    Default HTC Inspire 4G Unlock Problems

    I unlocked my HTC Inspire 4G and put in a new SIM card. But it isn't wanting to read to new SIM card. What do I do?

    When you say it won't read it, does it prompt you for a password or does it do nothing at all?

    I am having this same issue. I got my unlock code proceeded to turn phone off/on as direction specified, when I turned the phone on it gave me a message no SIM card. When I installed the SIM card, there was no prompt to input SIM code. The phone works fine when I installed the new Straight talk SIM card, but I can't use the internet unless I am within WiFi distance....this is very frustrating. I tried updating just the APN settings, but it will not let me as the old settings are there, I don't know how to delete them and as far as I can tell it will not allow me to delete them - because the phone is locked? Can someone please help me!! I searched the forum and this was the only thread that I found similar to mine and no answer was given. I have since reset the phone to Factory settings, but still nothing, the old network setting are there and I need those out. Thanks!!

    Did you get the unlock code from a website?

    Yes, on this forum. I now think that the phone is unlocked...I don't know how, because I never got the opportunity to put the unlock code in, but the unlock screen does not appear and when I go to security there is a feature to "lock sim" rather than open it . I also think I am able to go online, but my phone is so slow now I just don't know what's going on. I get the "X" next to the signal bars and when it does changes to H+ or E I only get 1 bar and it just doesn't stay connected for long anymore. Really bummed about this. Any suggestions?

    Maybe you flashed bad antennas.

    Or, if you didn't mod it, take it to your carrier (AT&T for Inspire 4G, Other carrier for Desire HD) and see if they can unlock it for you. I know T-Mobile does it for free I believe, when I accidentally locked myself out of my SIM, I took it to them, and they unlocked it and gave me the code, which turned out to be "5678" to unlock the SIM's PIN.

    Sorry for rambling, just try new antennas or see if you can relock and unlock the phone with the code still.

    Warning: I'm not held liable if your phone doesn't unlock with the code.

    Not sure I want to try lock/unlocking the phone so I am going to take it to AT&T, hopefully I can get some help from them. Thank you for the advice, really appreciate your feedback!

    If you modded your phone and did S-OFF, you can change them. Some don't work with other ROMs.
