    Do you think in it will work on S7-104, US BestBuy/RadioShack version with dual cameras and internal/external sdcard?

    I was under the impression that version already came unlocked?

    My BestBuy 104 wasn't locked!
    They even advertised it as wifi only (idiots!) so what would be the point?

    This has been posted before, but, worth a repeat.
    I think it was pvella that first reported it.

    Did you flash the Norwegian ROM via CMR or normal flash via SD card?

    I was not the one to find this out. I read it here somewhere and was just spreading the word.

    Seems like best candidate was Chan 2011!
    Well done Chan!
    Well that was an historical find!
    I sometimes wonder if the SIM lock is that simple to over ride then why on earth do they bother?

    Just confirming that the process worked for my Telstra 104. One thing that I did notice that when re-installing the Indo. ROM it lost radio and after a reboot took about 5 minutes to re-establish. The test was via a H3GA "3"USIM. No indication of Roaming on the device so assume 2100MHz band.

    Well it was your msg that this rom was running so well on your s7 that convinced me to jump and flashed mine!

    I suspect Huawei had not planned for this tab to be locked, and only added it as an after thought for the few networks like telstra who asked for it. In realty telstra shouldn't have bothered, as it has the only fast enough 3g network in Australia for the s7 anyway. Like pvella, I have also gone back to a telstra sim. The unlocking does provide the flexibility when going overseas though.

    Hi Chan,
    It's strange how we get to find out these things!
    As far as the SIM lock is concerned I can't understand why the networks are so paranoid about it.
    I have now moved to Tri_zet's South Africam S7 Slim ROM MOD, but, I don't know if that would work on the Telstra model.
    Have you tried it?

    No I have stayed with the Norwegian rom. I was worried that the unlocking was not permanent, and have not found enough incentive to try another rom yet. What are the advantages of the south african rom over the norwegian one?
