UK operator Three has confirmed it has been selling all of its handsets unlocked for some time, allowing them to be used on rival networks.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Three hopes the move will attract more customers by allowing them greater flexibility to sell or reuse the handset on a different network in the future.
If you are a Three customer with phone that was locked when you bought it, you can now unlock it free-of-charge using its new Device Unlock service.
Update: Rival network GiffGaff has since confirmed it too sells unlocked handsets to new customers.
