motorola unlocking code

  conrail 21:16 22 Sep 08

Hi guys, hope I have the right forum, my wife and I both have motorola handsets on the orange payg network, got 2 new sims on a different network, my fone has accepted the new sim no problem, my wifes needs an unlocking code, orange are very unhelpful and wanted £30 for each of the phones, when I told them mine was sorted the girl became agressive telling me that I should not have unlocked the phone, I told her I just put the sim in and it worked fine, she then said if I paid now it will take 45 days for the code to come, there must be an easier and cheaper way, all suggestions gratefully accepted

Have you tried any of your local shops,market stalls etc. that unlock phones?
I've never used them but would suggest you give them a try.

thanks NewestRoyWidd1, that is an option, that will cost £10, I was hoping there would be a free option
thanks Technotiger, I have registered with one of the forums, just waiting for a confirmation email so I can log in

thaanks Sea Urchin, had a look at that, does not include the motorola models, wife has one of daughters old phones, her contract gives her a new phone every year, new sim works fine in that so giving motoroal to someone who is already on orange.
I appreciate all your help, thanks very much
