Application unlock your phone:

Download the HTC signed PHM Registry editor:

Run the registry editor and go to the following keys:


Change 00001001 from current value to 1
Change 00001005 from current value to 40

To SIM unlock your 2125:

Get SPV Servicces:
SPV ServicesUnlocker

Unzip all of the contents of the ZIP file into a folder on your PC. Then move from that folder to your phone. Next go to File Manger and go to where you put the file at and select it and run it.

Connect your phone to your computer via ActiveSync (can be either USB or BT, I haven't tried IR) then run SPVServices.exe on your PC and chose SIM lock option on the left, type AGREE into the box.

Reboot and there you have it.


Make sure before you view MS office documents that you associate them with Clear Vue Suite. (its located on the disk that came with your phone). Remember that attatchemtns are stored in Storage\Application Data\Volitile

If you are in need of a program that autolocks the keypad try this out:

SmartSS works with WM5

Registry Edits for the HTC 2125

Change the Start Menu background image:


Change the director in the Value data filed in the BKBitmapFile String.

Change the way the start menu looks (from grid to list or vise versa):

The same key as above but select the GridView DWORD change the Value Data from 1 to 0.

The following link is a thread over at modaco that has alot of registry edits for WM5:
The following is how to setup your phone to use any .ttf font.

Note: The following involves modifing the registry, if you are not familar with the registry or not comfortable making modifications to the registry i'd suggest you familarize yourself before proceeding.

You will need the following:

1. the .ttf font you want to install
2. PHM registry editor. (you can use Smartione but this tutorial is focused on using PHM)

Step One: Putting the font in the correct directory.

Once you get ahold of the .ttf file for the font you want to use you need to install it in the following directory on your computer: \Storage\windows\Fonts in this folder at all times should be Nina.ttf this is nessasary because if the font you choose is corupted or is not compatable for some unknown reason the phone can default back to the nina font. If its not there you may have a big problem when rebooting after performing the registry modifications.

Step Two: Creating the nessasary keys.

On your phone start PHM Registry Editor, then go to the following key:


Now depending on your ROM the following key may already be in this directory, if it is then skip the step on creating it. Just enter the Value Data. You will have to make the FontPath key however.

Create the FontLink key:

In the directory mentioned above hit Menu, New Key and call it FontLink. Select the new key you created called FontLink and hit the action button. Now hit Menu, New Key and call it SystemLink. So know you have the key FontLink with the key SystemLink. Select SystemLink and hit Values, then hit Menu, New Value, String. A window will come up with the header "Edit String Value", in Value Name: put Nina and in Value Data put \Storage\windows\Fonts\name of the font.ttf, true name of the font.


Say you want to install Tahoma. So in Value Data: put \Storage\windows\Fonts\Tahoma.ttf, Tahoma

Leave Value Type: like it is.

Creating the FontPath key:

Now it Done, then hit the Back key until you get back to the Micrsoft list of keys. Now hit Menu, New Key and call it FontPath. Select FontPath and hit Values then hit Menu, New Value, String. In Value Name: put FontPath and in Value Data: put \Storage\windows\Fonts.

Hit Done, and hit the Back key until you get back to the list of Microsoft keys. Then check all the entries for FontLink and FontPath and make sure they are correct per my instructions above. Now exit out of PHM Registry Editor and reboot your phone and voila! your new font is shown.
