The phone is locked on o2 (startup with o2 splash screen and only works on o2) . having tried to request directly from o2 the unlock code as am on o2 contract but getting annoyed at being denied:
"As per our findings,the handset was not bought from O2 directly due to which we are unable to find the details in our database. Because if we gives you an unlatching code and the handset is non O2, the unlatching code provided may not work which may lead to codes supplied not working or locking your phone. Also if its an non o2 handset, you need to approach the supplier for the unlatching code who in turn will provide the code for unlocking the phone."
Anyone know any good sites / ebay to unlock the phone. Thanks in advance
