    Speak to Droid. What he doesnt know about unlocking mobiles is not worth knowing.

    Depends on the make / model as most they have on the systems themselves, ie. did a n95 the other day via vodafone and took 10mins for the email to come through.

    £20 is the standard charge I think, saying that least you know it will work and have some come back if it doesnt rather than spending a tenner online :)

    Gonna hold on to the iphone a bit atleast till I see if this HTC does everything I need. Have to go everywhere with two smartphones and a netbook. Do need to slim down abit. :roll:

    Sorry only just logged on :(

    Just for reference nearly all the Samsungs can be done with an unlock clip costing about £7

    You could just use a turbo sim,use any sim in almost any phone without unlocking.

    I have a nokia n95 8gb which was on the 3 network and 3 phones are a fu**er to unlock and when you unlock them the firmware usually crashes.

    My phone is now on 02 without unlocking,i can change to orange etc if i like ?

    Also if you get another phone you can use the same turbo in another phone.

    I tried my rebelsim from my iphone in my HTC, did'nt work though. Bought an unlock code from ebay instead works great.

    You would just need to upgrade the sim with latest software. If you buy the programmer you will be able to swap to other phones indefinitely. (£10)
