That's very promising.  Thanks for doing the experiment!

I understand that you need a cable called a T191 cable.  Its a cable
with a db9 on one end and a 2.5mm stereo plug on the other.  The plug
has tx on the tip and rx on the ring with ground on the ground sleeve.
Any number of programs for *that* *other* *OS* will use that cable to
grovel through the phone's memory and grab the unlock code.  I haven't
unlocked my Cingular C139 yet, but I'm sorely tempted.

I found just setting the wallpaper to "no wallpaper" give me a white
background on the home page which was almost as good and takes less
key-presses.  I agree the Neo needs a flashlight tool/icon on the
top-level screen.
