HTC Allowing Unlock Of HTC EVO 3D – Where Are You, Moto?

Users can now use the HTC site to unlock their HTC EVO 3D. Usually you would not hear us say this but, “This isn’t fair!” Motorola needs to be looking at this and start taking some serious notes. Looks like we were right about our previous assumption that the EVO 3D would be next, followed by T-Mobiles U.S. Sensation 4G. Lucky, punks.

At the first sign of a Verizon HTC device being unlocked, you will all be the first to know, and we will have a wonderful celebration. Anybody here own an EVO 3D? Time to unlock the beast?

Cheers Dave!

    I and my friends happened to be following the excellent tactics found on the blog then all of a sudden came up with a terrible feeling I had not expressed respect to the site owner for those secrets. The young boys are actually for this reason passionate to see all of them and already have clearly been loving those things. Thank you for turning out to be simply accommodating and for having certain remarkable things millions of individuals are really desperate to be aware of. My very own honest regret for not saying thanks to you sooner.

    I have a EVO 3D. I left verizon for sprint when this phone came out (I had an OG Droid). Let me tell you something I love this phone and now even more with an unlocked bootloader. I won’t lie I miss my Droid but sprint is been nice to me. They give me $125 port in credit, the sprint employee hook me up with his employee discount(-25% on the calling plan). The costumer support are always nice and helpful. On the other hand I don’t miss verizon. When I call them to ask how much my ETF was they ask me if why do I want to terminate my plan? I explained all the perks sprint was offering to me and they remaind me that they had the best coverage (true) and the best phone line up(yeah right) and that’s it they didn’t even try to retain me after been a costumer for 11 years. Sorry for the wall of text.

    I have to express thanks to you just for rescuing me from such a incident. Right after researching through the world-wide-web and obtaining ideas that were not beneficial, I believed my life was over. Being alive minus the strategies to the problems you have fixed all through the article content is a critical case, and ones which might have adversely affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your site. Your personal training and kindness in dealing with the whole thing was vital. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a solution like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for your specialized and results-oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to refer your web blog to any person who would like tips on this matter.

    LOL, Verizon allowing an unlocked device on their network when they have a choice (they haven’t had a choice with Honeycomb tablets and didn’t with the original line up of Android phones).

    I’m hoping now that Google owns Motorola they will lean on them just enough to speed up the bootloader unlock process but I’m pretty sure that’s just a pipe dream, lip service that Motorola is paying to people who care until they forget about. It took HTC like what, a month, month and a half to go from locking their bootloaders, to saying they would unlock them to a solution for some of them?  Motorola has been pretty much silent the whole time.

    I just paíd $22.85 for an íPad 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.78 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $625 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.

    i’ve been asking the same question ever since sony ericsson started to offer bootloader unlocking. Also, sony ericsson got into the android game in a poor way (x10 shipped with 1.6 in 2.1 days). SE and HTC know what they are doing, Motorola does not. I love my Milestone (CM7) but it was my first and last Android Moto phone. 
    Now I, as many others are thinking, maybe, just maybe, the Google deal will change this stuff with Moto and bootloaders./end huge comment.

    At this point, I don’t think anyone should be surprised if Verizon prevents this on their phones.Verizon’s been a real dick recently; between downgraded data plans, over-priced smartphones, and worsening customer service.

    I’ve been very pleased with my Incredible and once my current contracts soon up, my next phone is definitely going to be an HTC, but this time on Sprint.

    Motorola was too busy being bought out by Google.

  • tanknspank

    Jcase already had a Thunderbolt hboot on hand that is unlockable via htcdev.com. Who knows, maybe the next update to Gingerbread (if ever) will bring that functionality to a Verizon phone.

    Verizon has unlocked phones, moto doesn’t

    I’m stuck between the Droid HD, the Droid Bionic, the HTC Vigor, and the Samsung Galaxy S II. I want a dual-core phone, with the ability to root, a decent FFC, a beast of a back camera, 4G LTE, and a screen that melts my eyes at night.

    I’ve stuck with my OG Droid overclocked to 700 mHz running CM7. I love my phone, but I want a phone I can somewhat “future proof”, meaning after I get it, it won’t be obsolete in 3 weeks like my Droid was when I got it. The Droid Incredible launched 3 days before I got mine, the X was already out, and the 2 was a couple of months away.

    /rant.off

    Anyways, I just want a fast, sleek 4G phone that I can utilize without it crashing.

      the bionic is basically here and the others are vapor ware. the bionic will be a solid phone for a while so it will be a good choice. 

  • Anonymous Coward

    I already unlocked my 3D with Revolutionary weeks ago it seems…
    Updated today to the latest OTA -hboot. Installed Android Wireless Tether 3.0Beta3 and enjoying my wonderful (albeit slower than LTE) unlimited 3G/WiMax4G coverage in silicon valley…
    But yeah, that’s a pretty sweet deal HTC gave us.

    I’m pretty sure it’s Verizon at this point, and not Moto that is cockblocking the unlocking of Moto bootloaders. Look at HTC now.. unlocks announced for devices on the major carriers except Verizon. No HTC+Verizon unlock in sight. Consider the common denominator.

    • Adam Elghor

      well why doesnt moto unlock other carriers bootloaders then

    • Tony Allen

      Why do you say that? If that were true, why does Verizon sell other easily unlocked or already unlockable phones?

    You guys seem to forget that it’s not up to Motorola alone… The wireless carrier is the one calling the shots…

    I am so over the unlocking thing. We all waited for GB like it was the second coming and it’s been riddled with bugs for many users. I am actually over the Droid X that I still have 16 months of contract with……I am f*cked.

    • Anonymous

      I’m confused…You say you are “so over the unlocking thing” and then say that you hate the bugs that come with the OTA’s…if you rooted your phone you wouldn’t have to deal with those OTA’s or the bugs that come with them…

      • Anonymous

        True, he would only have to deal with the bugs from the custom ROMs that he loads which only get 1/100th of the attention that bugs from manufacturers get because everyone hates the manufacturers but loves the devs and act like they are gods.

        • GotSka81

          I think the point is he would have the option to choose what bugs he can cope with rather than being locked into one software set.  The plain fact is that we own our phones, whether it’s subsidized or not…Verizon doesn’t take your phone away if you cancel your contract, they simply slam you with a fee…so the user is the owner.  I, for one, believe in a user’s right to choose what he wants to do with his phone (within the law) and locked/encrypted bootloaders run opposite of that belief.

        • Cineslr

          Custom roms aren’t the only way to go when you root.  I use stock 2.3.5 on my slightly o’clocked OG droid and it hardly ever has an issue and is actually quite snappy.

    Maybe we’ll get lucky and the HTC Thunderbolt will be the first VZW device to get unlocked hence why the Gingerbread update has been delayed??!!

    I’ve given up on Moto. I’m looking at the Vigor as my next phone.

      Who knows with the google acquisition, maybe we will see manufacturer-supported unlocking on a droid, maybe even the return of blur-free droids?
