Using unlocked phone on ThreeUK

Found 12th Sep 2007
Hi i was just about to get an unlocked phone to use on the three network but thought i should ask three if it would work so i phoned them. They told me it would be fine but there would be no way of getting the x-series applications on there!

Does anyone know of any way to get the x-series applications on an unlocked phone??

Any answers would be appreciated

no, not unless you get the CDA string off on of the xseries sony ericssons (if they have SE's on xseries)

for the nokias, you will have to get the product code from under the battery and put the code on it using NSS

may be difficult to do the rebranding using nss because it would more than likely involve "Downgrading" the firmware, which i believe is not currently possible!

thanks for the reply...anyone else?

its possbile, any local phone repair shop can do it.

Also not all unlocked phones will work on '3' if you post up what phone your getting i can tell you if it will work and if you can get it branded with 3 software

yea i think its just such a hassle to do so off ebay so i think i might just stick to the n73 - not that much worse than the n95 i guess

Hustler has hit it on the head, but a locked N95, as 3 locked phones are always cheaper than unlocked ones. Also i would wait a while if you can (a month or so) as the prices will be dropping soon on the n95
