Unlock HTC Desire

HTC cell phones are quickly rising in popularity nowadays. This is due to the revolutionary and appealing features, that entices customers to purchase these cell phones. With features such as High definition video playback/recording, sharp multichannel audio technology and instant Wi-Fi hotspot, who would not be tempted to buy one?

Surely, to maximize your HTC phone’s capabilities, you'll need to have a mobile operator. While there're numerous mobile partners in every country, there's sure to be a good mobile partner, one that's better than the rest in terms of offers and services.

But, many mobile partners have special contracts on a certain mobile manufacturer(s). This means that should you buy a phone from them, for example, an HTC Thunderbolt, you're only permitted to use the SIM provided by that company, and any other SIM cards will be blocked by the phone and will not be used. This poses an issue to those who want to go to their preferred mobile operator, as the mobile operator that sells the phone they want does not offer their desired services.

Fortunately, there's a technique to have your cell phone be able to use other SIM cards, without having your cell phone blocking the new SIM card. This process is called unlocking.

It is easy to unlock HTC desire mobile phones, and some other cell phones too, and it may just take a couple of minutes . You just need to follow a few simple instructions and you will have your mobile phone unlocked and ready to use (with your favored company) in no time at all !

To get this done, you have to first switch off your mobile phone to check out the IMEI number, that's normally located on the back of your cell phone (battery slot), or on the box (there must be a slip detailing all the necessary information, including the IMEI number). Alternatively, you may try this command:


This, without the quotes, should be entered in your HTC cell phone. This will return a 15-digit number output, which is the unique IMEI number of your cell phone. This IMEI number is very important, because this is needed for the unlock HTC desire code, which will be used to unlock your HTC phone.

The next thing to do is to call up your mobile operator and ask them for the corresponding unlock code. Some companies would be ready to give you the unlock code, provided that you have met their specifications. But, a lot of companies won't give you the unlock code, as unlocking your mobile phone means automatically canceling your contract with them, meaning you won’t need to pay for their services any longer. Essentially, they would lose the phone and they would suffer a loss in profits from you. This is unacceptable for them, certainly.

In the event that they do not give you the unlock code, you may always download a program that would give you the unlock code for your cell phone. Beware though, as many applications have trojans and viruses inside them, so make sure that you download it from a secure and trustworthy website.

After downloading the application, you need to simply input your unique IMEI number and have the program produce the corresponding unlock code for your mobile phone. After getting the unlock code, turn on your phone, but using another SIM instead. The mobile phone will then show the screen where you have to put the unique 8-digit unlock code. Input the code, confirm, and there you are! Your phone is now unlocked!

Certainly, there are times that the code might not work. Should this happen, download another software as HTC and other mobile phone companies sometimes change their algorithm in producing said 8-digit code.

Now that you have your phone unlocked, you can now enjoy the benefits of your chosen mobile operator, without paying out extra.
