Does anyone know where I can find the MAC address on an HTC Trophy? Thanks...

could look in your wifi router 's device menu while htc trophy is connected to it and find out that MAC address.

Thanks for that - I have been googling around and that seems to be the consensus. Yikes!

Has anyone found a solution to this over the last month? My WiFi is MAC locked, so I can't get the device on until I know the MAC?

The general consensus, which is also what I did, seems to be just try to connect to your WiFi. Your router/AP's interface will tell you a certain device is trying to connect - unless there are other hackers knocking on your WiFi that device is usually yours. The UI usually has a facility to allow and add that device to the Allowed list.

Failing that, temporarily disable MAC address filtering. Once your device is connected it will appear on the list of connected devices - then you just need to identify which one is your Trophy.
