Sprint HTC One SIM Unlock Helper



THIS DOES NOT WORK ON THE NEW ROM BASE! I WILL COME UP WITH AN ALTERNATE SOLUTION WHEN I HAVE TIME.

Hey guys, I've put my improving Java skills (thanks college!) to use and made a free app to help you with SIM unlocking your Sprint HTC One. I couldn't think of a good name, but I think the name is self-explanatory I made a post in the General and Q&A threads that involved SIM unlocking, but then I figured it would be best to make a dedicated thread for the app so that (hopefully) I'm not being asked for help with the unlocking process, but just for app issues/suggestions. This will allow your phone to use 3G (HSPA+) and 1900Mhz coverage areas on T-Mobile and AT&T. I'll just copy and paste from Google Play so you don't have to click on a link

Description
This is a simple ad-free application to aid in SIM Unlocking your Sprint HTC One. SIM Unlocking allows you to use any GSM SIM card in the phone, not just the one that comes with the phone. This allows you to save money with your choice of SIM if you're overseas or to unlock a Sprint HTC One for use with a US GSM carrier.

This app will ONLY work on the Sprint HTC One on a Sense ROM. If you're on a custom ROM, it might not have the HTC hidden menu this app opens for you. AOSP ROMs don't have that either. Please don't try this on any other devices, as the app checks the device it's installed on and will FAIL. Please also make sure you're rooted, the app checks for that as well.

Please don't rate 1 star if the app doesn't work for you, it worked for me 100%. Make sure you read everything here and then contact me, I will help you.

If this method (or similar) works for other One's on different carriers, please let me know and I will make this app compatible with more phones. If you want to try it but you don't know if this method works on your phone, contact me and we'll talk about a test version, but I will not be held liable if you brick your phone.

Please post if you have any issues with the app (you can email me a log from the Menu) or if you have any suggestions. For general SIM unlocking talk, this is not the place for it. Please visit the thread in General or the one in Q&A. Thanks and enjoy

Okay excuse the noob questions but I just got the phone a couple weeks ago. So what your saying is that this is a Sprint phone that takes SIM cards and I can throw in a AT&T, T-Mobile or one of the off brand carrier's SIM cards and it will work? I'm assuming 3G only right? No 4G or HSPA+?

3G is HSPA+ on T-mobile and AT&T but yea you can use it in 1900 Mhz coverage areas on AT&T or T-mobile.

I'm not interested, since I don't need it. But I thought some of you fine folks might be interested in an easier way to SIM unlock

For the super lazy, maybe add some code to start the app needed and select wcdma for us. :P

Awesome app as is though, thanks!

On the rich man's HTC, sipping on some Moonshine.
