Telstra Unlocking iPhones For Free

One of the most frustrating things about buying phones in recent years is that even when you buy it on a contract, the phone itself is still generally locked to the carrier you’ve signed with, and to unlock the phone you need to pay the carrier a heap of cash. Telstra has just eased some of that pain for iPhone users, killing off the unlock fee for locked iPhones.

Mind you, it’s not stopping them from locking the phone to the network in the first place, but it is a step forward, and especially helpful if you want to use an international SIM card in your phone while travelling overseas. You can get te full details on how to unlock your Telstra iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPhone 4 on Telstra’s Exchange blog.
