    I bought two V300s on T-mobile PAYG for my daughters. They want to keep
    their existing o2 numbers and talk-plans so I took the phones to my local
    mobile shop yesterday and paid 40 to get the phones unlocked. When I
    returned today the guy in the shop said, "Sorry but we couldn't unlock them,
    the phones are too new. Nobody can unlock them yet."

    Is he correct, is the V300 too new to unlock?

    This is not true... I have received the unlock code from T-Mobile for my
    V-300. This was last year when they were even newer...

    That's not what he means, the service provider can provide the code for any
    phone they supply, he means a 3rd party unlock.
    You should be able to get the code from a phone unlocker to do them.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I've been doing some searching on the internet for sites that can unlock the
    phones using the IMEI numbers, unfortunately they all (the ones I've found)
    say that the Motorola servers are down. If I find another shop offering an
    unlock service will they be in the same boat? I mean, are they simply taking
    the phones and accessing the internet like I could or do some have other
    means to generate unlock codes?

    In Motorola phones unlock code isn't generate from the imei. Producent
    randomly generates unlock codes for each handset and create a list with imei
    and unlock code corresponding to it. When you or someone else want to remove
    lock from your Moto phone, there is no other way to remove it. You can only
    obtain it from Moto server where the codes are. Ou I sorry there is the
    other way. You can always pay your provider. They get all codes to the
    phones they sell from corresponding producents of the handsets.

    I have unlocked my v300 in local gsm shop. Anyway I have a question. Have
    you in your daughters' Motorolas an option to get confirmation that sms was
    received? My v300 is from polish provider ERA GSM and I don't have this
    option. Maybe there is different software and flexes for every region of the
    world?

    Thanks for replying. I haven't really had a chance to check out the phones
    yet. I got them on Monday and only got them back from my local mobile shop
    last night.

    I will have a look later and let you know, if someone else hasn't already
    answered you.
