Will it be hard to unlock a pay as you go phone? or will there a simple hack to unlock it again?

On my current nokia all i had to do was enter some code but then my phone is 5 years old so i guess they have better ways to lock them down now.

thanks

once unlocked it wont lock again - you just have to get the operator to do it - and they normally charge you 10-20 quid to unlock.

This sounds like a great idea. Im on 02 anyway so can i just give them my 02 phone number then i get the 10 top up as well? im not entirely sure what the top up does.

Thanks in advance!

If you buy any PAYG phone from the CPW they expect you to apply a 10 (if paying by card) and 20 (if paying with cash). If you are an existing O2 PAYG customer, or if you have a free O2 SIM hanging about, you can just buy the phone for 209.95 without having to stump up for a top up.

PS... take your O2 SIM with you when you go to buy it.

Looks like the end of the deal at CPW.

Stores are now saying its not available on PAYG any longer through CPW.

Be interesting to see how long before it comes back and if the new stock are sim locked. Glad some managed to get them whilst available.
