    My phone contract is up for renewal. For the first time ever I cannot see another phone available that I'd rather have than my existing Z30, so I've been looking at SIM only deals. As they seem to offer pretty good pricing for teh data allowance I want, I'm considering going to GiffGaff. this would involve unlocking the phone.

    Has anyone in the UK successfully unlocked a Z30 and switched to another carrier? Does the mail all work ok?? It sounds straightforward, but wondered if anyone can advise me.

    The best way to check is to put someone else's SIM in.
    I stuck my THREE SIM into my wife's supposedly locked to Vodafone Z30 and it just worked, no unlocking needed. Everything woked as normal on the THREE network.

    Was the phone supplied by O2, or did you move to them from another network and unlock?

    I've been reading the unlocking forums on here, and now suspect that my phone may already be unlocked. I've ordered the GiffGaff dim, so will have it out when it arrives.

    Received the sim card yesterday, put it in the phone, and everything worked pretty much straight away. Turns out the phone wasn't locked after all, so everything's good.

    Mine was locked to Vodafone UK, I went to Giff Gaff unlockpedia and took a chance with highest rated servis mobileunlocked co uk, they have done pretty good job.
