Hi, just recieved new phone from overseas currently locked to the 3 Network. Any ideas how to unlock it or where to look? USB Cable came with phone but my PC isnt recognising it when I connect it.... possibly faulty.

At the moment if you unlock a Moto V980 it will be converted to V975. And no updates yet on putting the V980 software into it again. Cheers!

There is a company called Mutal mobile or something like this on K Road and also Mt Eden Road they are very good with Motorola Handsets.

Thanks guys. Is there anything wrong with it converting to a V975? Will it still be able to do the stuff I thought I was getting with the V980? eg: 3g, pxt etc.... I have found someone on Trademe that said they can unlock it for $40, shall I check it out more before I get it done? I just want to be able to put my old Sim2 in and go.

With V975 you can still do video calling, wap and pxt. But not Mobile TV, Streaming on Voda Live! (which eats a lot of $$$ of course). Haven't checked those people on TradeMe.
