    Default Wildfire S unlock

    Hi guys.
    My daughters blackberry has given up the ghost so I thought I'd give her an old Wildfire of mine. Turns out it's locked to orange and she's on giffgaff. Is it easy/possible to unlock these? If I put her sim in it prompts for a code.
    Cheers.

    you'd be surprised they're very cheap to unlock, i've done many myself in the past, whats cheap is that you can unlock using ebay for as little as £1 and have it unlocked witin a few hours sometimes instantly.
    EBay link removed.

    or if you dont trust the guys online you could go to any mobile phone shop and they would charge you no more than a £5 with a few minutes wait,



    hope that helps

    Has she looked at unlockapedia? Its giffgaffs unlocking advice page.

    Orange charges 20 squids to unlock a phone (they will send you a code).

    Cheaper to go to a phone kiosk and get those guys to do it manually. They can do it within a couple of hours and will charge you a tenner (a fiver if you're lucky enough to be in london).

    Wouldn't bother with the online codes you can buy. If they are only charging you a couple of quid its probs not legit. No free way unless you 'know a guy'.

    Links to a pay unlocking service, spam! Don't do it!
    If at first you don't succeed.....redefine success. . . .

    Ended up getting a code off eBay for 99p! Can't complain at that price.

    It will do they will just be using a code calculator for older model Htc no different to what the network has access to,

    blackberry and Samsung also generally cheaper to unlock via 3rd party code calc rather than network iPhone and Nokia the network tends to be cheaper

    There's free blackberry calc in VIP works on all but newest blackberry as they have changed security on there handsets
