Just a warning about the above site:

7.1 Products vary for each phone. Unlock Report contains options for how to unlock the selected phone. Unlock codes are not necessarily included in the Unlock Report. Unlock Reports are sent instantly by email, options within the Unlock Report may take longer. Further costs may also be involved, depending on the options available.

I believe this means they send you a temporary unlock code which unlocks the phone until it's turned off or the battery runs out. You can input the same code again, but you lose any data on the phone (to my knowledge). I lost a few quid in buying from one of these sites a month ago, as I didn't read the T&Cs.

You'll probably have to pay a little over £10 for a code from an online provider such as http://www.thephoneunlockers.com/ - this is the service I used, and didn't have a problem with them. There are others, so do shop around but don't fall into the trap of buying a £3 code under the impression it will solve all of your problems. :)

Thanks for the link, just followed it and paid £4.70 for what I hoped would be an unlock code. Unfortnately the Unlock report I received just details what i need to do to get the phone unlocked!!! One of the suggestions was to take it to a market stall!!!! Well I knew all that anyway....

Buyer BEWARE the "report" you pay for only contains suggestions, further costs may also be involved as I've just found out....:x
