does anyone know where I can sim unlock a Samsung i640v locked to Vodafone UK? Theres so many unlock sites on t'interweb just looking for a reputable one.
Ummmm, what's an i640v? ( Runs off to google.....) aha the slidey-slidey one.
Well I'm not sure if it'll work, but to unlock a box of i600's and i607's I bought a 'clip' off t'interweb for a tenner. It works on loads of samsung devices, not just WM, that use the common connector for the data cable / charger. I'll check if it works with the i640.
How it works is,you boot up the phone with this thing attached over the USB port with a PP3 battery attached also, it strongarms the phone, the phone fails to boot, the lights go out on the 'clip' / dongle thingey, you remove the phone battery and the 'clip', insert a simcard and away you go.
i640's may be different though I know this clip is supposed to work on i300's, i320's and a multitude of others though NOT the i617 as the data cable connection is different.
