I was stuck on the Orange network with them demanding £20 to get the phone unlocked. I thought after paying £150 for the phone and £20 a month for two years that I would actually own it - but apparently not!
I wasn't too keen on going to a high street mobile shop - they've always looked quite dubious to me - so mobileunlocked.com looked like the best option. Good review from Tech Radar and recommended on Giff Gaff. Clicked through from Giff Gaff to find that I got a £3.00 discount for doing so.
So the initial quote of £10.99 for an HTC DesireS went down to £7.99 and it took a matter of minutes to pay, get the code delivered by email and entered into my phone.
