I wanted to "unlock" my contracted Samsung Galaxy S2 with T-mobile network, UK, so that I could use the local SIM, instead of paying for v. expensive roaming costs, during my holidays abroad next coming 10 days time.. I am already more than 12-months into their contract but T-mobile, now called EE or similar, wanted even more!! Firstly, I must be 12 months or more into their contract, secondly they wanted to charge me 20.00 UKPs for it, and thirdly their time-scale of unlocking my Galaxy S2 would be up to 28 days, which is totally "unacceptable" to me as I would be abroad then. Also I have another Galaxy S2 with Vodaphone network, they would do it "free" for me and with a timescale of less than 10 days provided I'm 12 months or more into their contract, which I'm. The T-mobile, or EE, CS also threatened me that if I use other non'T mobile way of unlocking my phone then I may be invalidating my phone's warrenty as well.... What a USEFUL CS from T-mobile or EE!!!
I know there are many sites on the internet which provides paid "unlocking" facility, but some of them could be scammers as well. Therefore I'm still very reluctant of using these sites to do it, and that is why I was looking for T-mobile/Vodaphone supports whenever it is possible.
