For those of you who are still interested in the D900i deal on play, check this out.
Same deal as posted previously, but using the Current £5 of £50 Play.com voucher, do this:

1) Go via quidco for your 4%
2) Add D900i to basket
3) Add any 1GB SD micro Card (around £4) or a 2GB (around £5-£6)
4) At checkout, include the promo code: VTWMDLHGPQ
5) Total will around £49 (plus you'll also get a few quid back via quidco), so basically your getting SD card thrown in for free, which I reckon is better deal as previous one.

If anyone has doubts about the mobile's max memory capacity, though the specs at Play say:

MicroSD Card Slot with up to 1GB capacity
- it is compatible with a 2Gb MicroSD card as well - see here. Also mentioned in the 2Gb MicroSD card mobile compatibility lists at Play.

Good find OP, voted hot.

There's a thread on Yahoo! Answers that gives comprehensive instructions for unlocking one of these......how accurate they are is another matter but the guy seems to know what he's going on about.

The link is HERE

This is the codes to unlock it

BACK UP YOUR FILES BEFORE UNLOCKING
This will also bring the phone to default settings

1. First do a CUSTOM reset: *2767*2878# (star 2767 star 2878 hash)
turn off the phone
2. take out the battery and sim and put wrong network SIM and insert a HALF of it,ie half in and half out and slip the battery in behind it,this is important
so it won't ask for network password and shows "Insert SIM" message.
Now put the battery ,and switch the phone on .(phone shows "Insert SIM" message.)
3.With out turning off the phone push the sim fully in. At this stage the phone is still asking to "Insert SIM"
4. Make a FULL reset by typing: *2767*3855#(star 2767 star 3855 hash)
5. The phone should reboot working with "wrong" sim inside.
6. Make a Change the NCK password to 8 zeros by typing: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
(star 7465625 star 638 star 8zeros star 8zeros hash)
7. Now Disable network lock By typing: #7465625*638*00000000#
(hash 7465625 star 638 star 8zeros hash

This is what is meant by sim half in/half out with the battery slipped in fully behind it

Then after you power on the phone push the sim fully in

One major problem with play.com, I bought 2 of these phones about 4 months ago, both of them have problems with the power going into the unit, if i charge the battery in another d900i they both work fine, my brother has the same phone and he had the excact same problem.
As Play.com are regestered in Jersey, they do not come under our UK consumer law, you only have 28days to send consumer electronics back to play.com, they then put in touch with manufactuer, in my case Samsung.
I send the 2 phones off as Samsung give you a 2 year warranty, to Samsungs third party repair company they use (SBC) they THEN WRITE TO ME AND STATE I MUST HAVE DAMAGED THEM, LOL. and i can have the phones back for £9.00 each!
obviously i never damaged them so I disbuted it with Play.com, who told me it had nothing to do with them under the law in Jersey.
I then checked with Jersey consumer direct who informed me that that is the law there, so I'm not buying from them again, was going to purchase a new Sony receiver but after finding out how they treat people, Im staying away.
Decent phone at a good price but do watch out if goods break down.

After the 28days its up to them what they do with you. I had a tv from them that went wrong after a few months. After repeated attempts by samsung to fix it, play.com took it back and gave a refund.

Two years after i bought my laptop from play the main hinge on the screen broke, i called them and they..
1 - arranged a courier service to pick it up.
2 - contacted the laptop manufacturer and had the repair fixed.
3 - delivered the laptop back to me.
4 - they kept me informed of each of the steps and also assured me that if the laptop couldnt be repaired that they would issue a refund or replacement and try to recover my data from the HD and transfer it over.

Guess it depends on the type of item bought?

I'll keep you posted; ParcelFarce tried today (no-one home) and have bizarrely taken it to my local post office (allegedly).

I suspect a visit tomorrow morning will result in multiple shrugging of shoulders and a mobile gone walkies.

Ok, got my mobile, I did some digging on the unlock thing; it seems there's a danger when using generic unlocks that you'll end up with an IMEI code of 00000000 which means the phone's unuseable.

I don't know whether that's right or not but it's not worth it; plus, this one will need debranding to get rid of the Vodafone modded-firmware.
