Question about Samsung SYNC SGH-A707 Cellular Phone
I have a Sony Ericsson W580i mobile & have just changed from Virgin to Tmobile. The phone appears to be locked to the Virgin network. I would like to keep the same phone. Please can you help with the code required to unlock it? Thank you for your help.
I've unlocked one of these before using informatio9n from www.Topsony.com.
Browse to the forums and look for 'Patch unlocking'
Basically it tells you how and gives you the tools needed to patch the firmware of your phone (which you'll need to find and download) and then flash your phone with this.
You'll need a Windows OS and the regular data to PC cable. It was quite a while ago I did, but I remember it looks quite complicated but if you follow the instructions carefully it's actually quite easy.
If you have any problems with this, I'll see if I can find all the files on my computer, I have them somewhere...

Contact Virgin's customer seriice and ask for the subsidy unlock code, you might have to provide proof of purchase. but that should get it unlocked.
