1) have u checked it aint already open (unlocked) as most o2 ive had in the past have been
2) also go to a local market or go to google and type gsm forum and sign up as they sell clips on there for unlocking the handset

Yes i tried my virgin sim card in it:-(
I know there are people on ebay who unlock phones, but seeing as people were selling them on here unlocked I just wondered where they got them unlocked as i want to make sure i use someone that is reliable to make it work.
Don't really want to pay £35 to foneunlock site you listed tho as i've already spent loads on the phone:whistling:
If anyone else has any suggestions it would be appreciated:thumbsup:

or £15 via code generated from the IMEI

fonesunlock.co.uk/sho…red

Don't think you will get it much cheaper then that to be honest.

read the small print at the bottom of the listing - its an e-book.

99% sure this will not work.

Either use the £15 link above or go to a mobile phone shop / market trader that does unlocking and ask - it does look like this phone can be done by a clip.

he he :giggle:

or look on yell.co.uk and call a few phone shops, the independent ones not the main network ones and ask if they can unlock it and how much.

let us know how you get on - always useful info for other

Because this phone has just come out, it has new software
so most places will either tell you, you cant unlock it or it is quite expensive
u shood have really checked the prices before buying the phone and see if it was worth it;)

£35 for a clip moajjnr aint exspensive
for example shop buys clip £35 unlock's 4 phones @ £10 a go and there already in profit

Hi

I'm having the same problem...My bro has given me his upgrade which was on O2...02 CHARGE £35 as it was a free upgrade! But £15 if its on PAYG!

I went to the market and they haven't got the software but next week will have it....

So you should get it unlocked then...but keep us updated as want to know how much you can get it unlocked for!

I went to the market & one stall told me no they couldn't unlock until next week, the other said yes they could & it would be £15 but they then couldn't load the software so told me it would be next week.:-(
The place that Dub1 & Elitom mentioned fonesunlock.co.uk/sho…red charges £15 so i might do it through them.
SkippyDoo - will O2 actually unlock for £15?:)

How do you know how much i paid for my phone? I got a really good deal & my hubby bought it as my belated christmas/valentine's day present (we were oh holiday at christmas). Less than £20 for unlocking we've still paid less than other people are selling for on here!

Has anyone used fonesunlock before? I paid them Monday morning & was supposed to get the code within 72 hours received nothing in my email or spam folders have emailed them & have received no reply & even set up a paypal dispute & have heard nothing. I think i'm gonna phone them now to see what they're upto!:x

Don't use foneunlock!! Their landline phone number doesn't exist & they don't answer their mobile either!! I have escalated this to a claim now with paypal:x

Original Poster

Got my money back through raising a paypal claim, fonesunlock apologised saying that they haven't received the code from their supplier! Shouldn't sell a service that you can't follow throughon!! will have to go back to the market now :-(
