GSM unlocking

by deejayk    Nov 24, 2003, 6:26 PM

I've got a Motorola v60i which was used on the Cingular system. I believe the phone is "locked" to Cingular, but am not certain as I am not the original owner. I'd like to take the phone with me to Australia next month to use on a prepaid system, so I've got a couple of questions:

1) Is there a way that I can confirm that the phone is locked?

2) Assuming the phone is locked how do I go about unlocking it? Through a Google search, I've found several websites that promise to perform this service. Are any of them reputable?

3) How can I confirm that the phone has been unlocked? It would be nice to know this before I get over to Australia.

4) What are the legal issues involved in unlocking?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
