Learning how to unlock HTC phones is easy and only takes a few steps. Most HTC mobile phones that have a SIM card in them can be unlocked for free.

The advantage of this is that you then do not have to be stuck with whoever you bought your HTC phone with.

There is a unique unlock code for every HTC phone and all SIM card cell phones for that matter, which will allow the SIM lock to be disabled. This unlock code is directly calculated off your phone’s IMEI number. You can easily find your HTC phone’s IMEI number by following the steps below:
