HTC phones are rapidly rising in popularity these days. This is because of its revolutionary and appealing features, which entices users to buy these phones. With features such as HD video playback/recording, crisp multichannel audio technology and instant Wi-Fi hotspot, who wouldn’t be tempted to buy one?

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

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

Fortunately, there is a strategy to have your cell phone be able to use other SIM, without having your phone blocking the new SIM card. This method is known as unlocking.

It's simple to unlock htc hero cell phones, and other phones also, and it can only take a few minutes of your time. You just need to follow some easy instructions and you'll have your cell phone unlocked and ready to use (with your preferred company) in no time at all!

To get this done, you must first switch off your mobile phone and look for the IMEI number, which is commonly located on the back of your mobile phone (battery slot), or on the box (there must be a slip detailing all the information you need, including the IMEI number). Additionally, you may try this command:


This, without the quotes, should be inputted in your HTC mobile phone. This will return a 15 digit number output, which is the unique IMEI number of your mobile phone. This IMEI number is vital, because this is needed for the unlock htc hero code, which is used to unlock your HTC phone.

Next thing to do is to contact 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, most companies won't give you the unlock code, as unlocking your mobile phone means automatically canceling your deal with them, meaning you will not have to pay for their services any longer. In effect, they would lose the cell phone and they would suffer a loss in profits from you. This is unacceptable for them, obviously.

In the event that they do not give you the unlock code, you may always download an application that would provde the unlock code for your mobile phone. Be careful though, as some applications have trojans and viruses inside them, thus make sure that you download it from a safe and trusted web site.

After downloading the program, you need to simply input your IMEI number and have the program produce the related unlock code for your cell phone. After getting the unlock code, turn on your mobile phone, but using another SIM card 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 voila! Your cell phone is now unlocked!

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

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