Sim Carrier unlock?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is it possible to unlock Blade 3, so I can use other SIM cards, via QXDM or any other free method? I don't have Sigmakey, and I dont want to pay for the unlock.

Can you explain, where is the carrier info for the lock saved, is it in NVRam or somewhere else? I made a backup via QPST so I can preserve the IMEI.

Thans in advance!

There's an unlocking method but I'm not sure if anyone tested it on a Blade III.

SIM lock is likely not in NV memory, might be in cefs. Using a Windows flasher (that erases cefs) has usually also SIM unlocked the device.

I didn't try that gude, I saw it but, two bricked phones, it does not look promising.

What windows flasher do you recommend, I'm not sure about which software you are thinking, a link would help. Can I make a backup of that partition? Can you give me more info?

Thanks in advance!

That's the only Windows flasher available for this device (besides QPST of course) and those are the only firmware files available too.

 

I don't have a device anymore and SIM unlocking is not relevant where I live so I've never really looked into it.

Is it possible to do something via linux, I'm open to all options. Although I would not like to brick the device.

Can I dump the partitions somehow via dd or any other tool?

Sure you can dump each partition (or even the whole mmcblk0) with dd, but what good is that going to do?

Hi, 

Personally, I'm staying away from these so-called free methods, since some of them can be pretty dangerous. Instead, I use a couple of paid services, with more than decent prices. One of my recommendations is UnlockUnit, a service which impressed me with the delivery time and the professionalism of their support team. Give them a try, if you want.
