'Unlock your mobile' site

  prima12 19:52 16 Jan 2009

Hi all, I was given an LG KP 235 mobile for Christmas and as it was a different operator (Orange) than my existing phone (T-Mobile) I thought I would get it unlocked and continue with my existing company. I looked on the internet and found a company called 'Unlock Search' which if I paid £2.99 + vat via PayPal, it would give me a code, and tell me how to unlock my LG phone. What I got was this information 1. Unlock Report (stating the phone make, model and operator)
2. What is unlocking. 3. Why unlock. 4.How to to unlock. The only problem is it doesn't tell you how to unlock the phone, only different options of how it could be done. It seems that they have a nice little scam going on here, promising an unlock code that they don't give you, so please be warned, this is only the 2nd time I have been caught with this type of scam, but now I will be EXTRA vigilant. The company again click here P.

Obvious question have you tried a different sim card in it to see if it will work.I bought the wife a new phone for Xmas and it takes any sim card.So some phones come already open.

I entered a random 15 digit for my IMEI, chose a Nokia and made up a DD345 (there isn't one is there - they make so many), and was told " report available".... Changed to LG, leave DD345 name alone ... still got a personalised report for my invented phone!!!

Not even clever enough to filter out rubbish names.
