    Thats what I did when 2G launched. I went to the store, bought it on "contract", got home and unlocked it.

    Does this still work? This is for UK btw.

    Thanks a bunch.

    You are wanting to use a different carrier? If you buy it on contract for the discounted price you will have to pay an early termination fee to cancel the contract.
