Unlock mobile phone question

    Recommended Posts

    Hello Everyone,

     

    Arrived a few days ago, living in Port Noarlunga. Meant to get Orange phones unlocked before left UK but never managed to do it. Looking at getting Amaysim for them for a few months.

     

    Would anyone know of a wee shop in the Noarlunga/Christies area or even CBD that would be able to unlock phones. Have found a few links online but worried I may brick it.

     

    Cheers in advance

    Matt

    It depends what phone it is. Some you can do by getting codes online, some can be done via software and a cable and some can only be unlocked by the network/manufacturer.

    Most phones aren't compatible? Pretty much all phones are nowadays.

    It's probably not so much of an issue these days however Orange and T-Mobile used to use 1800Mhz whereas O2 and Vodafone used to use 900Mhz as their carrier frequencies so some phones would not work on other networks even when unlocked. I won't go into detail re frequencies used in Australia because this site has done all the hard work already.
