    Hi guys!

    I recently bought an iPhone 3GS from a UK seller. However, he lied about it not being locked to any carrier. I assume it's locked to orange, as that's what the "Service"-bar indicates in his pictures, so I wondered what's the cheapest way to permanently unlock it from abroad? (I'm in Denmark)

    Thanks in advance!

    Mathias

    By seller do you mean through ebay?

    you could have returned it, since it was: item not as described.

    I think you have to have been with Orange for 3 months and pay £15 to get it unlocked, for PAYG iirc.

    Go to your carrier's shop they should be able to unlock it.

    On Orange, O2 and 3 you shouldn't have problems.
