    I was going around looking for a way some good cellphones. Finding out that some are only available at another provider, I was wondering if these sites can be trusted. They have unlock codes you can buy and the other one has cell phones for a very cheap site. Maybe someone has bought from them... but if someone has bought from them, tell meh. I want to know, so I can tell my dad if he might allow it.

    Mobile In Canada (Unlock Codes)
    Cell En Gros (Cell Phones)

    Just wondering if these sites can be trusted...

    EDIT: If this isn't allowed... Take the links out please...

    Depending on the phone, you may be able to get unlock code generators or unlocking software online. You may need to buy a fairly cheap cable off ebay to do so though.

    @ Ultra ~ Confused... >_<

    @xJohnny ~ Yea... I might just get a phone from another provider then get it unlocked. Might be my best option right now. Love the flag... I am gonna go steal it now :3

    So it looks like I am not the only one being distracted by xJohnny's profile xD

    payg charges are daylight robbery. That is what is confusing. And I don't want to pay monthly since the chargers are more expensive. My parents take monthly and compared to pre paid, I would prefer pre paid since I am not much of a Cell Phone user. I just need it to be able to contact people anywhere...

    let me put it this way, I get 1000 minutes a month along with free internet on my contract at around £30 a month, at an average payg rate of 10p per minute that would cost me £100 a month, not to mention that I got a good phone for "free". now, to be honest I am not a heavy phone user and only ever spent around £10-£20 on on top ups, but its nice to not worry about how much everything is costing you, keeping conversations short, etc.

    @ Ultra ~ Good deal and all, but I don't even have a job. Also add the fact that I am under 18 and am payed $10 each week... I doubt I would be able to save my money if I did go monthly. So with pre paid at least... I will have $30 left over with my savings each month.

    @ David ~ A regular unlocked phone... Only place I would find one of those is either on Ebay or some asian mall (Pacific Mall maybe). But considering the gas prices and my time in hand, I doubt I have enough time to get to Pacific Mall. Ebay, well my dad just doesn't trust it.
