a tenner is a rip-off price in my opinion and im not going to pay for it. This is a smartphone, surely theres something out there like software etc to break the simlock...and i'm just waiting for it. It was easy a few years ago when i had to unlock the original htc touch phone for a friend. ran 2 pieces of free unlocking software in the phone and hey presto simunlocked!
can't it be this easy?
In a nutshell- NO
HTC devices have always been much more popular and there are ROM Cooks out there who will create unlock routines. Most of them charge in the early days of a device, then make the unlocker free after a while.
As Toshiba use a different type of bootloader and SIM lock, and TG01's never acheived much popularity, you are stuck with the need to pay to unlock. There are a few chefs out there who will provide an unlock code, but most charge £10 - £20 for it.
