Mine is unlocked, but was supplied by Openreach. The unlocked firmware is claimed to have no settings changed other than enabling the "dead" port and enabling telnet and GUI access. (if you load the dual version).
Mine does support G.INP.
Bearer: 0, Upstream rate = 14989 Kbps, Downstream rate = 59500 Kbps
Bearer: 1, Upstream rate = 0 Kbps, Downstream rate = 0 Kbps
The Bearer 1 means it is enabled on the line and in use. The zeros are because it gets a tiny amount of bandwith, 200bps I think, so is rounded down.
Unlocking really is dead simple. The most difficult bit is setting the computer you do it from temporarily to the suggested xxx.xxx.xxx.100, though I'm not sure that is actually necessary as long as it is on the right subnet.
And that's only difficult if it's so long since you had any need to go into your network card settings that you've forgotten where they are. Like I do. Each successive version of Windows seems to hide them a bit deeper, even though the settings page when you get to it hasn't changed since Win 3.1 I don't think.
It is a good idea to unlock it, as that's the only way you get access to the line stats.
