To Unlock HTC phones thier are 2 option that we offer

  1. Use Rebel Simcard II
  2. Purchase an Unlock Code

However in the recent months many users who have used the unlock code services have found that the code supplied to unlock is not working for them.

The HTC factory codes that are sourced from HTC work in around 98% of all cases.

However the HTC Hero on Orange UK is one particular handset which has been subject to an arrangement between HTC and Orange whereby the default unlock codes have all been changed by Orange so that they can retain exclusive control of the codes and thus the unlocking of the handset.

The codes were reprogrammed by Orange before Despatch and the default Factory codes that we and all other HTC unlock code suppliers source do not work on these handsets. This means HTC Hero bought from ORANGE UK or mentioned phones have different unlock codes so they will have a full monopoly on them.


All is not lost and these HTC phones that cannot be unlocked by code methods or even software CAN be Unlocked using the Rebel Simcard II.

The Rebel Sim II does not affect the HTC in any other way and you can use all functions 100% like you normally can with an unlocked phone. You don’t loose your Warranty and can instantly begin to use your favourite HTC phone as the Rebel Sim II for HTC comes ready programmed for immediate use and you only need to cut your network sim and enter in to your sim gate to use and Enjoy your phone.
