    Hi Folks,

    Hope you guys are doing well !!!

    I have one question, have purchased Samsung focus 1st generation phone from e-bay. ( I am basically from India) . I got brand new unlocked phone.

    Bcoz, I had checked with 3 diffn't carrier & all were working fine. So, phone is not unlocked for any single carrier....

    Now, I want reset my phone So,after resetting my phone do I need to unlocked it again for my carrier ? OR I got a phone with by default Unlocked OS for India Carrier !!!

    Please, advice...

    Thanks in advance !!

    Thanks,

    hmm im pretty sure once you phone is carrier unlock even if yo do a hard reset it will NOT re-lock your phone.

    not sure about the *dev unlock*

    @Se1fcr3ation,

    Hm.... That's the problem .. I don't want to take any kinda risk.

    Carrier unlock & factory unlock are diffn't thing ? :excl:

    Let's wait for other experts input.

    Thanks,

    - Carrier unlock allows you to use your phone on different carrier

    - Developer unlock lets you side load Homebrew apps and specific file types normally link to beta testing or your own app.

    carrier unlock/SIM unlock is permanent! ill guaranty it.

    That's a carrier unlocked phone - nowhere can I see that states that it's a developer unlocked phone.

    A hard reset does not affect the carrier unlock - I've done it myself :)
