I think you'll find the shops just chip the sim. not sure it can be unlocked other than out of contract from the dealer

check the phone first

if it's a branded Orange phone then it's locked. If it's not an orange branded one chances are it's already unlocked. Try another sim in it to see.

No I decided to not get one as they have slower CPU than all of my n95's.

If I find one cheap enough I might get one but really I got too many phones already and only 1 friend :lol

maybe update firmware and only install stuff to memory card rather than phones internal memory (not sure I mean the 16gb though) maybe stick a mem card in as well and run/install stuff from that. be sure to exit apps properly hold left square button in to see whats running well the equivalent button on n96 left of middle navi

accelerometer sensors might be enabled out of the box with the n96 --- n95 had them hidden in firmware . like ipod tilt mechanism for landscape portrait etc.

turn off wifi scanning and bluetooth when not in use --- they kill the battery.

search google for some symbian forums to look for cool apps

I used to do that to get optimum and discharge but gave up when really did not notice any difference in battery life

charging circuit once beeps are heard really should be off.

You're welcome and have fun with your mobile find lots of free wifi spots with no WEP.

take out GPRS internet access settings from sim card providers (settings that they may send you or are already stored in phone under access points)
