    My boss asked me to research how we can flash certain cell phones we get in our store to work for different networks. Does anyone know where i could look to find some info (besides google, am looking there now ) on how to do this to certain phones.

    thanks

    Depends on the type of phone. I know HTC phones are VERY easy to flash (for free too!)... www.xda-developers.com

    There are different methods for each manufacturer and usually with each model.

    A tmobile G1 can be unlocked by calling tmobile. A sony ericsson can be unlocked by going through an unlock service for ~$10. Most HTCs, as I said above, can usually be unlocked for free...my ex-Tilt was unlocked for free by going to XDA.

    Every cellphone will most likely be different...

    Unlocking phones that have a sim card is easy. Just call the carrier and ask them for the unlock code. Ones that do not use sim card on the other hand will probably be difficult.
