Good spot, thanks. Voted hot...

Good deal, thanks sohood :)

[COLOR="Navy"]Seems a good deal compared to black version also available on site.
Only problem is in description. Presume the sizes and weight are the complete package [box] - otherwise phone would be size of proverbial brick. Heat still added for between the lines.[/COLOR]

Just to add that I had a nightmare trying to get my RZR unlocked, as all the normal places couldn't do it (or wanted a lot more) - so be aware.
#12
thanks some good questions --hardly any phones unlocked
i bought a sony one and went round bournemouth-- guess what
every store asked how i got it so cheap--hotdeals said i
can i buy yours i love this phone etc
cost to unlock -- a bargain price of £30---normally 45
so i sold the phone

no no noo - daughter still loves it
#13
If you want an unlocked PAYG phone your best best is Carphonewarehouse. They often use unlocked phones for PAYG. If they bring the phone out in a box without operator logos and no SIM INSIDE the box then you should be OK.

You paid £30 to unlock a W810i?!

"Bargain Price"?!

I unlocked mine FOR FREE thanks to the info on HUKD.
#15
My phone gone tit up,its an O2 payg,will the sim go straight in this.
#16
Just to keep Rodman happy....

So is it unlocked then?

Tell me!

Unlocked or not?

Locked or unlocked?

If locked can it be unlocked?

If unlocked can it be locked for those of us who read the Telegraph and don't like that sort of thing?

uuuuuuuuunnnnnnlllllloooooooooocccccckkkkeeeeeeeeeedddddddddddd??????? (for slow readers):whistling::whistling::whistling:
#17
ffs! lol
#18
I'd be tempted by this if it were a V3i on Virgin or T-Mobile
#19
FWIW, a truly AWFUL phone, but a good price, nonetheless!
#20
In my experience “we have 4 Tesco mobiles in our office and none of them will accept any O2 sims payg or pay monthly. But you can put a Tesco sim into a O2 phone
#21
Great phone - been using a v3 since it came out until I got the new version - RAZR2. Wish i'd stuck with the original really. Only problem with it is the ****** default bluetooth support but you can install other programs that get 'round this.

Anyway, I unlocked my latest v3 (about 9 months ago) through this site...

» GSMLiberty

Costs $25 (~ £12.50) and they just email you a link to download a program which unlocks it. You do need a USB -> MINI USB cable however but some V3s come with them now or they are a couple of quid off eBay.

There are some other sites which offer unlocking for cheaper (saw one for £6) but I actually used gsmLiberty so I know it works. A lot of these sites have scam written all over them.

Good price but **** phone.

Tesco does piggyback on O2 but O2 sims won't work in Tesco phones (only the other way round works)
#24
can unclok the phone for free from phazeddl.com or mininova.org just search for 'mobile' minus quotes and click it download and install :D free then

so post the link to the program here or if you have downloaded it - share please :-D

my daft misus just got hers unlocked from orange for £20 - numpty

ps Geemec says its locked others say unlocked, which is it? no info on site , anybody received one yet and tried it out instead of everyone just guessing
#27
Voted hot. I have a Sony K800i sitting in my draw doing nothing as for day-to-day use I find the V3 ideal. Sure it lacks a few features, but ergonomically it's great. (I got my Orange one unlocked in a local shop for £10 - took them 3 mins)

Sorry! I would do but a) I don't have it any more and b) When you ran the program it 'called home' to check your activation code was valid.

As was mentioned above, there appear to be quite a few unlocker packs for the V3 on bittorrent. Try here: www.isohunt.com and search for razr. I can see 3 potential items on the first page of results.
#29
Best way to find out if its unlockable is to check if anywhere offers an unlocking service for it. Or you could just be lazy and post here until someone spoon feeds you.

You can get them unlocked on ebay for less than a fiver. Just do a search for V3 remote unlocking codes. It's just a case then of entering the unlocking code after putting a simcard in other than a tesco mobile one.
#31
is this in store as well?

I have 4 different Tesco mobiles and they all came locked, that’s why I think this will be locked
#33
Beware of virus and spyware when downloading from phazeddl etc. You are better off getting it unlocked for a fiver from a local shop which is what I did.
#34
lol OMG noob if u get a virus m8 been there most weeks never do! tell you what get a decent protection package (spybot & AVG will do it - both free and ok) - however i do not state that i suport or commit illegal downloading just purly that it is an option

silliest remark I have heard so far. If AVG and Spybot were so good all PC's and laptops would have been virus free and there wouldn't be anyone trying to make new viruses. what a joke.

I was just trying to warn people that they could be downloading some software which may infect their PC and not worth it for 5 quid.
#36
Absolutely agree, viruses appear regularly despite these programs, AVG and Spybot are not the best out there at stopping them either, but as they are free they get a lot of popularity for that reason

Yes the latest version of the V3 is a lot harder to unlock, it has to be done by the "test point " method which involves disassembling the phone, the easiest way is to unlock it with a subsidy code which can be bought online.
#38
Just had an email from them stating they have cancelled my order ?????

[FONT="]We are sorry to let you know that we have had to cancel your order because of problems processing your payment card.

Hmmmm, strange, used the same payment method all the time with them and never had a problem before. Also went through the verified by visa ok too.

You've either already bought two phones in the last six months you naughty boy or you have tried to purchase two phones this evening you naughty boy.
Either way you're scum and your order has been cancelled. If you've done the latter then just order again and it will go through.
