    anyone know any good sites for unlocking mobiles to open them up for putting any sim cards from other operators in them?

    im pretty sure this ISNT illigel.

    if it is, then do delete this thread asap.

    Is there a market near you?

    There's always a stall with some asian lads unblocking phones.

    This isint always the best way though... as it will void your warrenty and sometimes it will only be temporary unlock. Best thing to do is to ring ur service provider and ask them about unlocking it, best thing to say is that ur going on hol for a couple of weeks and u want to put a foreign sim in. some network agents get funny about people leaving...I used to work for virgin.

    you could always flash the phone, this re writes the firmware and debrands the phone. you would need to download the right software tho to do this. If this goes wrong tho it will kill your phone.

    or there is some websites where you can pay a fiver or summin and they will send you the code, you just give them the IMEI

    this. i've never heard of it being temporary tho.
    by law networks have to provide you with an unlocking code. they don't like to do this, and will try to avoid giving it to you, if they dont play ball tell them you've been in contact with offcom before about it and that they told you they have to provide it.

    some networks will charge for em as well.
