Hi

Has anyone bought a turbo sim (eBay) which works? As I need one for my 6500 and just wondering if these are trust worthy???

Turbo Sim is a sim which you put underneath your sim to unlock it!

If anyone has one lying around let me know or where I can get a cheap one from!

Cheers

unlock your sim? comeagain?

They're illegal in the UK.

Are they? I thought that they contain no code so only have the potential to be illegal - like a console modchip... Where did you get information about their legality?

Yes it goes underneath the sim and it unlocks the phone, well actually it doesnt unlock it but makes it work on other networks and can be used in other phones!

me? did I write that? lol

ok so I was a bit hasty, it's a grey area, you're right they aren't illegal to own but once you use them it gets a bit tricky. It is illegal to modify/tamper with a phone's IMEI in the UK and there are questions over whether their use to override the phone's software is illegal too, just be careful I say.

Lol, that is funny. Spreading FUD or what

illegal is total bull, i sell these regular and never had any problems with them they work well and a great way to unlock phone without voiding any warranty. They have absolutly nothing to do with the Imei at all it just tells the phone the correct sim is in it even though its not.

No you dont have to cut anything I think??? Just place it under the sim!

Think the new ones dont require your own sim to be altered in anyway!

Anyone got one lying around?

^^ same as all tubo sims!
