    I have been told that there is a fee of 15 to unlock a phone. Is this
    expensive?

    Thanks

    Depends on the phone... Some phones can be unlocked on-line for free!!

    For phones that need to be unlocked by an 'expert' at a phone shop/market
    stall, I'd say 15 is at the upper end of acceptable prices.
    Shop around a bit, you might get it for a few quid less...

    Last I knew:

    O2 charge 15, provided your PAYG phone is 12 months old
    Virgin do it for free once you spent 30 with them
    Orange charge 25 or 20

    Some dodgy shop or stall about 5 years ago - 10

    Orange charge £20. I called a local shop that does unlocking, and they
    quoted me £20 (Nokia 6300), and couldn't do my N82 (nor could the
    local 'Nokia' shop!).

    I'd rather pay Orange directly. I managed to de-brand all my phones myself.

    They (Virgin) used to supply the unlock codes if you just "topped up" by the
    required amount.

    3 CS charged 15 (credit card) to unlock my E220 Modem a few months ago.

    No reason to expect it to be any different for a phone.

    There was a slight delay.because they had to obtain the code from the
    manufacturer.

    Virgin now charge 15 irrespective of spend, i.e. no longer free if you've
    spent 30. T&C changed in April apparently. Info from CS bod 5 minutes ago.
