FCC documentation show CDMA/ GSM Touch Pro 2 has US GSM disabled


Bad news for Windows Mobile fans hoping to use the dual mode Sprint Touch Pro 2 to roam on AT&T or T-Mobile.  According to a recent FCC filing for the device the device will be SIM locked via its firmware to forbid any use on these local networks, meaning it will only be of use overseas.

While the intention is quite clear, and the functionality of the device will remain intact for overseas use, it must still be disappointing to have the potential of the device hobbled in this way.

Here’s hoping the PPCGeeks lot will be able to figure out and remove this unnecessary obstacle.
