My dad recently upgraded his contract and got a Nokia 6500 slide. He wanted to get it unlocked because he is going abroad in 2 weeks. I rang Three for him to ask about it and couldnt believe what they said!!!
They said that I will have to pay the full line rental for the remaining 18 months + £15 admin cost!!! After talking to the person for 5 minutes he said that because my dad has been a loyal customer for years, they will do it for 12 months line rental + £15?!?!
This cant be right can it? I recently heard that the UK law suggests that phones should be unlocked for free, hence Vodafone are doing it.
Any advice ( apart from getting it unlocked from a shop ) or has anyone had similar shocking experiences?.
