    2 Differant issues here first unlocking if network locked, meaning only use sim from network who supplied phone, quite easy if you have a nokia as there are loads of online places willing to do it and some are free or if you find a programme you can do it yourself ;) or get your network to unlock normally for £20 ish.

    Unblocking could be 2 things if you have input incorrect password a few times it will block sim and you will require puk code from network, or a blocked phone normally means phone has at some time been reported lost or stolen and fixing that by changing imei number is illegal but can be done if you fancy a holiday in the jail (5 years afaik)

    Hope this helps.

  • Unlocking and unblocking are 2 different things, unlocking is perfectly legit and a website I have used before is
    Unblocking is generally when a phone is stolen or cloned and has been blocked by the network, best avoided then really.

    If unlockme doesnt work for you then just do a google search typing in phone unlock and loads come up but beware if you attempt to unlock your phone 5 times then it has to be unlocked by use of a data cable and costs you money.
    Good luck
  • Gk you beat me too it.

    Memo to self : must learn to type properly ;D
