7 working days doesn't mention the £15.12 fee I have put in an unlock request for my ip5s bought of eBay but using my 3 account we shall see

May I ask is there any link, or what should I mention on the phone plesae?

Cos I've asked few weeks ago and they are going to charge me £15. so Plesae any more info?

It's all automated mate you don't speak to anybody

but doesn't mention about the prices, and I'm worry that they will put a charge in the next bill... then... that's mean I have to pay..

Marz works for three so I presume it's insider info

oh that's cool8), Thanks 'the porter'X) and MarZ:{

I've just entered a request for iphone 5.... No mention of fee, just wait and see what happens?

Done! Thanks OP No mention of any cost for me either.

Do Three provide other unlocking services too? I've been trying to get a custom ROM for Android on my phone and it seems it's Three who have locked it down, rather than the maker of my phone

Three can't lock a rom down mate most can be flashed what phone is it ?

just need to connect phone with iTunes through pc with a different network sim in it

Sony Xperia P. Sony website says bootloader is unlocked generally, but certain models may have it locked by your provider (I assume in my case that's Three since the phone is on contract with them) but when I go into the menu to see bootloader unlock allowed setting it says "no". I can root it, but can't flash it. Found someone with O2 online with a similar issue *shrug*

(that said, a search for the setting on google just brought up a link saying there are mods and roms for locked bootloaders now so... idk)

ETA. just also found a more recent poster saying SIM unlock should affect the bootloader unlock allowed = no thing too so fingers crossed

I'm lost in the menu system trying to hear something related to unlocking. Would someone be kind enough to let me know which menu options, please?

Thanks.

Call and see. NO FREE UNLOCKING,unfortunately.

Even through this thread a 3 employee has stated its existence and another punter has had a refund so something must of changed

Is free, have called them and they said its a new policy from today onwards.

I just spoke to 3 CS for another matter who said they are offering the free UL code to 3 customers who have three locked phone...

I assume the unlock is for 3 branded phones that have been bought via 3 not just any old phone that you happen to stick a 3 SIM in?

wonder if this will work on an ipad?

coupedummy
