    No. No one can.

    It's CID53.
    Hence unlockable

    Go on eBay or search here for IMEI unlock codes. They will cost you money.

    Why is it so hard to figure out how to unlock it when we have the USB cable ?

    How much do these places charge to unlock ?

    I like the system that AT&T and T-Mobile follows, they will unlock the phone after 3 months, but since you have an agreement, you still have to pay your bills as they have given you the phone for a subsidized price....fair enough.

    But the good thing that they do by unlocking within 3 months is that you can now use the phone when you travel abroad by putting a local SIM card.

    Why can't Fido do the same.

    Fido is double locked, don't bother...
    I think it's easier taking to a shop and let them do it unlock there.

    Top Sony sells unlocking for it for 30Euros = 45 CAD
    And Horizon sells it for around 50 bucks

    Those services removes the Network Lock and SP Lock

    Which fido has them both for some ridiculous reason.
    1 is a painful enough... 2?
    And robbers is more evil! How come they don't have 2
    Arr~

    The Fastest and Most Reliable. Question-Mark?

    i own a w380 and it CAN be unlocked. I had it done last week for $25 ...

    It would be nice to find some good software for this s i didn't have to pay to do this so many times. hehe

    But I guess anyone who unlocks phones have a real good tight hold on the market.

    For W380a CID53, it's a little bit tricky, but yes, we can also unlock it at £14.99 only

    Hi,
    Does anyone know how I can unlock my W595 for free? I've tried Aerix but the server is no longer available. I need it unlocking to take any sim including other countries.

    Thanks in advance
