Is the Cingular 7100g or the 7290 locked, or unlocked? If locked is either available unlocked?

How to SIM Unlock the device:
1. Go to the "Options" screen
2. Select the "SIM Card" option
3. Type MEPD

will tell you if your phone is simlocked or not

Kash -

Here is what shows up when I type MEPD on Options/SIM Card

SIM Disabled
Network Active
Network Subset Disabled
Service Provider Disabled
Corporate Disabled

Does "Network Active" indicate the phone is simlocked ?

Network Active does indicate that the phone is locked. The phone will not work with any other SIM card.
