Guest's review of Mobile Unlock Centre


“Could not unlock from o2 - but still happy!”

Written on: 02/10/2012

I bought an "O2" Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro from Asda the other day, convinced that all Asda mobiles were unlocked. Silly me, it's only "Asda Mobile" mobiles, which are unlocked!

Googled it and sent the details off to MobileUnlockCentre with £4.79 via paypal for an unlock code. They emailed back within the 24hrs they promised, apologising but saying they could not provide an unlock code. The £4.79 was back in my paypal account within 24 hrs.

A later conversation with O2 revealed that even they cannot unlock it for 12 months because of some arrangement with Sony. But after that they will unlock it for free.

So, disappointed with the M.U.C., but I guess you get what you pay for, and I can't fault them for being honest and returning my cash.


PS:- Am now using a giffgaff sim in the phone, it works fine, as giffgaff uses O2 network.
