How Do I Unlock An iPhone 3GS?

    • Thread Starter

    Can I just take it to some local phone shop or do I need to take it to Vodafone?

    any old place that does 'unlocking' will do it - might charge you quite a bit though.

    You cannot unlock a 3GS the traditional way as far as I know. (So no unlocking places) You can jailbreak your iPhone and unlock it that way. I got my iPhone unlocked from 02, they did mine for free since i'm on contract with them. Vodafone may have different conditions, or may not unlock it at all but take a look on their website. It's unlocked electronically so you don't need to go to a Vodafone store.
