Unlock HTC Wildfire S

HTC Wildfire S

This handset was purchased locked to Three, for £159.99 with a £10 top-up and it’s tiny, weighing just 105gs! The Wildfire S measures just 12.4mm thick, 101 mm tall and 59mm wide.

It has a 3.2 inch touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 480, and a 5 MP camera with auto focus and flash. However, some reviews of the handset have mentioned that the camera quality is quite poor, and that the processor is not as powerful as it should be, in addition to slightly disappointing battery life.

On the plus side, the HTC Wildfire S supports Flash video in addition to a number of other multimedia formats, including .mp4 and .wmv (Windows Media Video 9). It’s also 3G and WiFi enabled.

Unlock HTC Wildfire S

Having scoured the internet for a free unlocking method for the HTC Wildfire S with no luck, I tried using a new Unlocking Service listed on Unlockapedia – charge between £19.99 – 22.99* to unlock the HTC Wildfire S and returned the unlocking code for the phone in under thirty minutes, the code worked first time with no problems.

What’s more, if you’re a giffgaff customer, until 15th November 2011 you can get a 10% discount with mobile unlocked, simply use this discount code CODE822GP10. also offer free unlocking codes for over 100 models, see if you can get yours unlocked free by choosing your make and then selecting from the dropdown menu.

Otherwise you can use their paid service with your 10% discount code for a quick turnaround.

Take a look at the video below to see how easy it is, not only to unlock your HTC Wildfire S, but also to get up and running with giffgaff settings. In the video we’ve used the manual method for applying giffgaff settings, however, you can also download giffgaffAPN from the Market using WiFi.
