I've recently been looking for software which unlocks mobile / cell 'phones and found a couple of forum posts which had been closed by over enthusiastic moderators.
First of all, unlocking a mobile phone is not illegal in any country that I can find, and most mobile telecoms companies will give the unlock code, for a fee!
Secondly, this thread is Ubuntu related, as I am looking for software than will run on Ubuntu and is preferably Open Source.
So, if anyone knows of anyone who's written something that can unlock a mobile and will run on Ubuntu, please post a link here.
If you don't (and searches on the internet don't show much, so that is most people), then please just move on and don't feel compelled to try any be annoying, unless you have something useful to add.
