    I got an HTC Desire ages ago in Korea - I since paid it off and upgraded to Evo 4G until it got stolen 2 days before returning to my home country of Australia
    Wondering how / is it possible to get my desire to accept Australian sim cards so I don't need to sign up for some plan for 2 years to get a new phone
    If it may be possible what do I have to do? Just root and get an Australian desire ROM?
    Thank you

    Hope people still read this sub forum?

    There's a tool for undoing network locks on the Desire (nothing to do with root or ROM) at XDA developers. There are links to it in this forum somewhere, but can't search them up at the moment. I expect that's what you need.

    Well after searching I found that I cannot unlock my phone by rooting or whatever but rather need to "run the utility"
    No idea what utility it is and couldn't find mention of even a name to search for :(
    Anyone can give me at least an idea of what I'm searching for?
    Thank you
