I want to buy a Samsung A551 from Telstra in Aussie. Would I be able to use it on telecoms new network?
It says that a Network unlocking fee applies, would anyone know how much that woud cost?

Thx

You will be able to use 3G phones on Telecom's new network when it's live from mid-2009. Until then you will have to use a locally supplied CDMA handset.

When the new Telecom network goes live they will have new handsets so I wouldn't buy anything now - first because it can't be used second because you don't know what's in the market in six months time.

The unlocking fee on Telstra depends on the subsidy that is put on the phone, it is not a flat fee.

If you actually type "network locking" in the Telstra site search box you will find everything you need to know.
