    Can anyone recommend a decent provider of unlocking services. Bought an Iphone from a mate but it needs unlocking. Cheers.

    Best bet is to get him to contact the network provider and they will usually unlock for £0-25 depending on who they are. If this is not possible you have options but they tend to cost £60+. In the past I have put a PAYG sim that is accepted into a phone, made a couple of calls and left the phone on with this sim in, then contacted the network to have it unlocked once the IMEI was shown on their system as registered to the sim in my name. Ball ache but at least the unlocks are permanent.

    thats a good trick, thanks!
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Managed to get the lad I bought it from to contact the provider, EE. They still want payment to unlock it even though the contract was paid up ages ago!?!

    Shocking that you have to pay at all though. Surely once the contract is up, the phone is yours?
