Phones unlocked by Chevron Labs have expired

Right on schedule, Chevron Labs has expired all unlocked phones. They announced a while ago that Chevron Labs would be shutting down, and free App Hub accounts would be given to anyone who bought tokens.┬áIf you have an unlocked phone, and you didn’t choose to get an App Hub account, your phone will be re-locked next time you plug into Zune. I other words, don’t plug into Zune unless you absolutely must.

It’s unfortunate that Chevron Labs couldn’t stick around, but at least they gave us plenty of warning. There are other ways to unlock phones, but you’ll either have to pay for it or not be afraid to really tinker. Did anyone get a free App Hub account?
