webOS friend and LuneOS project aficionado, Herrie, recently embarked on an unlocking adventure. His HP TouchPad 4G gave up the ghost and passed away quietly. So he did what anyone would do and got a new one! That’s what you’d do if your TouchPad died too, right?
His TouchPad was special though. In fact, you probably read his article right here on pivotCE about getting true LTE speeds on it with an unlocked Sierra 7710 card in it.
Why not just crack open the new one and pop in the 7710 and throw away that crappy “3.5G” Ericcson card? Well, the TouchPad pretty much breaks when you open it. The little clips that keep the back connected weren’t designed to be opened once engaged.
After Herrie contacted, paid for, and was reimbursed by several unlocking services over the course of about a month he finally stumbled upon UnlockFusion which was able to get him an unlock code. The catch? It took 2 weeks but it only cost him about $10.15 USD. Not bad!
Need your TouchPad 4G unlocked? Head over to www.unlockfusion.com and I’m certain they can help you. Or crack yours open and pop in a Sierra 7710 (EU) or a Sierra 7700 (NA).
