Info 2 [TUTORIAL] Unlock Your SIM Mode [Buttery Easy Style]

Unlocking your sim mode is very easy in HTC Sprint One

Steps To Follow:

1- Unlock Your Bootloader (Google around)
2- Open your dialpad and dial " *#*#4636#*#*
3- Tap on Phone Information
4- You will see a black screen with lots of things. Scroll down and find " Set Preferred network type "
5- You will possibly see CDMA+evdo or something like this.
6- Click on it and scroll down or up to find GSM only.
7- Turn off the radio and turn the radio on after 30 secs.
8- Restart your device and you are DONE!

Let me know if it helped

This is what you want to do AFTER you SIM Unlock. Good step by step guide and could be used as informational as more detailed and manual way of changing network mode to change network type from CDMA to GSM usage for the time being. I appreciate the gesture though.

This tutorial does more than what you can do in the settings menu, please try being more considerate of what people are doing. If they are wrong give them an informational lesson, don't just call them an idiot and move on, you'll lose respect very easily.
You should hit that Thanks button if I have helped you!

Samsung Intercept -> LG Optimus S -> HTC Evo Shift 4G -> Samsung Nexus S 4G -> Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE -> Motorola photon Q -> HTC ONE

While I agree that the response could have been more polite, poster was fundamentally correct. You can swap your phone to GSM/UTMS mode via settings, and the *#*#4636#*#* isn't a groundbreakingly new menu that's been around on most Android handsets to date. Long and short of it is that this thread is at the least mistakenly titled, although likely with good intentions.

Yes I PM'd the OP earlier asking him to change the Title.
