entered and now my phone works flawlessly and unlocked!! tongue.gif tongue.gif

Just thought Id share!!
