Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just got one of these phones from T-mobile last night seems there's a patch to fix bugs from HTC but T-mobile havent released it yet anyone know of a link showing how to unlock the phone?
  2. Do you really mean "Unlock", or "get Root"? The former allows you to use the phone with ANY service provider (for which you have a valid SIM!) the latter gives you access to the root directory, allowing you to install new versions of Android. ROM Update for T-mobile branded HTC G2? - Windows Phone @ MoDaCo and Hero, G2 Touch Android Development - xda-developers would be the first two places I'd look. FWIW, you're probably a LOT better getting root access than unlocking the phone as a means to overcoming the problem you describe. You'll also find replacement ROMs, and step-by-step instructions at either of the two user-forums for which I've provided the URL.
