    Think about it, it's basically saying

    "Hey, I have a phone on your network, any chance you can unlock it so I can use another network and give them my hard earned instead of you?"

    No chance mate.

    Best of going into an independant mobile phone repair shop, ie not O2, Carphone Warehouse, Phones 4U etc. You usually see them down the market or in the scabbier parts of town. Most unlock phones for a fiver or so.

    only orange can unlock this model
    they will do it for a price but i think they will charge you more depending how far you are into your contract
    if contract has ended they charge about £20

    That's why they're legally required to do it. :)

    How much they charge for it depends on the network and how far you are into your contract. Most operators charge around £20 at the end of contracts, 3 charge a three figure sum.

    Usually Orange's policy is to ask you to pay up the rest of the remaining contract plus the £20 ish unlocking fee. You might be lucky though, just ring and ask.

    yep the only way to unlock Nokia BB5 models(6630, 6680, N70 etc) is through the operator

    they will send the unlock code in the post usually

    I asked 3 about unlocking my 6630, they say they are negotiating with Nokia to get the codes.

    Great.
