For those of you who own a HTC One S and would like to use it on another carrier than the one you are currently locked to, you will be glad to know you can easily SIM unlock your HTC One S. This is thanks to an automated BASH script that was developed over at the XDA forums. As such, in this guide you will learn how to SIM unlock your HTC One S to use it on whatever carrier you like.
