I code for business and pleasure. I'm a big fan of Stack Overflow and I wish I had more time to spend on the site..

comment Where Are The Sim-Lock Settings Stored on an android phone?
But @Jeff, doesn't the title (and the mention of "an android phone" in the question) imply that I'm interested specifically in android devices? Of course, maybe this is common to all phones but I though that the sim-lock configuration was something stored in the phone's firmware hence android related. Of course, @Matt's answer proves me wrong.

comment Where Are The Sim-Lock Settings Stored on an android phone?
Any idea why this question was voted down? It's strange this SE site.. I wonder if it's going to actually be successful past the beta with such attitude..

comment What's the reason that the alarm clock isn't working when the phone is turned off?
Not necessarily. If the phone had a separate RTC chip you could power off the phone part and have only the RTC powered. When the RTC alarm would trigger it could wake the phone's main micro-controller. I'm surprised Android devices don't feature this kind of hardware.

comment Does rooting a device and installing a custom ROM SIM unlock it as well?
thanks @Ryan.. that's pretty much what I gathered online too. I wanted to confirm though. And so, where exactly are the sim lock settings stored on the phone? Do you know?

comment Any recommendations regarding flashing a particular rom on a Nexus One?
@Ryan, I've tried. I wiped everything I could/knew how to. And then started from scratch. I reflashed the baseband to 5.08.04, then flashed the cyanogenmod-6.1.1-N1 firmware. I suspect there's another online backup that cyanogen does because even though I wiped everything from the recovery console and the flashed the baseband and firmware upon first boot the phone still had my wallpaper image.. odd!

@Matthew - my Market problem has not been fixed. I just re-flashed the latest stable version (6.1.1) for the Nexus One this morning and the same - the Market craps out every single time. That's pretty major!
