Default Unlocking HTC one, failed 10 times

I am in a foreign country and trying to get service. I have was not familiar with sim cards changing before this. So I put in the new sim card and when it was asking for my unlock code for my phone I kept typing in my sim card phone number.....

Then I realized it was the code for un-locking the device. I then paid to get an un-lock code and when I type it in after placing the sim card in it fails every time.

After doing some research online it sounds like if I failed ten times it hard locks. Is there anyway to break the hard lock so I can type in the right code to unlock my phone?

You should try asking in the HTC One forum.
