You know, maybe is not discovered yet by anyone of us, but if the counter can go from 10 to 0 that means that this is a memory position in some nonvolatile RAM, that some internal program can change every time you provide a wrong code. if this is true, which is, there must be a way to do it.
Maybe is a kind of factory deal, but maybe one of all these genius guys can have an idea of what can be done.
I bought an 8830 new, from a local provider in my area. It uses CDMA technology and the carrier uses manual programming. I too am trying to unlock my phone so that I can put a sim card in it. I went through the steps and mine said from the beginning that I had 0 attempts left. Basically this is a load of crap because I am the only person to ever own this phone and not once have I tried to unlock it until now. I have worked for cell phone companies for the last 3 years so I am not a moron when it comes to this stuff. I do have the unlock code but there has to be some way to reset the counter. If you get a correct answer on this please let me know! Thanks
If it's new and doing this to you, that I think would qualify as a defective unit. I cannot for the life of me figure out why you don't just take it back and have it replaced. I know I'd have done that by now.
