FFS. had an old iPhone 4 and I decided to put a o2 SIM card into it. Turns out it wonít accept it until Vodafone unlock my iPhone. Now have to trip to the Vodafone shop miles away. I suppose they ll charge for this as well. Anyone know anything about this?

If the contract on it is up theyíll do it for nothing and it can be done over the phone or online.. I think :)

The old trick with o2 when you contacted them was to say you were going on holidays in a few days and it sped up the process.

Just do it online, contact Vodafone through their Boards.ie forum as the reps that man it are usually more senseable than the ones you get through their website.

I recently went through the vodafone online process to unlock an iPhone 4s.The process was enacted digitally, there was no interaction with a human in a vodafone uniform.
I received the unlock code by email.

Not aware of anyone who does straight swaps for phones. None of the networks or major retailers want least year's models.

What iPhone are you looking?

What's the exact model of Galaxy you're trying to trade in? If it's an S8 or an S8+ in good condition, you'd sell it on your own for more than 60 no problem.

Ah, assumption when you say Galaxy is that it's an S series or a Note.

The A5 is an 18 month old budget phone. You'll definitely not get any value from the networks for it. Certainly nothing that you'd come close to start swapping for an iPhone.

4s? There's no iPhone 4g.

Showing up as a weak connection on the laptop? It should be excellent as it's referring to the WiFi signal being broadcast by the hotspot, not the speed of that connection, which will be alright but not great. iPhone 4 could only carry 3G I think.

The 4s supported LTE.
