Yo guys, I'm on Orange Pay As You Go Dolphin, and have decided it blows. I've heard real good things about O2, lots of perks and such, free calls to other O2 people and the like, so I really wanna switch.

Trouble is, ma phone is locked. MORE trouble is, it's a Motorola, which is apparantley very hard to unlock. :/

SO... since the internetz is no help getting it done, do you guys think it's worth taking it to some unlock shop kinda place?

Anyone else switch from Orange to O2 run into stuff like this?

(OH ya, Mod guys; unlocking is legal - I own the phone. :3)

But can they do every phone?

Internet is saying it's hard to unlock a Motorola, cause they have a unique code for each model. Or something.

What model of motorola is it?

Why do you want to go onto 02?

You should go with virgin mobile. You get 300 texts when you top up £10, 600 for £15 and when u top up £20 you get unlimited texts, unlimited internet access and unlimited calls to other people on virgin.


from what I've heard motorola are easiest to unlock as well.
Contact Orange and if they want to charge you (they shouldn't really) then look on the internet or go to a market they normally do it for a tenner.

It's a Motorola V235. It's old, but I like the way it looks. :p

And I want O2, cause most people I'd wanna be calling are on O2.

Are you sure that makes it legal? Wouldnt you be on a contract until a certain time, than you can unlock?/

I think the specifics are - if you're on a contract, it's illegal. But I bought the handset, so it's mine to do whatever. And I'm on Pay As You Go, no contract.

Whoever told you it's hard to unlock motorola were lying. It's really easy, just take it to a phone shop that deals with repairs, they'll have it done in like 10 mins.


And no it is perfectly legal. The networks even offer the codes themselves. But they are greedy so normally ask for more than you can get it done elsewhere for.


I still say go for virgin you get money saved up towards a new phone even just on pay as you go.


edit: No it's always legal. It's legal in a contract too. They are just *giving* you a phone. They can't tell you what to do with it. It's illegal to unlock the phone, cancel the contract and keep the phone. It's perfectly legal to get a contract, unlock the phone, but keep the sim card for the contract.

02 is definately the best one, I'm on a cheap contract with an unlimited texts bolt on. Thus I never go over my contract because I don't really call people for long enough to worry, and my mum got the same thing but a bolt on for free 02 to 02 calls - now everyone in my immediate family is on 02 so we save tons
Well whad'ya know, it's a female on UG. D:
