Re: [OT] 6820 Phones, ENS & locks
Unlocking only allows you to use other providers SIMS

One question: I have no menus that allow me to see what network I'm on or to switch. Is this one of the advantages of unlocking a phone? Or is that just to be able to use other provider's SIM's? Finally, if I unlock a Cingular phone and continue to use it on the Cingular network, am I taking any risks of messing things up?
You are unable to switch to other networks because the SIM card is set to not allow that.
If you unlocked your phone, you wouldn't risk messing anything up, aside from possibly breaking your phone when you first try to get it unlocked
for more information on unlocking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or check the howard forums forum for your provider
They didn't offer any other solutions? Odd.

Just call cingular technical support, she said that V600 is not ENS enable but V400 is so, by putting in the 64K SIMS in my wife's V400 might help the matter, but not my V600. Is that true? I also ask that is the Nokia 6230 and ENS phone and she said yes. Ultimally, she told me to go to a nearest cingular store to see weather 64K SIMS will help with my siutuation. She also said that my 32K SIMS cannot be override to "prefer" the blue network I don't know how true is that.
All Motorola V600's sold by Cingular are not ENS capable
Some Motorola V400's sold by Cingular are ENS capable
Some Nokia 6230's sold by Cingular are ENS capable
Cingular can't tell a phone number using a 32K SIM to prefer blue: True
If your Moto V400 is ENS capable, putting a 64K SIM into it and having Cingular Color Swap you to Blue will cause your phone to prefer Blue towers first, then Orange.
