    after watching many videos and forum threads about bootloader unlocking, i have a question that has not been answered..
    i have to have my sim in the phone and data turned on, fill in mi password number etc, fastboot the phone, coonect to pc
    use the log in again etc, yes to unlock, then i have to wait a week, my question is can i still use the phone in the meantime
    or does it have to stay in fastboot mode connected to the pc, while i wait...

    i know you cannot stay in flashmode, what i need to know, as xiaomi make you wait a week, before they will unlock the bootloader, that means im assuming
    you have to stay in flashmode for a week, and not be able to use your phone, and with its sim in it, meaning i will not be able to use my phone at all.
    i dont have a spare sim to use in one of my older phones, while i wait for xiaomi to unlock, not simple like htc or samsungs.

    No you don't have to stay in fast boot/flash mode , when they unlock your bootloader follow their instructions then go into fast boot to finish .
