mobile/cell/natel unblocking

Anyone know where in Zürich i can get a mobile telephone unblocked?

I bought two whilst i was out of the country working on projects. One with Telefonica in Spain, the other with O2 in Germany.
I was told they could be unblocked after two years, which they are, but neither O2 or Telefonica respond. One was Sony Ericsson, the other LG

Someone suggested the Saturday flea market by Helvetiaplatz, but I checked yesterday without success

i just want to give them away, to my kids, or maybe a new colleague in Switzerland

thanks

I've done that, but it's technically complicated, involves buying kits, and it's not worth it as a one off. i don't want to make a business of it

Re: mobile/cell/natel unblocking

Most phones have an unlock code that needs to be entered. These can generally be purchased online. Just have to be sure that you do some research into the site offering the code as there are some dodgy ones out there.

Maybe if you post which phones they are some people might be able to help more?

Re: mobile/cell/natel unblocking

As I mentioned in my original post, I have heard there are places in Zürich where you can get it done.
These are generally quick and cheap. Do not involve me spending ages googling for a particular brand or model (which I have done, hence my comment about it being technically complicated), purchasing cabling and codes online, as these type of guys will have the kit to do most models.

I'm simply asking if anyone knows of a place that does it in Zürich.

I am in a similar position and would like to know if anyone knows of any places in Zurich that do this also.

I also don't understand the fellow EFer's frustration with your post and clarification of your question.
