We hate talking about it ‘cus it damages the excellent deals you guys get on phones. Why? Well, the networks tie you into a contract because it takes them the contract length (usually a year) to get some money out of you to pay for the handset. The phones are very rarely “free”, even if you’ve paid nothing at the outset – the networks claw back the cost of those handsets with calls. So it’s naughty and bad and that’s the last we’re saying on the matter.
Over at MoDaCo and also MSMobiles.com they’re talking about such naughty and disgraceful things, so if you’re after network unlocking your C500, see them.
Oh, and C500-Unlock.com was mention too.. tskk
