Well, it was about time. A permanent unlock solution is now available for your Palm Pre. It's very easy to apply, but quite costly at 25 pounds per device.
JICTechnology developed a set of unlocking tools for the GSM-version of Palm Pre. They will unlock your device permanently so you should not be afraid of any future firmware updates.
You need to download the tools, install them on a PC (XP/Vista) and buy some credits. Each credit costs 25 pounds and is good for unlocking one Palm Pre. It isn't cheap at all, but might be worth it if you absolutely need to get the job done.
it reads the unlock code (same as you would get from the provider/operator) which you will type it on the device. this makes it permanent
So what? It's a bad smartphone anyway.
The only reason they can garuntee that this will work for all Future firmware updates is that their won't be any future Firmware updates. Remember a couple of days ago? Palm is up for sale. im sorry to tell you all, but the the palm pre is dead :(
