Unlocking a HTC Legend requires an unlock code and only a few minutes. A HTC Legend unlocked will work on any phone network and is going to be cheaper than buying a pre unlocked HTC Legend from a retailer. By default all HTC Legend phones will come with a SIM lock on them that prevents them from working with any SIM cards other then from the original provider. The free HTC Legend unlocking instructions provided in this phone guide will remove this lock. If you want to learn more about this upcoming GSM phone, check out this article. The HTC Legend is scheduled for release around March 2010.
First you will need an unlock code for your HTC Legend. You can acquire a free unlock code usually by contacting your current phone carrier and requesting one. As long as you have had service for at least 3 months they should not have any issues. I have heard people have success doing this with both T-Mobile as well as AT&T. In exchange they will request your HTC Legend’s IMEI number which you can get by typing *#06#.
You can unlock your HTC Legend using the steps below once you have attained your unlock code.
How To Unlock HTC Legend
1. Power on your HTC phone with an unaccepted SIM card in (or no SIM card at all).
2. Enter your 8-digit unlock code you attained earlier.
3. Your HTC phone should be unlocked and may automatically reboot!
