    Hello everyone.

    I am getting a new handset and want to give my Palm Pre to one of my kids. Trouble is the Palm is locked to o2 (uk).
    Now i know i could go and pay for an unlock code but heck i dont want to pay. Im sure there is a method to do this...... Can anyone help with this please ?

    I thought there may be some exploits or something to get around it with it being a Linux system but I can't see anything. The only thing which appears to work is something called the Palm Rebel Sim II (ebay) but thats at a price of course o_O
