That is the point. It is possible. I said that because I could change the serial in the flash memory of a BB CDMA phone. I had to do a lot work and I studied a lot too, but i did it. And it is a very complicated proccedure beleive me. The problem is that i have to know how but of course it can be done by ourselves.
If they can, one also. Trough the USB cable is incredible with the appropriate software what we can do. At this time the problem to unlock the newer BB models is that the javaloader won't accept these models, that is it.
I could nuke the phone but i could not clear the mep. If you clear the mep your phone will be unlocked. And the javaloder (using MFI) in the older models can do that. That is the goal you need.
In order to do that I just need the knowledge to change this executable. This is a stuff to do by a programmer. Sadly I'm not one.
That is my big problem. I almost sure what i have to do but i don't know how. But certainly my solution isn't just bringing it to someone else.
Another thing is that i don't accept to throw out a brand new BB 8900 or if I have to pay an extra money leaving it in hands of others by a stupid mistake.
Finally in my country there are not the people of DM3 and i cannot send it to RIM either or at least it would be very difficult an expensive.
