Hello people. I cant decide where to buy the phone from. Its so much more expensive to buy an unlocked nokia 5800 but i was wondering if its possible to buy a parallel imported one then unlock it myself. I cant find any guides to do this though and was wondering if it is very complicated to do? Im not even entirely sure what unlocking the phone actually does. Can anybody help me? :D
Unlocking a Nokia 5800 requires 3rd party tools, if you want to do it on your own. This tools cost a few hundred bucks. And once you have the tools, you have to pay for credits to unlock your 5800. Although there's a free software for unlocking new Nokia's out there, it's not safe for 5800. So I suggest buy the phone from here in NZ. Either from a parallel importer or Vodafone shop, warranty is local.
Hi - apparently these are great phones - I won one recently and unfortunately won't be keeping it... but here's a shameless attempt at selling it on Trade Me (auction finishes tomorrow)!! http://tinyurl.com/cwdk8q
