Removing the SIM lock from the HTC Panache will allow you to use your phone with any GSM phone carrier or provider. Essentially a SIM lock prevents your device from working with foreign or unaccepted SIM cards. Unaccepted would basically include any service carrier other then the one you bought your HTC Panache from. Therefore, unlocking your device to any carrier can greatly increase the value of your new smartphone as well as make it more compatible with use in travel and other countries. There are many unlock code providers online, but you can also sometimes get a free security code from your current carrier. Once you have attained an unlock code, you will be able to use the simple steps that we have provided below to help you unlock your phone.

- Turn on your HTC mobile phone with an unaccepted/foreign SIM card in (or no SIM card at all).

As far as we are aware the HTC Panache will be available on Canadian GSM service providers.
