    Make sure you put .148 onto device. When you install it to pc, then run app loader and select all you need to put back.

    Also when you reload the software on the device you should perform a security wipe to ensure that everything is gone before you reinstall.

    I would then add every application in the apploader except the extra languages. This will put it on par with the phone on the date you took it out of the box.

    Any further questions please ask.


    And Olta you beat me to it again.

    The time for today has not been announced yet. And I am fairly certain you can unlock a device without it having any sort of plan.

    Yes. Once you unlock a device, it cannot be re-locked.
