    bought a unlocked n70 from ebay, recieved it and it aint unlocked, which leaves me feeling somewhat annoyed. Is it possible to get it unlocked from orange if the handsets an ex contract one? Last I heard it was £30 to get it done and took 2 weeks for the code, is the situation still the same?

    I would just take it into a mobile shop that does unlocking, probably cost you around £20.

    i was under the impression that only service providers could unlock the new nokia handsets such as the N series, 6270/80 etc

    this is true. orange will be very unlikely to unlock it for you considering they didnt sell it to you. you would have to get the original bloke who bought it to do it, and then i think it costs around 15£ but you better hopes hes been with them for over a year/it isnt stolen.

    These new phones are confusing, perhaps it is possible to unlock it by flashing it, who knows, all the forums ive visited recently say that you cant unlock the BB5 phones. (google BB5 unlock see if you get anything, ps the unlock for BB5 phones on Ebay is fake).
