    lmao My utter stupidity

    Today whilst pissing around I decided to try to have another go at unlocking a viewty I picked up second hand last week after my N95 got lost. Well being an impatient bastard I decided to go the official way and phoned 3. Big mistake and 20 minutes of Indian call center converation with a woman resulted in her wanting to bill me 90 quid and no unlock code.

    Still fuming I googled and found this site [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I should have known better but decided to give it go and paid the £3.44 via Paypal only to recieve this shit.
