Hi,
Can anyone help?

I'm trying to get my W880i unlocked (its currently locked to Orange).

I've tried two unlock sites over the phone, both give me a code begining #pw+ - How do I get the ''w'' and ''+'' signs to appear? I also thought this was only for Nokias?

The site I usually use is: http://www.mobilefun.co.uk but they say it can''t be unlocked yet.

My imei number is ************* if that helps?

thanks

Edit: thanks for the warning

I believe that code is indeed for Nobia''s only.

Davinci is unlocking DB2020 phones for a hefty 50 euros. Check it here:

You can confirm with them if the 880 is being done also, but I believe it is since they''re all DB2020.

Personally I would recommend you try King Mobile Phone - I''ve personal experience of their service and found it to be second to none. A wonderful set of people.

Hi dbramley, if you contact Orange customer services and adv them of your phones IMEI number then they should be able to provide you with the unlock code for your W880i, i purchased a W880i on Virgin Mobile and when i contacted them they provided me with the unlock code within 7 w/d''s. Hope this helps

Just out of interest mate...how much did the unlock code cost?

From providers, it will cost you between £20 and £30.

If you buy a handset directly from Virgin Mobile, i.e virgin megastores, the virgin website or through the call centre, they will provide the unlock code for as many phones so long as you''ve topped up a minimum of £30.

According to Orange I have to pay for the entire 12 month subscription upfront for them to provide me with an unlock code - this can''t be right can it?

Didn''t used to be, I''m sure. Could have changed I suppose. You are subsidised for the cost of the handset so perhaps they''re making sure they get their money out of you.

Hi

Davinci price is quite high, many cant afford that much.

Previously getting it done for 5 pound etc ie old model's and now suddenly 35 Pounds is a lot.

I got mine unlocked from www.totalgsm.org for 18 Pounds instantly and remotely through the USB cable. Just try them out they also unlock the DB2020 ie W880i,M600i,K610i,W880i,W850i etc.

Regards

Ben
