Theres a place down shop street. You'll see the guys carrying signs advertising it. Cant remember off hand where exactly, or how much because they couldnt unlock my phone at the time. Probably more then 99p.

what's wrong with the internet? depending on the model there are plenty of sites where you can get codes for free for unlocking.

Here don't use the free websites as the codes are out of date and you only get 3/5 goes, go to this site and check if your phone can be unlocked in readme thread.
Its actually only for nokia and iphone if you go to higher thread.

Was 15-yoyos when I went there a few months back.

They only charge if they actually can unlock your phone.

the one above the joke shop, the man who owns it was in there and was the most arrogant person i have ever met, ( he wasnt irish or english but thats besides the point)
i went too the one on eglington street cartronix, and unlocked 4 phones for a really good deal, i have NEVER had a phone unlocked where the memory/ contacts/ photos werent deleted, everything was still there!!

so cartronix eglington street is the one! and you can haggle a deal with him too

If I'm not mistaken, they're Germans in that shop. (heard them talking amongst each other)

Germans don't do small talk - that can make them seem unfriendly to Anglophones who are the kings of small talk (so much so that it's often joked that Anglophones rarely communicate but are always talking)


I had a great experience up there yesterday - got a charger port that the cat fecked up fixed (25) and a snappy new housing (25 - bit expensive compared to eBay, but you pay for the instant take home). It's like a new phone and I'm delighted
