No free codes sorry,
but I believe theres software available for free (or so ive been told), although this would require you to buy a service cable which would be around the same price as getting a market trader to unlock it for you.

The cost of unlocking it would be more than the phone.

What exactly was the deal you got with that phone?

True, would be better recycling via tesco for 500 points or £20 deals! Please dont say this is from a recent contract!

he said free contract, as a retention or new contractphone it's pretty ****.

so I'm interested in the deal he got.

the contract was 10 pounds for the whole year 1000 mins on each sim (there were 2 phones and 2 sims) they put the money for the years line rental in your bank account and then start taking from it monthly. but the phones were **** and are still brand new coz i never use them.

Ah contract credit, like three have done and do, which O2 are doing and now it seems Orange too, hopefully i'll get the same when my 18month contract with Orange is up in Feb 08.

Those 1000mins you go, 24/7 or off peak?

alicom, ebay the phones tbh.

If you have any spare orange sims, throw them in with them.

the phones are worthless. i will get probably 5 pounds plus 3 pounds postage. take fees i have nothing. keeping as spare phone for now. the contract was around1 year ago. the minutes were anytime i think it was 1200 minutes split between 2sims which is 600 each sim.
