How Do I Unlock My Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE?

Greetings,

I'm planning on "UNLOCK" my Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE to be used on ALL phone couriers in the US.

How do I unlock my Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE?

Will there be a charge in unlocking my Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE?

Notify me as soon as you get this message.

End of message.

Unfortunately, you can't. The LTEVO will only work on the Sprint Network. No amount of rooting or hacking will get it to work on another carrier. You would need a true World Phone like the ONE or something to be able to use it on another network. Even then, if the network doesn't use a SIM, you won't be able to use it on that network.

SprintFAQ2013,

Thanks for reaching out and posting on our Sprint community forum! What was the reason for the unlock of the device? A device can be unlocked if you were to go out of the U.S. for travel, other than that, we do not unlock phones to be used with other carriers. Keep me posted on this matter.

Thanks,

Justin

If I'm not mistaken, the unlock code makes it so it can be used Internationally. Don't believe it will allow you to use it Domestically.

The other replies in this thread are mostly incorrect, especially the one from "Sprint Social Care".  If you are travelling internationally, you can call Sprint for the unlock code and they will give it to you.

Or, if you have finished your 24 month contract, you can call Sprint to get the unlock code, even if you do not plan to travel internationally.

Sprint will provide the unlock code.  The code is different for each phone.  To unlock the phone, simply insert a SIM card from some other carrier.  The phone will ask you for the SIM PIN (if the SIM has one).  Enter the SIM PIN (if applicable).  Then, it will ask you for the unlock code.  Enter the unlock code that was provided by Sprint.

Now, you can use your phone on any GSM network, both in the US and internationally.  However, you will be limited to 3G data speeds.

Hi Jorgeildv,


Thanks for reaching out to us. We do offer assistance on unlocking devices only when customers are traveling outside of the U.S for international use. We don’t unlock phones to be used with another carriers. Please keep us posted.

The HTC Evo Design 4G does have a SIM slot.  I don't know if the phone being discussed here is the same or not, but the ones I have (Evo Design 4G) do definitely have a SIM slot.
