If it's the same one that's linked to in this thread, then no, it should work fine. It's been confrmed as working on two other networks already, but there's no way of knowing for certain until you try it, I guess.

Simlocks don't affect WiFi or Bluetooth. They're nothing to do with simlocks, and totally separate!

Glossy: thanks for the info!

In principle the sim unlocker just works on...network issues that's what I tought.

I asked this because for all matters the sim unlocker it is a piece of electronics and for some reason it could interfere with other Skate funcionalities.

Glad to know it doesn't :)

Cheers.

I would just like to say that I am just a guy with a wife and 3 kids to support, I live in a council house and have a second hand car.

when I first started selling these sim they sold for around £6- £8 until many other sellers started dropping prices to out sell other sellers, in the end this killed the market now can't sell these for much more than £5.

I saw my sales go up from just a few a day to more than 20 in just a few hours, I thought I finaly was in luck and my problems over, so I took a gamble and increased my price from £3.79 to £5.79 and I will tell you why, These sims cost me $300 (£196) for 100pcs that is the cheapest I can find them at wholesale, so work out how much I am making on each sim and bear in mind I only sell around 25 to 30 of these a week if I am lucky!

Price cost to me for each sim= £1.96p
eBay fee = 12p
Paypal Fee= 35p
First Class Stamp= 46p
packeging= 10p
and don't forget my time and the fuel cost to take them to the post office= 20p

Total Cost before any profit= £3.19p

Now please tell me if I was wrong to increase the price?

If anyone who has bought one wants a refund I will gladly issue one, please contact me to let me know with your eBay id.


I wish you all well!

Kind Regards,
Darren.

P.S I only had 60pcs in stock now only 20pcs I will be off sale soon and will be out of luck until I get some more which can take up to 2 weeks! you see me not selling many of these I was only ordering 100pc every month or so.

To be honest at £5.79 these x Sims are still fairly cheap, if my order from dealxtreme does not arrive this week I'll be buying off you Darren,

i don't think 5.79 is bad at all..... if all data speeds & such are normal we don't need to worry about an unlock any more or wait for 3 month from orange to then pay £20.

i ordered 1 last night, can't wait to ring orange & tell them i payed just over a 5a to unlock & that they wont be getting a penny from me ever, get pac code, bring my number back, make complaint for terrible customer service... who knows after a couple more thousand complaints they might actually stop treating there customers like s***..

and lastly... i would much rather my money go to to someone supporting there family at hard times, rather than a jumped up multi million $ network who don't have a care in the world...

Darren,
Thanks for taking the time to join the forum and post an explanation. I don't begrudge you trying to make a bit of extra cash on ebay - we all do it Posted Image

What I thought was cheeky was you seeing an uplift in sales and whacking a fiver on the price Posted Image

It's good that you acted on feedback and reduced the price so quickly as well Posted Image I don't think £5.79 is a bad price, infact I ordered one myself this afternoon.

Still not got the phone though - went into both orange shops in town and neither had stock, hopefully tomorrow.

Mike
