    Unlocking mobile phones

    I was reading SimpleSi's post about unlocking his mobile phone and thought to myself I could be good info to share here maybe as we all being gaget freaks probably change phones quite alot and therefore give our old phones to family members, I know I do and I have a few lock phones that would be good for my kids if I could unlock them.

    For instance I have just had a problem with my sons Samsung Z140v which has a phone freeze, so we are unable to use it now and all the help I find on the net is a little vague.

    It could be a members only as I supposae we don't really want to deviate from the subject of the site but we all know each other here and trust more to solutions found here.

    Only an idea whta do you think??

    Re: Unlocking mobile phones

    Thanks for the reply
    The phone had a new sim installed last weekend It was on Vodaphone and we put a PAYG Vodaphone sim in it and now when it is switched on it gives the message

    "Phone freeze SIM unavailable Please enquire to service provider"

    I contacted Vodaphone helpline and they said they had never heard of this error and therefore the phone must nolonger work. :cry:

    I will have a look at that site cheers

    Hope I have not broken any rules just givin friendly advice
    So do I

    I have read about the phone freeze on the samsungs all over. Phone them up again and talk to someone else.

    I sent it away for repair and it came back fine (with a new stylus as well!)

    because i use the web of trust extension for firefox, it turned me away as the site has a poor reputation.

    however, Nokiafree unlock phone codes calculator software is safe and i have used it before on an old nokia 3330

    ps. i used to be good at fixing sony ericsson phones (from the db2010/db2020 era).

    Don't use untrusted sites to try and unlock your phones - some of them are not what they seem?!
