    Can anyone recommend a source for unlocking an XDA IIs or even know what O2 Online charge for this?

    Hi crocodile,

    Try looking at:
    http://www.xda-developers.com
    I downloaded an unlocking app for my (original) XDA...as well as some other cool stuff....
    Very good web site.

    HTH

    I don't think the unlocking software is available yet for the IIs or IIi but O2 will unlock for £10. I phoned them yesterday and they said they will forward an unlocking code in 7-10 days.

    The trick with O2 customer service is that if at first you don't succeed, put the phone down, try another customer services person.

    I had 2 attempts before I spoke to a pleasant lady who first said the all O2 phones were unlocked, I then explained that this is true of all except the XDA, she spoke to a support colleague who then suggested I took it to a back street phone shop to have it hacked !!!! I explained that the software hack was not yet widely available, she went away again and came back saying they could do it but it would be very expensive. I asked how expensive and she said £10-£15. I said that that was OK so she said that she would charge £10 as I was so "understanding". This all happened a few days ago so I will leave it a week or so before phoning to find what is happening

    Sounds very familiar except the last bit. I made several calls to O2 yesterday & got the same sort of responses. One shining light even suggested contacting Virgin as they make the XDAs! :rolleyes:

    The last guy I spoke to said that unlocking would only be carried out on a phone over 12 months old. At this point I gave up.

    I've found what seems to be a vaild Internet resource that charges around £20 but I would be interested to hear how yours pans out. Can you please update the thread when (if?) you receive your code?

    My £20 Internet resource also worked.... :suicide:

    Still, it would probably have cost me the extra tenner in phone calls to O2 before I struck lucky & found the 1 in a 1000 that you got through to.

    Thanks for the update anyway.

    Yes, once it's been unlocked either by O2 or a third party.

    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking of bidding on ebay for a new locked xdaII. Which website did you use to unlock the phone....did you have to send it away/what did you have to do???

    Thank you for any help/info that you can provide :thumbsup:

    Pete.

    I only found one resource & that's here. £20 by Paypal only & worked first time on XDAIIs with no problems.

    If it IS a II & not a IIs or IIi then I believe it can be unlocked FOC.

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that if you persevere with O2 customer services, they will eventually agree to unlock it for a fee. Otherwise, use the link I posted previously.

    If you haven't bought an XDA2s yet, I'll sell you mine already unlocked!

    That's why I said it was anecdotal. I got the same response but others say they've had no problem. I think it's just a case of keep ringing until you get through to whoever's turn it is with the O2 brain cell today.

    Otherwise just sell as it is & let the buyer worry about unlocking.

    Nooo...Don't ever pay anyone to unlock a HTC PocketPC phone.

    the software aplication that unlocks these phones was written by a guy on this site http://forum.xda-developers.com/ and he published it on there for free.

    you'll have to search around a bit but it is on there and it's a free dowload that takes seconds to unlock your phone
