    T-Mobile will unlock it, however I don't know how long you need to have it.

    I'm sure we will be able to get it unlocked within the next week or so when its been out for a few days.
    1 month is too long!

    Just had a read through your support forums, seems another pay first, then hope it comes through....Users waiting over a month for database updates.

    Why not chuck a couple of freebies to Android forum members as a gesture of goodwill and some positive pr :cool:

    Very generous of you, but it seems that this is popular and 3 codes a week renders my chances very low!

    @HTCCode
    Your website does not say that the desire is supported, what is the procedure to unlock it?

    Thanks!

    I don't personally trust these types of sites.
    I think its better just to get it unlocked by the network as then its properly done.

    Great! Can anyone confirm that their desire has been unlocked on this site?

    I will be doing it later this week when I receive mine if you do.

    Would appreciate an update here as to how it works on Voda.

    Cheers

    Hello, thanks for the replies! I will definitely be using HTCCode when I receive the phone. Any idea when the database will be updated so that I can unlock it myself?

    Hi Davec do we still have to follow these instructions for Desire Unlock?

    send to admin@totalgsm.org by Paypal for 25 EUR with the IMEI no included in message to the seller.

    Getting my desire tomorrow.

    Thanks
