    What is an RPL file and why do I need one?

    I'm trying to find out what RPL files are and why we need them.

    Over on the GSM-forum (where the UST-PRO II box is supported) I can't get anyone to answer--but some sleaze saw me ask this question and PM'd me --"I sell it to you cheap!"

    Sell me what? Can't tell me what it is, but you'll sell it to me? Do my posts sound THAT stupid?

    All I've found out is that they can come from .ASK files--but that seems to be a Nokia function, not a Samsung one.

    Anyone here familiar with this?

    Part of the problem is that "RPL" is an abbreviation used in a lot of different applications, but there is one related to programming cell phones and their IMEI codes.

    Read Provider Lock File

    Remove Provider Lock File

    Read Phone Log file

    Most require you to use another program to run and download the LOG File created and send them to get read and it spits out a file to use with UST-Pro II to unlock your phone. At least that's what I've read along the way.
    If you feel that you have to correct some of my posts for my capitalization of some of my words, then just bear with it. It's just a discussion forum where some may be limited by time to answer in well-versed and eloquent sentences.

    I already got a PHD (Plain High School Diploma) so ignore my style of writing and I'll ignore your ignorance.

    Subject: You can read this-trust me!

    When asked if I see the glass half empty or half full, I responded I see just a glass of water.
    Now you know how I think.

    OK! That gives me another clue as to what RPL files are all about! Now I'm going to make the leap that the .ASK files are Nokia's version of the log you mentioned.

    So....you need to dump the log to get a pgm that interprets it to give you the Remove Provider Lock file.

    BTW, when I see a half a glass of water I think:
    1) Yum, I'm no longer thirsty--I drank half of that.
    2) Yum, I'm gonna drink that
    3) Yuck...that's been sitting too long--I'm dumping it out!

    An engineer thinks: That glass is twice as large as it needs to be....
