    Hi all. I am looking at buying a Q10. I have updated my Z10 with the leaked OS autoloaders many times. I was wondering if updating a Q10 with say the OS 10.2.1.2228 autoloader, would that give me a unlocked handset?

    Nope. You'd need an unlock code.

    So it doesn't give you a complete fresh OS from the ground up?

    Sure, but an unlock has 0 to do with the OS.

    • If your device was never unlocked, an OS will not change that.

    It does, but the OS doesn't control the carrier lock.

    I see. Thanks for the help. I'll look for a unlocked one.
