Is that sarcasm, becasue if it is, actually do some research on what you're looking into first, instead of trying to be clever .

Depending on HOW OLD it is, it will be either cid 36 or cid 49 (49 were released in the 2nd half of its lifespan). If it's cid 36 it's a simple flash (google davinci as i said earlier), if it's 49 then you can't do it.

Meant its the older model. I know about this stuff. But thanks for the info. Davinci costs doesnt it?

not to check the cid number, just to flash.

I thought phones with up to CID52 could be flashed now?

Check the guides linked toon this page: forums.se-nse.net/ind…447

You can unlock them easily enough, it's putting the w800i firmware on the k750i that's the problem.
The w800i was discontinued when there were only cid36 phones around, thus the software only works on them. Due to the fact that the k750i was a more mass market handset, it stayed around ayear or so past cid 36.
