Fast, easy, effective, cheap.
I wanted to unlock my Nokia 6230 so that I could use a pre-pay sim card from a different network on weekends. I contacted my network and they told me they could provide codes for £25.00. Not happy with this I scoured the internet and came across http://www.unlocks.co.uk. They claimed to be able to provide codes to unlock Nokia phones for only £4.50. I was obviously dubious of this, but decided to take the plunge and completed their order form. I made my payment with my debit card and was instantly presented with a set of two codes along with code entry instructions. I carefully followed the instructions and to my surprise it worked - my Nokia 6230 now accepts any sim card from any network!
I later discovered that this £4.50 purchase was possibly one of the most shrewd purchases I have ever made because it also made it possible for me to avoid extortionate roaming charges. Under normal circumstances I use the roaming feature with my UK network when outside the UK. As most will already know, the roaming charges imposed by the UK networks are very high. When I was on holiday in Spain earlier this month, I purchased a Spanish pre-pay sim card and used that in my Nokia 6230 hence avoiding the roaming carges and saving me a lot of money.
I would highly recommend unlocking your mobile phone and would recommend http://www.unlocks.co.uk to anyone with a Nokia phone!
