They're being idiots. Soon an unlock solution will be developed and these will be made redundant.
Furious Gold will probably get it first (Shops will charge a minimum of £20 probably £25)
if you are lucky afterwards.
DC Unlocker might do it for £10 or less if you buy a dongle. (Dunno that they support ZTE phones though only datacards).
If its done the same way as Huawei (Using the QFuse where you need a code to enter diag or download mode).
It will be a total bitch without jtag.

The unbraded ZTE Skate will be available from September 16th priced at £225.60 including VAT. The ZTE Tureis will be priced at £144 and the ZTE Libra priced at £166.80, both available on September 9th.
so they have until september 9th to release the 2.6.35 kernel sourcecode then, not today (which they've failed to do already).
can't see anyone would buy any of those phones at those price points, we only need one person to do it and dump it onto an OMC though

the thing about the blade is it blew all the competition away at the price point. its frustrating cause the skate could do something similar at the 'comfortably below £200' level...the luxuriously large screen is a top value feature and with official 2.3 (and custom 2.3s) it could be a great experience, like a budget desire HD or galaxy. but ZTE absolutely have to get the faster, more modern flash compatible CPU version (seems increasingly dubious whether this even exists atm!) out soon and below £200 to start with. realistically networks should get the faster version asap and we'll see what happens with pricing and unlock options. then they could kick some butt at this price point. i'd definitely get one.
