[access-uk] Re: unlocking nokia 6500?

Carol, I think it's just that if a phone is branded to a network such as Vodafone, it isn't easy to upgrade the firmware because it's coded. I'm sure Steve said something recently somewhere about not being able to upgrade firmware if the phone is branded.

So are you saying you can't upgrade firmware if they're branded, as in Vodafone?

Ooh! Billy, you were done then mate.  Normally they do it there and
then, and charge anything from a fiver or so upwards to about a
tenner. It's normally the networks that do that sort of pricing. Ouch! I like unlocked phones for that reason, and it means you can
usually upgrade the firmware if they aren't branded.

Jackie, I took my N70 to my local computer shop, and he charged me 25
quid. When I queered the price, he said it could have been more, it
all depends if we have to send the phone away,

Hi Billy

I've never done this online.  I can tell you though that unlocking a
phone can range from between £7 and £10, unless you send it away to
the network it is locked to, who will do it.  They charge an arm
and a leg though, anything between £20 and £30.  My son has this
phone, and it's fairly new, so you would need to make sure it can
be unlocked at the moment.  I would also be tempted to advise you
to take it to a local shop if there is one around who will do it. We've got a guy in Kirkcaldy who does all that sort of stuff, which
is useful if I needed that done. Good luck.

hi guys,
I can mind this subject been discussed sometime ago, but I didn't
really bother too much, but now my daughter wants to unlock her
Nokia 6500 on-line.
Does anyone know a really good reliable company on the net?,
