yes confirmed.

We have ATT unlocked for use with Straight Talk $45 and T-Mobile $30 plan, and here in Los Angeles, we are getting H+ speeds.

--my belief is that you must be in a REFARMED TMobile region to obtain HSDPA speeds
What is the $30 T-Mobile plan?

I think if you go to the network lock menu and tap perso sha256 info, you'll get a 1 if lock is enabled, 0 if it's disabled.

Here's an idea if you really want to retaliate or protest the above Joker. Just create an eBay Buy-it-now listing for 5,000 or whatever number priced at least 94 cents each which is the minimum start price that should earn you a penny profit for each purchase (gotta pay for your time in finding, sharing, and listing the information). On your listing, let people know that you are giving away the unlock code for free and their purchase will support your cause or whatever. You will get many buyers because you are only charging 94 cents. Second option is to do charity and contribute $0.50 into a Buy-it-now listing and publicly post this information to your listing for 30 days. Set the buy-it-now price to a ridiculously high price so no rebelers try to end it by buying-it-now. Problem solved. Cool

Btw, I don't own these devices but I repped you for sharing. Smilie

Didn't work for me. I have a T-MO Samsung Galaxy S3. When I tried to dial it, I got "Unable to Process Request"
You left off the initial *

It works fine on the TMo S3.

I just did my T-MO G S3 and it appears to have worked. (I have Jellly Bean installed just for reference)

Same here, it seems worked, but how to confirm?

I don't know the answer but: In addition to using my phone in another carrier, I would like the possibility of updating my phone to the latest firmware (like Google Nexus I guess)..

Those who can confirm that their phone is unlocked, can they confirm this setting as well;

SHA256_ENABLE_FLAG [0]

if so, I would assume that my phone is unlocked woot
