    I was getting my unlock code for my Lumia 900 and asked if I could get the unlock code for my Titan as well. She gave me both unlock codes, no questions asked. :)

    What does unlock get you besides being able to switch carriers? Will it allow updates somehow?

    Unlocked: Can switch to any GSM network
    Still branded to AT&T (meaning you're reliant on AT&T to release updates)

    Unbranded: Can switch to any GSM network
    Can download updates as soon as they hit the server regardless of carrier

    I wonder if this will work for the Titan II?

    Also, if I use Straight Talk (ATT Network) will unlocking the phone mess anything up with that?

    I'm not sure if AT&T is unlocking the Titan II yet. It wouldn't surprise me if they were. However, after looking over the connection setup thread, it appears a lot of people are having problems with their unlocked Titan on other networks (T-Mobile/Straight Talk). Many report no connectivity or losing MMS. I will definitely have to double check with T-Mobile about keeping MMS before I switch.

    Thanks. I have been involved with that thread for a while. The connection setup app does not work as intended, and does not even work at all for the Titan II.

    I just spoke to ATT and was given the unlock code...but I have no idea how to apply it. I tried searching and just got tons of unlocking sites, but no good instructions that I could find.

    Is there any benefit to unlocking it if I just plan to stay with Straight Talk (ATT)? I don't currently have any other sim cards.

    It really is a shame how annoying it is to switch carriers. And as much as I want to lower my monthly bill, I simply can't give up MMS. I use it all the time. Then again, I'm also not excited about being on Edge until the re-farming is done. Nor am I sure how being on Edge will affect battery life as I assume the phone will still look for a 3G/LTE signal.

    Has T-Mo rolled out the 1900mhz 3/4G coverage where you are yet? I woke up to an amazing "4G" indicator on my Titan with my T-Mo SIM this morning... I live in an outlying area near Seattle. I had it a few times in city, but this was the first day I had it at home...

    The Connection Setup App even has the right data/MMS settings onboard for T-Mo...

    I talked to T-Mo and the best I could get is 3G in the neighboring city but only Edge at home. I don't think I can live with having Edge at home (or anywhere lol).

    Does this mean I can just call AT&T and request a free unlock code for my HTC Titan II?

    Yes ! you can request AT&T to provide unlock code for your HTC Titan ii . If they refuse to give unlock code, you can approach any of the online vendors like ProUnlocking.com to unlock your HTC Titan II .
