The HTC Vision smartphone, otherwise known as the HTC Desire Z runs on the Android operating system, and has many similarities to the original HTC Desire. But the great thing about the Desire Z/Vision is the full slide-out QWERTY keyboard in addition to the large quality touch screen display, allowing for the best of both worlds without sacrificing sleek design and screen size.
As great as the phone sounds, it lacks in one area, and that is that it cannot be used on any given network. This is no fault on HTC’s part, its not part of their original design, it is in fact added later to most cell phones by the network service providers to stop you from straying to the competition. However, not to worry, as its simple and quick to fix, all you need to do is gain the unique unlock code for your HTC handset, and a new SIM card not provided by network the phone is locked to. Follow our simple instructions and your handset will be open to all networks in no time at all.
How do you get the unlock code? Simple. Ask your provider. They may be the ones who put the lock on there to stop you leaving, but this makes them the first stop when it comes to removing it. If you have been a long term loyal customer of the network, chances are they will unlock the phone for you in store, or at the very least provide you with the unlock code at no cost.
However, this isnt always the case, so if your network is being less than helpful, don’t worry as there are plenty of other sources for unlock codes out there. Because there are so many, it can be hard to know which ones are the best to use, so to make sure you choose a reputable one, research the company to make sure other people have used them and can vouch for them.
Once you have your code and new SIM card, you are nearly there! Simply insert the SIM into your phone and switch it on. It should ask you for something similar to ‘SIM unlock code’, at which point you should enter the code you were given by your source. Once you have done this, the phone is unlocked! If there are any issues contact your network service provider or the source of your unlock code.
