I did :-) There are no refurbishments to my knowledge that include changing
out the radio. Since software radios are not widely used, if at all, in
Japan (there were some J-Phone and Tuka handsets made by Kenwood and a
couple of others quite awhile back that used a software radio, but the
performance was poor, and I believe that they are not used anymore), it
could not be a software hack. If you know of any, do let everyone know, as
that would definitely be on the topic of hacking phones, which is what this
thread started off as.
