Unlocking mobiles - advice please (UK specific) Answered
Right: Kitewife has bought me a mobile for my impending 40th. It is a Sony Ericsson W710i, locked to Vodafone pay-as-you-go. However, I currently use Virgin pay-as-you-go. All my friends know this number, the tariff suits my usage profile. I asked Vodafone for the codes to unlock the phone, but they want me to pay Â£20 (about $40) to not have to do business with them. I see many websites offering much lower-priced unlocking services, but I don't know which to try / trust. Does anybody have any advice / experience that would help me free up my nice new phone?
