Used my mother-in-laws Vodafone account to request the unlock code for the P8. Finally came through today, after best part of a month.

Is three currently the best priced network for this at €129.99 switching? Need to get one for the auld fella, I assume dc-unlocker works for three handset?

Why not just spend €4 and get it unlocked straight away?!

Because I don't need it unlocked for any particular purpose right now, and because free is better than €4.

That DC Unlocker method takes alot longer than 5 minutes ,thats if you can get it to work.
I tried it lately and it kept on refusing all my credit and debit cards and Paypal gave an error too.
Wasted a few hours on it.

Just a heads up on phoneunlockshop.com.com. Went through the ordering process, gave them IMEI etc and they charged me $9.99 to my card.

Got an email then this morning saying they couldn't unlock it and to go back to Eir. Grrrr waiting on a refund now...

Bought this on Vodafone and have it unlocked. I find it a brilliant phone for the money with one little hiccup.
I find if I leave bluetooth on while at home it seriously affects my wi-fi. I have fibre and normally can depend on 45-50Mbps but on my phone with bluetooth turned on it reduces to 5-7 Mbps. As soon as I turn bluetooth off, it's back to normal. This only happens on the P8 lite, my old Motorola isn't affected.
Anyone else experience this with this or any other phone? It's not a huge deal but I'm curious as to what is causing it.
