Got this as an upgrade. Do not require it so selling it. Locked to Orange.

HTC Hero Graphite. Brand new. Boxed, but unwrapped in order to get the SIM card.

£320, which Special Delivery postage.

I am not looking for a trade. Just interested in selling.

Thank you
Shipping/Payment:
Bank transfer or Paypal gift (I understand that this will not incur me with any additional charge)

Don't know much about unlocking phones! I'm sure there's plenty of info on the net for this.

Just some info regarding unlocking Orange based HTC Hero's...

The HTC factory codes that we source from HTC work in around 98% of all cases.

Unfortunately, it seems that the HTC Hero on Orange, UK is one particular
handset which has been subject to an arrangement between HTC and Orange
whereby the default unlock codes have all been changed and then the correct
codes batched to Orange so that they can retain exclusive control of the codes.
The codes were either reprogrammed at Orange after despatch or more likely
at HTC before despatch. Either way, the default codes do not work.

All other online suppliers of unlock codes will source from the same place so you
will be wasting your time with most other suppliers too.

Your best option would be to source the code from Orange.

So basically - no unlocking codes for HTC Hero orange phones.. Unless you can source one from Orange directly....

Also unlocking a HTC Hero without that is complex to say the least, i wouldnt attempt it personally.

Other option is something like a 'Rebel sim' which sits in with your sim card and tricks the phone.. Unfortunately everyone i've had of different variety has ended up breaking after a while, most people say they end up breaking after a while.. And at £10-15 a pop, they're an expensive thing to keep replacing.

I believe there are ways to unlock this even if it's on Orange. However, as with all unlocks, due diligence and research is recommended.

Hey don't wish to thread spoil, but it must be clear for all potential buyers that this phone is incredibly complicated to unlock, even XDA developers don’t recommend people attempt it unless they know their stuff.. The guide to do it isn’t exactly short. I work on medical software for a living, and not even i’d try and unlock i HTC Hero on Orange.. And i been install custom ROMs on my HTC phones for years

Plus with the fact there are no unlock codes available for HTC Heroes locked to Orange, they only have one option. Rebel sim or variant to get round the network lock. So that is really the best options for all sellers – although they can be unreliable at times.. They’ll do the job perfectly fine.

With due respect, and after going through some forums, some have got this working using the rebel SIM. Flea bay offers a service as well for unlocking this!
