What if :
We find an unlocked zte skate on ebay (make sure it's legit direct from zte in china), get a bunch of interested parties to each contribute 10 gbp each then we have this unlocked device shipped to yourself or one of the trusted devs from the zte blade forum, maybe Paul, Kalt, Wbaw?
Then the skilled dev can dump the unlocked rom and work their magic to get the unlock solution for all.
Once the device has served it's purpose we could either :
1) Raffle it off to one of the lucky financiers
2) Sell it on ebay and share the proceeds (a bit complicated) or give the money to charity or something
3) or any better ideas people may have
It would have to be a well administrated process by a trusted member of course (someone with tonnes of respect here at Modaco).
I'm in for a tenner.
What do you guys think?
