I have incredible news here at UnlockStreak! I tested our UnlockStreak Activations for iTunes on the new iPhone 5 from AT&T and I officially confirm that the unlock went through and is permanent.
How It Works:
If you want to unlock your iPhone from AT&T permanently, your phone absolutely must be locked to AT&T or else the unlocking will not go through correctly when you are trying to unlock your device.
To be on the safe side, you can have us check for free whether your iPhone is really from AT&T and whether it is locked or unlocked. Likewise, even if your iPhone is not from AT&T, we'll still do the lock and carrier test on it for free too.
Send your IMEI number to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us to check the carrier status. We will reply within 24 hours 7 days a week.
Back in Spring 2011, we saw leaked prototype pictures of the Streak Pro, which was expected to be a tablet device. But yesterday, at Softbank Japan’s 2011 Winter – 2012 Spring conference; I was surprised to see something very different indeed.
Journalists, Streak fans, and many others alike gazed at its crystal clear qHD (960x540) display, which presents itself through rock solid Gorilla Glass. Touch the Streak Pro and you’ll immediately get a feel for how much DELL emphasized on high-end hardware on this unit. Take a look at the videos below (courtesy of Gigazine):
The super organic EL display (up to 16 million colors) shows wonderful contrasts and a wide viewing angle. It has strong visibility even at daylight. While the display is certainly candy to the eye, it isn’t the only thing the next generation Streak has to offer. Let’s zoom in on its other best features:
When DELL strikes back, I was hoping it wouldn’t be a generation behind the iPhones and Androids of today. And DELL’s coming on strong with this one. We’re looking at a proper 1.5GHz Dual Core Qualcomm processor, allowing you to run multiple applications and heavy video media without slowing down the experience of fast touch response! Although Android 2.3 Gingerbread is nothing new, it is sufficient to power the device at maximum speed.
An 8 megapixel anti shake camera can be found on the back, while the front camera sports 1.3 megapixels, allowing you to comfortably make video calls. Ok….we’re beginning to see for whom this device was made for.
The DELL Streak Pro 101DL comes with DELL’s own cloud service called SyncUP (powered by Nero). With SyncUp, you can store your entire multimedia collection online and you can access it from your Streak or share between computers. To make your browsing experience flawless, Stage 2.0, (DELL’s interface to browse through media content) will take the lead on the Streak Pro. 2GB of free storage is included for SyncUP but if you want more, you have to upgrade and pay an additional fee. DELL is trying to upsell on services. This is nothing new as we know this to be a DELL standard practice in the PC business.

The Streak Pro will be launched in January 2012 under the alias Softbank 101DL in Japan. I actually suspected it to be Japan first because the land of the rising sun is the land of the Streaks indeed. Unlike in the USA, in Japan the Streak 5 is still a huge success today. Release dates for the US, Europe, and the rest of the world are yet to be announced.
If the Streak Pro comes locked, it will be locked to Japan’s carrier Softbank. Back in 2010, Japan’s Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry has proposed to all national carriers to provide SIM unlocked devices to the market in the attempt to increase competition; thereby forcing lower plan rates for consumers. NTT Docomo, Japan’s largest network favored the idea whereas Softbank was against it at first. During a conference in June 2010, most carriers ended their resistance to the idea of offering unlocked cell phones. The trend is therefore toward SIM unlocked phones but it isn’t clear which devices and from what time on will be launched as unlocked. The Ministry has proposed to submit guidelines for unlocking cell phones between 2010 and 2011. We’re still waiting….
If the Streak Pro comes locked, you can be rest assured that we will add it to UnlockStreak’s Dell Streak Unlocker software line up. By using our software, you can easily unlock the Streak Pro at home using a standard USB cable.
The DELL Streak Pro is made for people who enjoy multimedia. And to deliver a superior viewing experience, DELL emphasized eye candy and hardware all the way. It has a brilliant display, a turbo fast processor, a good camera, and a way to store all your pictures, videos, and music. The Streak Pro is a high status high end device for premium user fun.
What do you think? Will this be the best DELL phone ever?
