Its true that only networks can unlock them, get used to it, as that
isn;t going to change (after all they are ones that are paying most of
the cost of the that phone).

Cost is variable across the networks though. Voda only charge 20, and I
believe Orange are similar. Best to just call them up and request the
details rather than relying on web information though.
