Get your WP7 developer unlocked for free

We've covered quite a few events, tutorials and whatnots where Windows Phone 7 owners are able to get their devices unlocked - be it through homebrew or via the official channel with developer subscription. We've now received word from a reader who explained how signing up to DreamBuildPlay (opens in new tab) will provide you with a year developer trial, which you can use to unlock your device once you've passed authentication.

We've just tried this out for ourselves, but unfortunately we weren't given a redemption code to use for a 12 month trial with AppHub. While this competition has unfortunately filled up its redeem code limit, we urge everyone to keep the lookout for other events that offer a free developer subscription, should you be looking to unlock your device without paying the $90.

Thanks for the tip TrentTech!

  • how to pass authentication?
  • Just pay $ 90 so you don't have to take any risk
  • My general feeling too, except that I think MSDN subscribers should be granted free membership in AppHub.
