$399 w/o service from t-mobile - I've not back for a few months in the U.S ( and I'm on AT&T on my US account) so I've bought two w/o service via a friend - anybody else? I'm assuming like other t-mob USA HTC devices the simlock will allow t-mob uk sims but anyone know how to unlock yet? The store rep said no...

Hmmm, interesting. Can you use UK 3G on the T-Mo US model? Difference frequency no?

Just to confirm the US units work fine on UK 3G, and woek with t-mobile UK with no tweaking :-)

Some reports claimed that the $399 'offline' units weren't sim locked. Mine are despite being ordered in as 'offline' by t-mob USA. Currently unlocking can be done for $22.99 online. Note you *will* need an active U.S or UK t-mobile sim with a data connection to start up a brand new handset as otherwise you can't register a google account and can't use the phone at all other than emergency calls.

I want a brown one now they aren't launching that colour here........feel a bit cheeky asking my friend to swop one...
