Probably a stupid noob question:
Is there no way to unlock the phone just by installing another ROM?
My Samsung Galaxy S was locked (to Spanish "Yoigo") and I unlocked it just by installing a unlocked-unbranded stock ROM. No need for IMEI unlock. But well, It was 18 months ago and another manufacturer.

Still can someone answer if that is possible with this phone and if not, why not?

Thanks in advance :)


Hi Fluoroscopic......your Galaxy S SIM unlock???

You sure it was not this App, from XDA's helroz ....not a Stock ROM, perhaps?? Maybe Rooted ROM??

Come to think of it, I think you're right, I have a faint memory of using this exact app :P
it was long ago, in technological terms, my memory works in dog years :P
Thanks for pointing it out :)

So in theory, could it then be possible, if someone finds out, to develop an app like this for the ascend g300? (I got this g300 for one of my sisters, have it unlocked through IMEI as of today, but I was considering getting another one for my other sis).

SIM/Network is so cheap on eBay it is hardly worth trying other methods... like I unlocked for under £5.00....

cheers on the App btw
