I don't understand what incorrect use you are talking about.
SIM lock does mean network lock that won't let you use SIM other than
the one it is locked to.

I do have to admit that my comment was not correct, as what I meant was
not firmware but board inside the phone. I have no experience at all but
I read it on the web. Some people paid some 25,000yen to have their
702NK changed to 6630.
