In this tutorial Im showing you how to Unlock ANY Windows Phone 7 device and how to sideload (install third party) apps.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What does unlocking do?
A: Unlocking “tricks” Microsoft into thinking your a registered developer which then allows you to “sideload” (or install) third-party app.s

Q: Can this brick my device?
A: If your not careful and if you edit the wrong thing in a registry editor app then your device MIGHT become bricked

Q: Is this the same as Jailbreaking for the iPhone?
A: NO! When you Jailbreak on the any iOS device you are simply installing Cydia which then allows you to install third-party apps. Think of Cydia as the intermediary for iOS devices between your device and the third-party apps. When you “unlock” a Windows Phone 7, you must manually install the apps.

Q: Will Windows Phone 7 ever get a “Cydia Equivalent”?
A: I think it will, eventually…

Q: Are there just as many hacks for Windows Phone 7 as there are for iOS?
A: NOT EVEN CLOSE! Maybe one day though!
