    Can Telus HTC Desire HD be unlocked and work for China Mobile?

    So someone I know visited Canada and bought a new HTC Desire HD from Telus.

    http://www.telusmobility.com/en/BC/h...hd/index.shtml

    Can this be unlocked and be used on the China Mobile network?

    If so, is it easy to unlock?

    Once the phone is unlocked it can be used on any carrier as long as the carrier uses the frequencies that are in the phone, or the phone has the right frequencies used be the carrier. Half dozen of one, 6 of another.

    I'm not sure what frequencies China Mobile network uses (if that is a carrier or just a general statement).

    Unlocking is easy, purchase unlock code from 3rd party online. Put in a sim card other than Telus, and boot up the phone. It will recognize that it is not a Telus sim and ask you if want to unlock it. Put in the code that was purchased online, (it will be emailed to you) and your done.

    Thanks

    So is this phone from Telus GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz?

    I believe China Mobile uses frequencies GSM 900/1800.

    This is where it can get confusing.....Telus and Bell are HSPA 850/1900 (this is not GSM). Rogers is both HSPA and GSM.

    I believe from what I have researched on the Telus DHD, it has both HSPA 850/1900 and GSM 850/1900. So it should be all good.

    You might want to post this question in the Rogers forum to confirm, and I am sure some one else here can verify this as well.

    Vincent9V,

    Greetings.

    The TELUS branded HTC Desire HD will work on China Mobile but NO 3G UMTS/HSPA service, just 2G GSM/EDGE in 900/1800MHz bands. If you have it unlocked, you can even use the local China Mobile or other providers' SIM card.

    In China, there are 3 flavours of 3G: China Mobile uses TD-SCDMA, China Unicom uses UMTS (but in the UMTS Band I (2100), which is not supported by this model) and China Telecom uses CDMA2000.

    Yes, you have to use the unlock code and you can use the phone in any country including China. Good luck.
