    just got confirmation that KPN Holland is selling them UNLOCKED for 510 Euros ($760) including tax. Now i just need to find out if people in other countries are having the same data lock problem as people in the states are having with unlocked bolds.

    I CURSE KPN!!!!!! My Bold showed up in the store and when my friend picked it up he saw it wasn't unlocked, even the staff were confused because they were under the impression it would be unlocked just like any other phone they sell at full price. ggrrrrrrrr..... trying to see what site is offering the quickest unlock code for the bold. Any suggestions would help.

    try freeyourcellphone.com(gave me my rogers code in 1 and a half hours) or jpcellrepair.com
    all the sites give unlock codes for rogers and at&t in max 1 day, but for any other carriers around the world it generally takes days.

    I had someone pick one up for me from rogers in vancouver and its on its way to me now, already got the unlock code from freeyourcellphone.

    has anyone been successful in unlocking a KPN bold? They sell for E99 without contract there. Want to know if I can buy the phone and unlock it for use in states..

    You are better off buying it from rogers, its cheaper and thats what I did.

    If you do end up buying one from KPN, they unlock it for you but charge 60 euros

    If 'ticktock' is saying that a KPN Bold only costs 99 Euros, then that can't be cheaper than Rogers surely?... or have I got the currency wrong?

    Surely ticktock is mistaken. I was on the phone with a friend numerous times while he was at KPN stores and on the phone with them. It came to around 500-520 Euros including tax, plus they wanted 60 euros to unlock it.
    Even if I didnt speak to someone there, I would never believe that a carrier could/would sell a Bold for 99 euros, without contract. Thats just crazy.

    Also on kpn website it says the bold 99 euros, with a 2 year contract.

    That makes more sense... it was obviously the 3 year contract figure he was looking at I reckon.

    As you say, I can't see any operator selling an unlocked Bold for just 99 Euros!
