Not surprised at all, but hopefully comparisons between this clean one and the Orange one may show something up.

Interesting to see that, once again, my long press numeric keys dont work properly in this rom, leaving CM7 as the only one that works properly...am i missing something? Some default setting im not aware of?

On the whole though, nice clean rom, pretty quick.

Newb question... can somebody who has some knowledge of unlocking tell me how likely it is that an unlock will never be freely available (besides thru Orange)? I mean, is it usually just a matter of time before any phone can be unlocked or are their certain devices for which it's just impossible?

AS I said before guys it would be more likely that a modded tpt image which was posted will unlock the phone.

Hey Tillaz ;-)

Standard Android keyboard (froyo onward I think) has a dual purpose top row. A single press on any key gives you a letter q w e r etc. If you press and hold these keys you should get 1 2 3 4 and so on.

Its actually a more basic version of the HTC IME keyboard where all the keys are multipurpose, in that keyboard you can access punctuation and modified letters like â ç ü é õ and such.

The installed XT9 keyboard works just fine, and the dictionary in XT9 is also OK, but interestingly enough the android keyboard only suggests word from my contact list (another weird issue)blink.gif

This question has been asked and answered so many times already.

The lock is in the NAND, and every ROM that ZTE will release will check that, even the ones that come 'unlocked' will have the check. The 'factory unlocked' devices that ZTE ship will have the NAND set to be unlocked.

Sorry :( , I'm new to android world, I did not know this is well know fact.

I hope someone will hack NAND thing (the devil inside the phone ;) )

What about the IMEI code? Did you try changing it?

This is just an idea :)

No don't try this . I think that might be why my iemi was blocked by orange.
