Any help welcome!

It's on o2 at the mo', but needs to go on to Virmin.

Is it straightforward like doing a Nokia, or is there more to it?

Cheers.

I need to get it done for my nephew's birthday, in a few weeks time.

AFAIK there is no DIY newbie tools mate.

I had to pay a tenner at a local Phone shop to get mine done.

C'mon mate, it's only a tenner and the phones a cracker, well worth the asking price. :)

Hmm, maybe... Got the phone already, but it's fecking pricey round here to get 'em unlocked, more like £15-£20...

Well as far as I can see you can patch unlock the W580i
I'm sure someone has posted how to patch unlock on this forum already, including software.

So if you want to do it for free, you could try that. I've debranded then patch unlocked a W850 ok.
It would be worth paying to get the full unlock though, then you don't have to worry about it locking again if you want to upgrade flash sometime in the future.
