    Hi. I have a Hero that was on Orange (latest .66 ROM), but have now upgraded to Sensation. I want to pass the Hero on to my daughter but need to get it unlocked as she is not on Orange. Does anybody know a reliable site I can get an unlock code from that will work please?

    Same device, used HTCCode, Hero was unlocked within 10mins of requesting the code. I even got a follow-up email shortly afterwards checking that the unlock had worked.

    Not sure if you still need an answer, but it's $20 (USD). I just did it and worked fine, very quick and efficient.

    Be very careful. There appears to be a spate of these types of posts on this site and XDA recommending these types of rip-off unlock sites. I suspect most are spam, or are, at least commission recommendations.
