The network a phone is locked to will do it for free.

That's not entirely true......reason why network mobiles are cheaper than sim free mobiles is because the networks provide the phones at a subsided price so they make the money back via the top ups.

Unless you have been with them a while and topped up regularly they may let you have it for free, otherwise they will charge you.

Or you were with Orange and they would charge you £20.42 to unlock regardless!

Usually for a greater fee - or at the end of the whole contract.

Top price for fresh legs of lamb.Got one today that was jut over £9.Took most of the bone out and then rolled and tied the meat up to make 2 lovely boneless leg of lamb joints.

Networks are not allowed to charge for unlocking, but unfortunately they do, they will try to make money wherever they can. Once the phone is yours they should allow it to be unlocked for free.

If that was true I doubt Ofcom would be giving the unlocking prices on their website.

It is true my friend, unfortunately ofcom is reactive not proactive. Remember the banks charges and PPI were also contrary to consumer protection laws from the outset. Yet that never stopped the banks from charging them. They were in breach of the unfair contract terms act 1977 and the Regs. Similarly this is contrary to the Competition Act. When i get the chance i will take them to court as a group action and set the precedent, only then will ofcom act. They can only charge what it costs them to unlock and given that they have locked the phones themselves they cant charge unlock fee.

Are you are talking about unlocking after the end of contract here? Because then I agree with you, apart from a small administration fee perhaps, because you're using a call centre agent's time. But unlocking while still on contract is a completely different kettle of fish - the providers subsidise the handset and it's quite fair that they should expect recompense if you're going to use it with someone else, on average depriving them of extra revenue. And that answers the question "Why do people still pay for unlock codes?"

Why dont

Same here. I would like to know. As far as I'm aware, no such UK law but guidelines from OFCOM. Where do these folks get their knowledge from? X)

If you note my first post, it states once the phone is yours. If the phone is yours from the outset then doesnt matter whether you are in contract or not. The purpose to lock phones is to restrict you from using a competitors sim and service. Its your phone and you can use it as you deem fit. However if you are in contract you must continue to the contract price as per the contract, so the company doesnt lose out. It is an unfair practice and will fall foul of the law. Similar to the cashback schemes that were running a few years back and the agents not paying cashback after entering the contract.

Abuse of dominant position? Fail to see how that would apply, please expand.
As for the unfair contract terms, again, please expand as I'm struggling to see anything that would apply to the locking of a subsidised phone.

What i do think is against the law, is the practice of barring phones from all networks for non bill payment. I would love to see someone test that in court.

It won't do me. For someone with apparently so much experience and such a high opinion of himself (which always comes across as faintly amusing due to its irony when posting anonymously on an internet forum), you don't half spout some tosh. How can the phone be yours until you've paid for it? The contact you've signed spreads the cost of the phone over its duration, so it's not yours until the end of the contract because you haven't paid for it until the end of the contract. If you want the phone to be yours as soon as it's in your hands then guess what - buy one without a contract. Surprisingly enough, you'll have to pay for it upfront.

Actually, thats wrong, its what a lot of people do believe, but its wrong. In almost every case the phone is yours from the day they give it to you, you are, in effect, buying 2 things when you get a phone on contract, a phone and a contract.

I'm slightly confused, how can the advice be good when it isn't right?
Theres an ofcom link posted stating charges and timescales for unlocking handsets, they are the regulators for the industry. They think its legal to charge.
Theres someone else posting laws which, as far as I can see, don't affect this whatsoever, and there certainly isn't any caselaw to back up the view.
Why do you think the one with no proof is right and the other, with proof, wrong?

Well let's put it another way then: you are buying a locked phone and a contract. Even if you argue that you own the phone, you don't own the unlocking code. You can do what you like with the phone, but you can't unlock it without the code.

And I fail to see what's unfair about it. Once the contract's up, you have paid for the phone so they should then provide the unlocking code. Until then, how could you argue that you should be entitled to a phone for less than it would cost without the contract?

Um, you obviously don't appreciate that the result of justicesj getting his way will be the end of "free" phones tied to a contract at a reasonable price. I'm sure you'll be the first to moan when you discover this.

I did before you posted this.

It says "Please do not request code for AT&T and T-Mobile USA/UK as 100% of code are Not Found for these 2 Networks". Anybody on EE/T-Mobile/Orange has been successful with this?

Just unlocked 2 vodafone Moto E's.
Very fast delivery.
Excellent service
