    Can anyone help please (I don't know much about mobiles!)

    I have just been given an O2 Samsung C100 pay as you go (my brother just got a new contract phone and doesn't want it anymore). The problem is nearly everyone I know has a Vodafone so it would cost me a fortune to call them on it. I tried putting in my Vodafone SIM but it just gave a "wrong SIM" type message...

    So how do I go about converting it? Or is it not possible?

    Thanks :smashin:

    I guess it needs unlocking. Get it done for around a tenner at various independent phone shops.

    Thanks nigel. I guess that is the case. I will go find a local dodgy dealer to do it for me, all sounds a bit underhand though! :confused: :laugh:

    or if you know somebody with a data cable and software, then it'll cost you nothing!
