I am happy to report that I have CID unlocked my phone using the service from IMEI-Check and have been functioning perfectly for 2 days using the iMate SmartFlip ROM.
Application unlock your phone using the HTC signed Registry Editor. (RegeditSTG - Google it) Copy this to your phone directly and run it on the phone. Change the key values noted below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001 = 2 -->Change the value data from 2 to 1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005 = 16 --> Change the value data from 16 to 40
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001017 = 128 --> Change the value data from 128 to 144
CID (Carrier ID) unlock your phone. If you bought the Qtek like me, your phone will only accept Qtek ROMs. By purchasing the CID unlock code from http://www.imei-check.co.uk/
I unlocked my phone in about a minute, which allows me to install any ROM (Qtek, DoPod, iMate, etc)
Download and run the imate SmartFlip ROM from ftp://ftp.clubimate.com
i-mate_Smartflip_WWE_1.2.301.2_ship.zip (slow FTP site, took about 25 mins to DL)
Important to note that all your config/data will be erased from the phone so back that up. It will not touch anything on the storage card of course.
One thing to note is that the first time you CID unlock your phone it will throw the phone into bootloader mode. Youíll need to run it a second time (immediately after the first time) to actually unlock it. Itís in the FAQ, but still worried me when I did it. Worked like a champ though. I had the unlock code seconds after my PayPal transaction went through.
That should do it.. I am happy to say Iíve missed no calls for 2 days no, no texts, nothing. Phone is awesome, and working as it should have been in the first place.
Good luck everyone!
