HTC says goodbye to locked bootloaders!

Quietly keeping their customers!

HTC has been an obvious front-runner in the sales of Android devices for a while now, and it makes sense too. HTC did in fact release the first Android phone with Google, the T-Mobile G1, as well as the Google branded Nexus One. Today, HTC continues to churn out high quality, powerhouse super phones, which are among the reasons people like HTC as much as they do. A big portion of these people include the Android developing, hacking, and modding community. Although the quality and performance is great, another reason many modders, which includes a very big portion of the Android community, like HTC is because they allow you to unlock the phone’s bootloader.

No matter how private I try to keep my number, people seem to get my number somehow, in one way or another. This is fine, as long as

TC

it’s not always a prank call, but what I dislike the most, is when I pick up and nobody talks! For some reason, I have to call that number back, unless it’s private; then I wait and hope they call again, so I know who it is. If I don’t find out, it irks me. Then, someone mentioned an advanced Caller ID application available for free on the Android Market called, TrueCaller (with a paid version containing more features.) I jumped on this as soon as I could. I thought this was the caller ID app I was looking for.
