Three to sell unlocked phones
Three are going to start selling phones that are unlocked, which is the first time anyone in the UK has sold unlocked phones without charging for it (if you don't include O2's unlocking service, but that's slightly different).
Three’s director of customer strategy, Danny Dixon, said: "We'd rather focus on making the services we offer attractive and useful rather than limiting what our customers can do with their phones. We’re confident in our network and want to provide the best experience to those that purchase their device from us."
Of course, there's been a number of campaigns and ranty articles about this matter. Really, it'd be fairer on the consumer if all phones could be sold unlocked, but it seems that Three are the only ones with the brass neck to do it.
If you’re already a Three customer, they're saying that you can unlock your previously locked phone for free with them - all you need to do is use their new Device Unlock service.
So there you have it. Is everyone else going to follow suit?
