Yup - and it works:)

@dnlucifer follow the instructions in the first post of this thread - I couldn't unlock via the site either but editing the registry worked a treat!

...although if you run the checklock.exe app it will still show your phone as locked.

It does get unlocked but not 100%. For example Sprite Backup will not correctly restore your phone if it has been unlocked using this method.

I'm in the USA and just received a c550 + I'm trying to unblock it, but I'm obviously missign something. I think I know the problem, but I'd like to confirm..

do I need a working orange sim card to unlock the phone?

do i need to be in the UK for the orangews. app unlock feature to work?

is there a site that I can pay to unlock my c550, (like i had to do last year with my c500) in case it doesnt work?

thanks

diem

Unfortunately you would need an Orange sim to be able to use the free unlock method as without it you can't install the tool needed.

You can still use www.imei-check.com though

Heya... I'd just like to confirm that our free C500 SIM unlock tool works perfectly on the C550 (thanks nedge2k for the testing) :)

To decert (application unlock) the C550, simply change these keys using the attached registry editor (it's the freeware PHM editor signed by HTC):

HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001 = 1 (RAPI)

HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005 = 40 (Cert)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I tried this on my C550 using regedit and it says "unable to perform this operation when I hit "done" to save the new values? ;)

Any ideas?

Are you using the regedit version form page 1 of this topic?

Just a quick thankyou to the people who developed this tool. I used it on my c550 with no problems at all. Can't believe people pay £20 for such a simple process.

One thing I would say is to go with the Orange certificate unlock thing as it's a lot safer than playing about with the registry if your not sure what your doing. May take a little bit longer to get the mobile number format matching etc but there's no risk.

Welcome to the forum.

First off florin_m's method was the only way to unlock a C500 and I paid £20 to get my original unlocked.

This process is only simple because zone-mr et al have put a lot of work into it and chosen to make it freely available. Had they not done so it wouldn't be simple. Much kudos to them.

Although I have had no problems using the orange OTA method with 2 C500s it just wouldn't work on my C550 so I used the reg hack - worked like a charm, far easier than faffing about with orange! ;)

Have fun with your C550 :)

App unlocking the C550 on the Orange developers site worked first time for me, all I needed to do was use Action Register first.

Don't forget if you are not in the UK or are not using an Orange SIM (in the UK) you need to application unlock using passthrough and not GPRS.

So using the regeditSTG will be the same of unlocking apps by the Orange Developers site?

Is possible to transfer the regeditSTG from a PocketPC via bluetooth to the C550?

Welcome to the forum, You don't replace 00001001 by 1 and 00001005 by 40 - if you double click them they have values and it is these values you need to change.

When you highlight the key (eg 0001001) press your joystick in and it shows a screen with something like:

Value name:

0001001

Value data:

1

Base:

Decimal

Value type:

REG_DWORD

It is the Value Data you need to cjhhange to 1 (I'm not sure what iyt was before I changed it!)

Then do the same for the other key changing the value to 40.

I app unlocked using the registry method on the first page on my SPV C550, most apps now work ok but Sprite Backup will not work, tried removing it and installing it again, tried installing it on the storage card and built in storage, install ok but fails to run saying my phone is still locked :evil:

Anyone now how I can get this to run :)

Would rather unlock it through the orange developer site but they don't recognise my imei, and I tried that orange registry tool but didn't work :cry: :cry:

Please help, I need to restore my Sprite Backup image as all my contacts and prgrams are in that image :cry:

Thanks ;)

Just follow the instructions on the Orange website; it gives you an email address to contact if things still don't work after installing the Action Register tool. You should then receive a security application targetted for you specific IMEI within a day or two.

so just to recap here.

If I bought an Orange Payg SPV 550, can I unlock it using this process then use it with an O2 sim?

cheers

I don't think there's any need to recap. It's quite clear from the posts in this thread (including the thread title!) :)
