    The unlock is on the phone. And I guess the only way to lose it is by restoring

    the SAM method only works with the sim you unlock it with, if you change sim your SAM unlock ticket wont work for the new sim.

    I heard a while back that Gevey was trying to get something going, but I think they stopped trying after SAM came out. I Googled this a little bit to make sure, at this point it seems like they're not really doing much.
