Wasting my time trying to unlock a T-mobile phone?
I've just bought a semi-new N95 from a chap in Fulham. Great price, excellent condition. And locked to t-mobile. I knew I would never EVER get an unlocked handset for the price i was willing to pay, and i thought t-mobile would be the better option due to the VoIP issue with the vodafone and orange handsets out there. But now it looks like i'm wasting my time with this phone. There's no way t-mobile are going to give or sell a non-subscriber an unlock code, are they? Surely i can't just ring them up and tell them i've bought an N95 off one of their subscribers and i'd like to unlock it so it'll work on another network? It seems like all of these handsets are pretty useless if you're not on the network they're locked to, as these guys aren't ever going to give up the unlock codes!
ps. I did ask the previous owner if he would do it for me, and he said no.
Could anyone offer any advice on whether there are any unlock solutions out there i may have missed? There's some character offering to unlock the phone for £50 (FIFTY QUID!) on ebay. No chance. I'd rather just sell it again than have to wait anywhere from one to three months for an unlock code that i stand a very good chance of being denied in the first place <:S
