    Not a how to, but on the vendors end? I think i saw a thread about it before, just can't find it now...just figured I would look in to considering I am waiting for my pearl to be unlocked. (For the code that is)

    every phone has a diff code so the cell provider has to contact the manufact and wait for the reply

    actually when a vender lock is applied by a cell phone carrier, it in effect sets up the phone a certain way and disables certain features and options therefor making it meat the carriers specs. Essentially when the vendor lock is applied the phone is no longer full featured. When a GSM phone leaves thier manufacturer they will work with any GSM carrier. they then go next to the carrier IT depart me to have the vendor lock applied and lastly they make there way to the store shelves.
