Last holiday when I was in UK I saw this beautiful, ultra slim basic mobile at Asda for only GBP 4.99. At that time it was a choice between buying a Fuji digicam and the mobile . I decided to choose the mobile.
Only when I came back to Malaysia that I realised that I have made a very wrong choice because my mobile was locked with T-Mobile UK not knowing that mobiles in UK are mostly locked mobiles. I emailed T- mobile UK to request them to unlock it for me but they want me to pay GBP 15 plus a top up credit for my number . All in all it will cost me RM 200 which is really not worth at all since I can get a good brand new unlocked basic phone here too. I really regret for buying that phone !!
So the only way I can use that mobile now and forever is as an alarm clock and as a decor. My advice is never ever buy any mobile while overseas no matter how cheap they are unless you are prepared to pay a hefty sum to unlock it!!
