Default HTC Design 4G Unlocked for Boost Mobile

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone unlocked their HTC Design 4G phone so it can be a World Wide Phone meaning you can go anywhere with the phone and use it with another SIM CARD so you don't have to be stuck with one carrier beside GSM?

Thanks,

Mike

The Design is unlocked from the factory. You do not have to get it unlocked from any carrier... you just have to leave the USA to use the GSM portion of the phone.

Hi So let's say I buy the HTC Design 4G can I go to Straight Talk or Simple Mobile because it has a SIM Card? But can I use this phone to go to ATT Network or TMobile Network because it has SIM Card? If I can't that means it is still a locked phone?

Thanks,

Mike

Meaning that it will not work on any USA GSM carrier. I'm sure there is a way (maybe) but we don't know yet. You will not be able to use it for AT&T, TMobile, Straight Talk, Simple Mobile or any of the others.
