oxnsox: For someone with that level of knowledge and experience, knowingly buying a locked device (that will at it's simplest cost $30 to unlock) in a market full of unlocked devices.... just seems like an inefficient way to solve a problem.
And then to spend the time to try and do it differently...... Not a course or exercise I would willingly undertake. I have lawns to mow!

i like solving problems :) ,and ive just done my lawns :) ,going to be a very hot day ,have a good one everyone.

SpookyAwol: Its more than likely that you can reflash it and clear the lock.

However - I would have concerns about your technical knowledge and ability to do so if you didnt know skinny was locked to begin with. Flashing could end up giving you an expensive paper weight.

Pay the $30 and lesson learnt........

!!! i did know it was locked , and as for my technical knowledge ......15 years as a heavy industrial electrician working in automation and process control ,7 years as a computer tech and owning my own business :) i know it can be flashed  ,just wanted to know if there were other ways to do it. thanks

Just curious as to why you would buy a locked phone which clearly mentioned on the auction that it was Skinny?

because i did ,and needed a really cheap android for a project ,doesnt really matter that its skinny ,just wanted to use my 2 degrees sim in it :)
