Unlocking a Phone

Postby robin37 » Thu, 22 Feb 2007 6:17 pm

Hello,

would anyone be able to direct me to a place where I can have my old Palm Treo 650 unlocked? Not technical so can anyone tell me can I just get a sim card from Singtel or S'hub and away I go?
Thanks

Over 2 years ago had the same problem and nobody would touch it. Strange as it may sound, you can either wait until you go back home and have it done through your server there or send it back with someone else and an authorisation letter. Or buy a new palm here. :(

This is how you do it!

or you can pay 15 pound and do it on a UK website, there is no shortage of places.

You can also contact your last carrier, they should give you the code over the phone, providing your contract is fulfilled, explain to them you have moved countries, shouldn't be a big problem, although they are more concerned about the subsidy being fulfilled.
