    Unlocking Nokia 5230 on t-mobile

    Theres a deal here of a nokia 5230 on tmobile for £79.99 from argos. Has anyone unlocked one of these for free? or used t-mobiles unlocking service? if so i would appreciate if you could tell me how to or how much t mobile charge because i only want to get this phone if i can get it unlocked reasonably cheap.
    thanks

    do you know how they do it does it sort of apply a new firmware or just remove restriction because i had a phone before that was unlocked like that and had a few bad firmware issues i always thought it was due to the unlocking badly but its probably not does anyone know? thanks

    I bought it unlocked at Phones4U instore for 75 quid for the phone but there was a mandatory 10 GBP topup with Vodafone...

    really? oh well ive ordered the white one now and i dont know which i'd prefer hmmm.......
    well thanks anyway i believe you can get your money back within 7 days if not happy so i could switch if i dont like white
    also i think the purple is only available on vodaphone so unless you can assure me it comes unlocked ill stick with white
