I'm preparing to root my HOV. I see that there is SIMLOCK option when I go in bootloader. My phone is carrier locked, but I can ask them for unlock code once my contract expires. On my hTC Desire I was asked to enter code once I inserted another carrier's SIM. I don't remember there was this SIMLOCK option on Desire. I unlocked it before i rooted it.
If I go with root and install custom recovery, will I still have that option to unlock? Do I need it or I will be able to enter unlock code on insertion of another SIM, just like on Desire?
Thanks for your help.
