RSS Carrier + iDENPro
Phone Power: On
i-DEN phones are made by Motorola. They use SIM cards and look like
GSM phones, but they are not GSM. The most popular iDEN network in the
US is Nextel (now with Sprint) and Boost (owned by Nextel)
For most i-Den phones, use the RSS Carrier to put the phone RSS-SIM mode. Then use iDEN Pro.
It is recommended that you use the USB cable for Motorola iDEN phone
when using RSS carrier and iDEN pro. Pay attention, the iDEN cable is
very similar to the Motorola V600 cable, but a bit wider. So be careful
not to confuse them.
RSS Carrier is useful for reading either the six-digit or four-digit
phone or user security code. However, the actual unlocking of the
Service Provider lock is done with iDEN Pro software.
Once you connected the phone, some times it will prompt you to
install the driver, just follow the instruction and install it
automatically. If it does not work, try to manually install the driver
from the directory, which the Motorola RSS is located.
Assuming the driver has been successfully installed already. You should open the RSS Carrier software, click on File
and Read Phone
. This should put the phone into RSS-SIM
Now you can exit RSS. Open the iDEN Pro software, and wait for it to detect the phone. Then click on Script | Open Script
. Open a file under the iDEN Pro directory called “command3.txt” and then go to Script | Run Script
. The phone should restart after the script is finished. Now test with a different SIM card.
For a long time, Raptor Pro was not updated and stopped supporting
any phones newer than the i405. However, recently the Raptor Pro’s hex
file has been updated to support almost all i-DEN phones on the market.
To unlock, i-DEN i880, i885, Raptor Pro (keep in mind the Hex File can
be found under C:\Program Files\Raptor Pro\Hex File) has to be updated
to support this type of phone. Make sure a SIM card is insider the
phone and the phone should be on and ask for a special subsidy code.
Then you should connect the phone using serial cable on COM1 and run
Raptor Pro. It will take few minutes and give you the unlock code. It
should be the first one. After getting your unlock code, try to put it
into your phone with a different SIM.
Some times when a person insert a different SIM and has entered the
incorrect unlock code more than few times, the phone will show “Enter
Special Code, Please Wait” or “Contact Service Provider”. In this case,
you need to wait up to one hour for the phone to allow you to enter the
unlock code again.
