    For what reason are you trying to SIM unlock it?

    And the screen your seeing above with with Tampered/Unlocked is your bootloader, NOT the recovery. Yes you can access the recovery from the bootloader and if it has a custom recovery on it like TWRP or CWM you can root & flash the device with a different ROM.

    The SIM lock isn't in the ROM. You SIM-unlock the phone by putting in a foreign SIM (IOW, one the phone won't accept) and entering the unlock code when it asks for it. With the stock ROM. Tell Sprint that you're going overseas and they'll probably give you the unlock code (there's a different one for each IMEI, so have yours (it's on the box - the Dec number - or you can probably get it by dialing *#06# on the phone) available when you call them (or they'll get it if you go to a store to ask for it).

    SIM unlocking is by codes. If you put in a foreign SIM it asks for the unlock code. If it doesn't, it's not SIM-locked. I don't know what the various carriers use in the Bahamas, but most likely all you''ll get on that phone is voice and text. The only data radios in it are 1900 for LTE and 1900/2100 for WCDMA.

    If you're trying to get other frequencies or modes, that's hardware - no matter what ROM you flash, the frequencies won't change. You can't change a Sprint M7 into an international M7 by flashing a ROM.

    it goes by codes. For the sprint phone you can get it DSU (domestic sim unlock) for use in the US OR you can get ISU (international sim unlocked) that specific model (i have the same one) you would call sprint and they would give you the unlock code for whichever you want. if it was a newer htc like the m8 or m9 they can be universally SIM unlocked but the older m7 can be one or the other at any time.

    If the phone doesn't ask for a code when you put in a SIM, the phone is accepting the SIM (and is probably unlocked), so you don't have to unlock it (because all that will do is keep it from asking for the code once you put the code in).

    I can't believe no one here knows how to unlock a Sprint HTC One M7 for GSM, or they just don't want to help. PM me for details please. I would be glad to help you, but not those who willingly will not help someone else.

    Hi there,

    Was anyone able to help? My phone is currently a paperweight, because the guy at AT&T wasn't able to get it figured out. I'm switching from Sprint, and they gave me the unlock code, but the guy says it never prompted him for it. I can't seem to get it to prompt me for it, either. I'm really attached to my HTC One (M7) , and I *really* don't want to buy a new phone (i.e., the Samsung or Nokia that are my current options). Can someone please help me with this? I'd really appreciate it!

    I know its been a while for this post, but I tried to unlock the sim on a sprint htc m7. I got the code from sprint, unlocked bootloader, flashed a new rom and still couldn't get it unlocked. I was told later, any sprint htc m7 with an imei number starting with 9900, cannot be unlocked, and codes will not work. If anyone else was able to unlock a sprint phone with this imei number, I would love to know how!
