    Hi folks,

    Could someone point me in the direction of a safe place to get my iP5 unlocked?

    Doing a Google search, there were quite a few listings under the actual Google ad-sense but i'm not entirely sure I trust them.

    I went on one site that suggested it was possible, they had the unlock code available but i'm not sure.

    You can buy an unlock code on eBay.

    I should have gone into more detail about my situation.

    I purchased a so called "sim free" handset from Carphone Warehouse (im in the UK). What I didn't pick up on, was that it sim locks to the first sim that you put into the phone.

    I'm currently locked to T-Mobile and require a Vodafone sim for work. I have been arguing with T-Mobile and Apple for weeks to get the handset unlocked but i'm getting nowhere. Apple say they don't have the facility and T-Mobile say because they didn't supply the handset, they cannot unlock it.

    Very frustrating I am seemingly stuck with an expensive locked phone that was meant to be sim free.

    Did you try returning it at the place you purchased it?

    Said I had the device too long for them to do anything about it.

    I'm basically stuck with a devalued handset already. Not good.

    Made a complaint to trading standards and such but it fell on deaf ears. They said there was adequate small print on the site.

    So much for consumer rights.

    Asked Apple to swap it out for an unlocked one and they wouldn't. Worth a try.
