[Q] Noob unlocking question?
I have a T-mobile HTC One that is locked to T-mobile and was wondering if it would be worth my time and effort to get it Sim unlocked and stay with T-mobile for the purpose of maybe getting the Android 4.4 Kit-Kat update sooner? I read that HTC USA is bringing it out "within 90 days" for all HTC Ones, but the Google Play edition within two weeks and the "unlocked" and developer editions within 30 days. I know I'm being impatient but I am looking forward to the new functions and am hoping that it fixes the horrible battery drain that I have noticed since the 4.3 update.
The phone is paid for and I have already called and am eligible to get the unlock code....
One of my questions is how to unlock it without a "foreign" sim? Can I just by a net talk or other phone company sim and unlock it then just pop the T-mobile sim back in? And if so would that qualify the phone as "unlocked" to get the update that much sooner? Also, would that cause me any issues with T-mobile's network? I know I could use one of the many fine roms here but my hacking skills are nil and I would prefer the factory update, I would rather not put my non existent skills to the test.
Please any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for looking!
