I contacted Motorola's technical support for data and software, after being referred to them by Verizon Tech support. Motorola said that the Q is not a locked phone, and was designed to only support certified programs. They indicated that you can't unlock an application because its not locked.

To unlock:

Use a Registry Editor and change the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies:

Change the DWORD named "1001" to 1

Change the DWORD named "1005" to 40

Thanks for your response. Have you install the Sniper on your Q and does it work?

Finally, can you recommend a registery ediitor program for the Q and if possible can you add the link for the download?

I hope this helps.....it worked for me

Your Windows Mobile Smartphone is application locked, meaning that you can’t

install unsigned applications, games or tweaks? No problem! In this little

tutorial I will show you how you can application unlock your phone with a

couple of simple Registry edits.

First you need a trusted Registry Editor for your Smartphone.

I recommend the original “Regedit STG” from HTC. You can download it

from here [3] or here [1] (please report if links are broken) or just Google for it.

After you have downloaded “Regedit STG” the application unlock process can start.

1) Simply put the *.zip file with the regeditSTG.exe in it with ActiveSync

into a folder on your phone (but not onto the memory card).

2) Unzip the file with the *.zip program that comes with your phone.

3) Now start regeditSTG.exe and change the following Registry Keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001001 = 2

-> Change the value data from 2 to 1

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001005 = 16

-> Change the value data from 16 to 40

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001017 = 128

-> Change the value data from 128 to 144

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Security\Policies\Policies

-> Add new value "0000101b": Dword = 1

After you have done all these steps close Regedit STG with the

task manager (TaskMan) of your phone and reboot. That’s it.

Your phone is now totally application unlocked.

I dont get what I'm missing, I followed these steps and I still get access denied because its not signed... what did I miss. I have a Q with the latest update as far as i know, is that the problem?
