Used your solution to unlock mine. They charge $39 for the remote service now too. Did not have the issue with typing slowly although I was careful to type it in so was by no means rushing. Unlockboot.com are the boys, highly recommended, I'd have no worries using again or if you can get a deal on a locked phone buy that and let them work the magic. Samsung tech support not helpful, mines an EU phone (Romania I think) that I did get a good deal on but as soon as they clocked that I was using it in the UK...lost interst big time!! No way it had been hacked or anything it was in sealed packaging and I've done an IMEI check and its a genuine phone, end of as far as i am concerned. My issue was with a Georgian SIM (which is in Europe so why it didnt work on a Euro region locked phone I'm not quite sure...not EU europe maybe??) but fine now.
