Before I order a Iphone - Advice Please

If I order through the CPW, I can pay the £169 get the phone delivered and opt out of activating the contract? is this correct?

I then have to unlock and can I then use any sim including an 02 sim I already have?

How easy is the unlock, I usually take it to a local shop but see people here have done it themselves?

Sorry been reading some other threads but want to make sure I'm not stuck with a 18month contract , before ordering today.

Yes, thats completely correct.

I found the easiest way is to search something like "unlock iphone" on youtube - there are countless step by step guides, and it really is just a case of plugging it in and pressing a single button.

By the way, if your not familiar with the actual software, I used the ziphone to unlock

[url]www.ziphone.org[/url]

There are alternatives so I won't go in to detail, because someone WILL tell you not to use this - use the other one etc :roll: but I believe the large majority of people here have used ziphone.

Thanks for your reply, was more worried about the contract side of it as you usually have to sign something and thats that.. :thumbsup:

No, no contract to pay. When you plug it in to iTunes it asks what contract you would like but after you unlock it no longer does this. I've been using mine with my current Vodafone contract for almost a month now with no problems.

Oh for god sake......

No contract, they will ask for details at CPW thats only to ensure you could pass the credit check (if you were takin one out)

Dont forget quidco - £60 back.

Then follow these steps: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/172914/how-to-activate-jailbrake-unlock-yo
