I'm a student at Barnard College in New York, New York. Starting on January 8th, I'll be studying abroad for the spring semester at the University of Edinburgh. This is the blog I'll be passing around for friends and family to follow my crazy travails in the dark and frozen highlands of Scotland. No doubt this blog will be filled with the kind of verbal flailing that people associate with me, it's just that my spazzing will have a more exotic backdrop!

Yesterday, I unlocked my old Blackberry so that I can use it with Nomi in Scotland. I used The Phone Unlockers, and they did a very fast job for a very reasonable price (i.e. the price where I didn't have to buy a new phone that I was only going to need for 6 months). It went so well that my Dad wanted me to use them to unlock his old Blackberry, too. Of course, his unlocking process didn't go quite as smoothly as mine, but their customer service was really good and everything was straightened out within 24 hours of our first placing the order. Anyway, I'd recommend their service. Considering that dealing with cell phones was one of my biggest worries as recently as a week ago, this is a good development in my life right now. Onward and upward!

Wow, isn't that illegal? If so, I support your decision to work on the wrong side of the law.

I don't think it's illegal on SIM card phones. TMobile will actually unlock your phone for free if you've been on a plan with them for three months. So basically, paying to get your phone unlocked is, in some ways, just a big rip off for people who aren't game enough to play the system while they can. Unluckily, I am one of those people.

I think it's not quite illegal, but it voids your contract, warranty etc for me at least. It's not that difficult to unlock the iPhone though... I don't think I would pay for help. :P
