    Just joined the HTC family not too long ago, and I love what i've got right now!

    But I will be traveling abroad for the next two months, I wish to carry this phone with me and use it
    with a different carrier by changing to another SIM card. But obviously, AT&T don't allow it.

    I've been searching for a tutorial online about unlocking the phone, there're several vids that explaine it, however they're all linked to a website that requires a payment for at least $30.

    I wonder if there's a way aroud the system and to simply unlock my phone on my own rather than subscribing to a site that I don't really trust. Please help!

    Much appreciated!!!

    You root the device. That way you can change your APN settings when you switch to another carrier.

    If you want, sign up for XDA Developers and they can help as well.

    The only way to unlock it for free is to ask AT&T. They normally want you to wait 6 months or more (of service) before doing it.

    I am investigating some paid options and so far came up with 2 reasonable priced:

    Unlock HTC Phones for $13.49 | HTC Unlocking Codes to Free Your HTC Phone $13.95
    Unlock Your Phone Today $8.99

    Others indeed range between $19.99 and $36.95

    Best of luck!

    Honestly, I would just root it. It's free and relatively painless to do. Plus you can do a lot more when you do root it. Paying to do it is nuts IMO.

    I unlocked my Inspire 4G with Unlock your HTC INSPIRE 4G PHONE | HTC Inspire 4g unlock code for $5.99 and paid $20. It may be cheaper now.

    Rooting it alone doesnt unlock it. The ace hack kit on XDA unlocks it as well as rooting it.

    Call AT&T and it's FREE. As long as the phone wasn't stolen and there wasn't a broken contract... you're good to go! I just got the code to unlock an HTC Inspire 4G
