Hi all,

I updated the firmware to 1.21 (and consequently the radio too) on my Orange Desire last night and it's now requesting a SIM unlock code. After trying everything and then reading a few posts on here, I decided to fork out for an unlock code from htcsimunlock.com, thinking it would be a quick option.

I put my order in at 10pm last night hoping that it would be with me later that night (I'd read stories of people on here getting theirs between 10 mins and a few hours) but I STILL haven't received anything yet and I desperately need a working phone again! I forgot to include my IMEI number with my payment but sent another email shortly afterwards including it.

For the amount of money they charge for a code, you'd think they'd be able to get the code out more quickly or if not, at least be able to communicate why. How much longer can I expect to wait? I haven't received any confirmation that my order was placed (other than PayPal receipt) - is this normal!? Is there any other way of contacting them other than through email? I'm praying I haven't been ripped off here :)

Also, will I ever have to pay for a new SIM unlock code again in future? I think £14 is a complete rip-off and I don't want to ever have to do this again!

I got my code from HTCSimUnlock.com last week, within 10 minutes of ordering. However, I ordered my code at just before 1pm UK time, rather than outside of normal UK business hours. I don't know where they are physically located, but other sites of this nature are often in India, so it's probable that you ordered in the middle of the night, and I rather suspect the process isn't as automated as you'd think.

In addition, they do say in their FAQ that in 5% of cases they have to go back HTC to get a code, and that can take 24 hours.

Send an email to the support email address on the website to ask where your code is. I'm sure you will get your code - you just need to be patient.

To answer your second question, the unlock code doesn't change so if your phone ever gets sim locked again, the same code should unlock it.

Regards,

Dave

I'm also looking to unlock my desire. If we get a third person then the price drops to ~£11 ! :)

Edit: ooops, didn't realise that you had already placed an order... Still if 2 others wish to unlock their phones let's do it.

When I got mine, after the paypal payment I was returned to the htcsimunlock site where there was a form to fill in the imei and make/model. So you've probably broken their order process. I'm sure they'll get back to you, i got mine in about 90 mins on a sunday afternoon.

Also, I believe it's permanently unlocked, so you wont need to pay again :)

I can get you codes from my local market trader, (think he gets them direct from a friend who works at the call centre, orange and t-mobile have call centres near by) he charges £11.99, I pass every day so am happy to help out if it saves people a few quid who have sim locked there phone. (wish I knew sooner I had a right fight with orange getting a code of them)

just send me a private message and we can sort something out, cant beat 10 minutes service though!!

Thanks for the help guys. Phil - I didn't get that form when I ordered which might explain things, really hope they can get a move on though or at least give me some acknowledgement of my order! For all I know right now, they could've done a runner with my money although that doesn't seem likely - glad the unlocking is permanent too :)

Someone ordered after coming directly from this post with email address: samshuk2[at yahoo.com]
However, the email address is being returned from yahoo as 'invalid user' so whoever placed an order with that email address then please email us through our website because your email address is in valid and your IMEI # is also invalid.

thanks! :)

In my case, I have placed an order on the 9th of June and it's been a week and no unlock code. I tried to send them emails but no reply. What is going on??

I Trust HTCsimunlock.com


I used ebay 190401080600 to unlock my T-Mobile HTC Desire. Cost £8.99 and I had it within a few hours on a Saturday afternoon (should be within the hour for working weekdays). Can't praise their service enough.

Well I do not. They are not replying my mail. Seems like a fraud service to me. I need to get refunded.

Attention! Deceive.
www.htcsimunlock.com paid for the code to unlock Desire Orange. On the mailbox Rishel response that the code is not found. Money, however, did not return. Wrote them on the mailbox, but always comes the same response from the robot.

Why don't you try http://www.htccode.com , they have a tie up with Modaco . And they even tell you if the code is available on their database .


With all due respect, don't listen to this advice. I've had a bad experience with htccode trying to milk me for more money (and refusing to refund otherwise, I eventually got the money back with a paypal dispute), as have many others on this forum.

Tell me where you can guarantee to get the code for Desire Orange?

Well, I happened to use htcsimunlock.com successfully, but I can't guarantee anything.
