As people may know, Chevron have removed their unlocker download for WP7 so I thought I'd archive it and make it available for everyone here still:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=JY0ZFVKD


EDIT: Thanks to Cendaryn we also have the required security certificate - the easiest way (thanks to Talys) to install the cert and unlock your WP7 is to do as follows:

1. Unzip file, and attach chevronwp7.cer (see below for file) to an e-mail to yourself
2. Open email in WP7
3. Tap attachment once, turns it into a shield, tap it again, goes to install certificate screen with white letters on black screen
4. Click install at the bottom

5. Make sure registry is modified:

Code:
 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsPhone\ProxyPorts]“DeviceReg”=dword:000069C5
I think the WP7 developer tools from MS does this, but you can add it in manually (it's a 32bit DWORD)

6. Plug in phone and leave Zune running
7. Run chevronwp7.exe, click both checkboxes
8. Click unlock

Excellent video tutorial here thanks to Jaxbot

Worried that Microsoft has relocked your phone? They haven't, look here

[Edit 20th January 2011]

Want to keep your unlocked HTC from re-locking every sync? See here

Hope this helps someone.

Nice but they removed the cert as well - so until we don't have that the unlocker itself is pretty useless

By the way, the easiest way to install the .cer is to email it to yourself, then tap the attachment. WP7 comes up with a screen that confirms that you want to install the cert
