Unlock a mobile phone.

My son gave me his old mobile phone when updating but it is locked. How do I unlock this phone which is way out of contract with Telstra. It is a Nokia 6120c-1

Re: Unlock a mobile phone.

Thank you for your reply. The mobile is about 3 years old and out of contract. Do I still need to pay $50 to unlock it? If so I will just buy a new phone for $99 from Kmart. That is a rip off when the contract has expired.

I don't think you would, but you should call and confirm. The act of calling itself does not incur a $50 fee. :smileywink:
