I think 3 handsets can only be unlocked by 3 or by cable at a phone shop.

You can unbrand your self. Find a prog called NSS, find the product codes for the e71, use NSS to change the product code to an unbranded model and update the firmware using the Nokia updater (from the Nokia site) and you're done.

I think you'd need a 3 payg sim as they'd take the cost of the unlock from the credit on it. There are free 3 sims around, but you'd need to call them first to be sure. . .

cheers for the info. much appreciated. so a market store that unlock phone could possibly unlock it then? thanks :thumbsup:

Looks like the E71 can be unlocked via cable so a decent unlocker on the local market or independent phone shop should be able to sort it out.
If they're really expensive, ]this website unlocks your model of phone for £15 including return postage (but obviously, you'd have to pay the cost of sending it in via insured post)..

That site also offers other DIY methods such as unlocking the phone remotely via connection to an unlocking server but "credits" (you need to buy credits to access the server) cost quite a lot.. £25 i think..
