Hi all,

New MoDaCo and Pulse user here :D

I just bought a tmobile pulse and it arrived yesterday. Sorry if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find a definitive answer (only for the Hero). Is there anything I can do without sending my phone away to unlock it from tmobile, so I can use it on O2?

Cheers,

phildrip

you do not need to send away

if you have a tmobile contract they will send you code for £15

no idea what they do if you just have PAYG

we are also waiting for imei-check and uniquephone to have an online service

Ok, thanks. It's a payg phone, and tmobile were unwilling to unlock before I'd had the handset for 3 months. Has anyone tried a smartsim?

Not sure if this helps, but last year I tried a Smartsim in the T-Mobile G1 just to test and it worked okay.

I never tried to change any of the settings for Orange but it made and recieved calls. For £4 it's worth a try.

Hmm, interesting - thanks! Maybe I'll give that a go.

Do you kmow which one you have? There seem to be a bunch on the market.

The one i used was the $3.93 yellow i-smartsim 2008 from deal extreme. It worked in a few phones (I was testing it for work) before a colleague tried it and it stopped working after that. Once they are in and working, they are fine.

Hope this helps...

Great stuff, thanks. I ordered that one from ebay; let's see if it works.
