Hello everyone, my journey starts tomorrow!


May 17, 2010
Just thought i'd introduce myself :)

I'm getting my HTC Hero tomorrow, pretty damn excited as i've been using an iPhone for the past year, and can't wait to stop using it. As i had a jailbroken iPhone, tinkering and tweaking interests me a lot, so it's only natural I can't wait to get started with the Hero, especially considering its running a build of Linux. I've only been looking at this site for about 20 minutes and I can already see a thriving and in-depth community, so i'm excited to become a part of it.

One question i do have, that perhaps someone could help answer, I'm looking to 'unlock' my Hero when i get it tomorrow, so that i can use my O2 sim card, how would one go about doing so?

I've seen many advertisements with different fees, but surely there is a free solution to this?

Any advice or answers are greatly appreciated :)
