Hi - I have bought a Palm Treo 750 from a friend in America. Problem is it wont work here in South Africa - it says "Sim Lock" - I haven't got a cable for it, although I do have a bluetooth dongle for my PC which could maybe facilitate communications between the phone and the PC - but that aside - any ideas how I can unlock ? - there is a plethora of conflicting information on the internet - so I thought I'd leave it to the experts. Thanks :-)

Hi

Thanks for the answer(ish).

But as I said, is it possible without the cable?

Both the links you sent required a cable - and the first  (free) one was riddled with contradictions etc.

If you can't help it's fine - I'll just ship it back to the experts in England -but then I have to wait two weeks for it to get there, 2 minutes whiles they sort it, then two weeks for it to get back...

Thanks

Thanks :-) - They don't sell them over here so I've decided to stick with my old Motorola Razr.

My 8 year old daughter loves the Treo though - uses it to play 'bubble pop' - highest score 406 to date !!!

Thanks for your help, and best regards.
