Anyone had their iPhone unlocked? How did you do it?
Im getting stupid quotes from shops from £40-£60 but don't trust them. What happens if it doesn't work once away from UK?
Quick answers welcome, sat in coffee shop contemplating next move.
Stinky tofu smells like poo.

Have you tried requesting to see if your carrier will let you unlock it? I've heard that at least with AT&T, they'll unlock iphones once they are out of contract. A co-worker came from the US recently and had his phone unlocked when he got here. The shop had to use a special unlock adapter that fits against the sim card. Maybe that's why the price they are quoting is so expensive. I think in LOS it costs about 500 baht or so for the kit and the unlock.
Thanks guys, I'm all sorted. Called Orange and they are doing it for £20 no problems. Feel a bit safer knowing its with my service provider.
You'll also have a *real* unlock that will last.
Dodgy fuckers, indeed - particularly since the majority of unlocks are available at no charge from the right websites, if you go that route. What you have now is the best option.

And in between are all the stories. This is one of mine~
Just means that they appear desperate to unload the Galaxy S3, by creating an artificially lower cost.
The iPhone and iPad are still on 10 month plans, it seems, and selling well for TRUE.
If you knew anything about business then you'd realize that they are trying to target a larger audience to include lower income individuals, just as they did when they offered financing with the iphone. This also gives them a competitive advantage over DTAC who is only offering 10 month financing on the S3. What will huhu say to try to justify his argument when True offers the same 18 month financing for the next iphone release?
What TRUE does in terms of financing offered has a lot more to do with financing incentives offered to them and historical sales of similar models.
The details of such deals would be too confusing, but Apple deals are invariably the same to every carrier (agreement to purchase a stipulated amount of iPhones, over a period of one year, and payment in cash at contract signing) - Samsung provides more flexible incentives, including letting carriers stock their phones for up to 12-months, and the ability to return unsold stock - at which point thus thread segue's into the market share thread from earlier.
-S2 was 10 month financing just like the iphone 4s deal you refer to.
-Financing deals are based on deals with individual financiers. Example:
-Looks like 18 month (and even 24) financing is already available through Citibank & First Choice. The next iphone will have 18 month financing as well.
Remind me again what it is what you do in Thailand? Where did you go to school and what did you study?
As usual, huhu making up crap along the way.
Why do I even bother?
Oh right, for the LULZ... Because you so easily get bent out of shape.
