Hi, I successfully unlocked bootloader and rooted phone following various guides here,
but does anyone know how to unlock sim locked to Tesco Mobile?
If I have to I'll pay, but not the ridiculous 20 Tesco want.
When I insert another sim I get message
"SIM network unlock PIN" giving me 2 options "Unlock" and "Dismiss",
I've tried some cheap ebay sim unlockers, but they didn't work.
I've read that Tesco double lock their sims, whatever that means.
If I have to pay, can anyone recommend reliable site?
Thank you
Steve

I just used this guy. Seems very honest. If he can't find your IMEI in his usual Server, he contacts the 'Not Found IMEIs' server for an additional 4. Still cheaper than Vodafone and Tesco:
