Yes, I believe this to be true.  I used www.unlockme.co.uk to
successfully free my 7110.

    Richard> Is there free software out there for doing this?
If you check www.unlockme.co.uk, then I think you will find some free
(as in beer) Windows programs to do it.  I don't remember seeing
anything really free (as in thought)...
