    Default mobile unlocking

    didnt know where to post this.
    i have been thinking about getting a mobile and unlocking it so i can use my simcard in it. is the only way to unlock a new decent phone to sign a 12 month contract or can i buy the phone then sign the contract later?

    dammit... can someone move this to the mobile/unlocking forum? just spotted it now :o:

    contract fones normally take in2 account the price of the fone in the tariff, but u cud buy the fone and go 2 for example o2's 10 pound a month.

    if you buy a fone on contract it wont neccesarily be unlocked.

    New fones can be unlocked but it can cost more cuz they r new. Speak 2 RudeYute on DF.

    btw ther is unlocking the fone physically becuz it is blocked and then ther is changing the IMEI number (a unique ID code).

    If a fone is lost r stolen then the fones IMEI number is reported and the fone blocked on that network.
    By changing the IMEI your fone wont hav the same code as the blacklisted one and will ther4 work. Changing IMEI numbers can encourage theft of fones and so is illegal.

    incidentally, buying a fone brand new there should be no need 2 change the IMEI
