8. Close the Ports window and click on SPC.In DFS log must write UNLOCKED DEVICE.
9. If this OK go to Programming and type your IMEI in right place. (you can read Imei from phone box)

I have tried to read about this... a lot.
My question is about unlocking using the method in this thread:
If I use/buy an unlock code and enter the that code I know the mobile is unlocked forever.
If I unlock using this method in this thread, points 8, 9, 10.
Is this method simply fooling the phone into thinking it is unlocked when it is not?
(i.e. the code is still somwhere within the handset, but the method used in this thread skips the request that the handset would normally make for it when an incorrect SIM is inserted because it reads "UNLOCKED DEVICE" (as in point 8) and so it doesn't look any further)?
Or does unlock method in this thread mimic the behavior of entering an unlock code (ie. code is entered, accepted and appropriate flag is then set to unlocked and/or it accepts the codes, wipes/clears the "lock code" forever on the mobile and sets flag to unlocked)?
Sorry just trying to figure out the finer detail of this unlock... I am worried of using this method and then at some time it again requesting for a code.
I am wondering if this unlock method in this thread is similar to what DC-Unlocker uses?
I think the DC-Unlocker method seems only like a bypass (ie. it skips the request for an unlock code but if the phone is ever reset or reflashed then the need for unlock code is still there deep inside, so request would reappear again)
