    unlock simlock? i don't know such a site yet, but i would be careful and i wouldn't recommend to use that sites, especially if youre asked for youre number. it would be easier and more serious to ask for it at your mobilestore of trust.

    Most service providers will unlock phones free of charge in the uk now, i remember my dad telling me they had to now, but i dont know if i heard wrong.

    o2 requires you to activate your phone with them for at least a year theen they will provide an unlocking code... the bastards...
