Hi guys, was wondering if anyone knew how I could unlock my phone(s). One is a Nokia 1600 that I got in Oz on Vodafone. I tried some unlock codes I got off the net but no joy. The other is a Nokia 6680 I got in the UK on 3mobile, and my googling tells me it can't be unlocked by code. I bought a vodafone SIM card when I got to NZ, but it works in neither. I'd rather not have 3 phones if I can help it! Any ideas, suggestions etc much appreciated. I'm in Christchurch if anyone knows of shops there that'll unlock them.

Both of those phones have been locked by the operator of the network they originated from.

The only way to get them unlocked is to contact the operator and ask them nicely to do it for you.

Not all companies will unlock their phones.
