yeah i went to the phone shop but they reckon i need to send it back over seas to get it done or something, and i was told it costs like $200 for them to unlock it, i was just wondering if there were any other ways around paying alot of money

Buy yourself whats known as a datacable for your model of Nokia. This costs around 13(uk), then you can download some free software from say http://mobile.box.sk
which will unlock it. Beware though some of those applications are outdated and might not work, you will just have to try a few until you get one that does.

The 3310 can be unlocked easier than the newer phones that are availible now.
You should get a Flash cable, this cable “flashes” new software onto the phone, but unlocked software, this is safer than using a data cable since you can go back on your actions. If you get the datacable idea wrong (which is usually does go wrong) your going to be left with a fucked phone.
Your phone shop is bullshitting, since they can unlock your phone with the “Mastercode” which is availible to them.
