    Rooting T-mobile lock Nexus One

    Hi,
    i'm italian boy. I read about the unlocking of nexus one. I would ask if it possible to buy a Nexus One with T-mobile contract, then unlock the phone and use it, without activating the contract, with other sim.
    Thanks for all

    No. If you buy it at the subsidized price, you're locked into the contract.
    You'd have to buy it unlocked and unsubsidized to be able to use it on other providers.
    Do that, and you can do whatever you want within the constraints of the hardware.

    I was under the impression that there is no difference in the phones. If you buy subsidized, then your locked in a contract, but the phone is still unlocked. Even if Google was shipping them locked for TMobile, using a ROM on a rooted phone will unlock it.

    All the Nexus Ones are unlocked. If you buy it subbed its still unlocked. Its just you are stuck with a 2 year T-Mobile contract.
