Either a free option, or a reasonable likely charge is fine, just want to know that its possible!
Is it a reasonable phone? I don't want an all singing all dancing iphone (well I do....but my budget doesn't lol)

i got mine done from my local market for £15 and it only took a few mins. Most places charge around that much.

I got mine last year and got it unlocked for £10, had to leave it with them for a few hours though

All depends on what software the phone is running if its an easy one £10 but if it's the other one £20.
Best ask what software is on the phone then enquire at local phone or market stall.

An easy way to check if your Nokia phone is SL3 is key in *#0000# on the phone

This will show the software version of the phone.

If your phone version is not a double figure before the decimal point ie. 6.51 then it CAN unlock it done direct.



If it is a double figure before the decimal point ie 59.60 (see the picture below), you need to use the Nokia SL3 then your local shop will have to send it away

its saying its in offline mode and therefore wont let me do that....is that because theres no sim in it?
however i've found the software version in the devide updates, saying v 20.0.012, is that the right one?

Sadly it's a SL3 noticed it's on Voda might be worth trying a Vodacode
