Vodafone should be free. Others around £15.
You cannot unlock 4S via a website - it has to be a provider. All websites claiming that it's possible is a scam.

i can not activate my iphone 4s without original simcard this is realy frustrating me, my iphone 4s was brought to me from France & now i can not use it, and apparently there is no tutorial on how to activate or and unlock it :((( What should i do? heeeeelp

afroman,
do I understand correctly: you bought the iPhone 4S from France where it was linked to a French SIM? So, you bought a locked, foreign iPhone? I may be wrong, but I do not think there's much you can do... You'd need to get a SIM for that French network; activate it, jailbreak it, and then unlock it.

But maybe someone else here has an idea????????

I hope the few quid you saved over buying a UK version seems worth it now.

On a less sarcastic note, Jan's right. Though, even when you've JB'en it and unlocked it, as soon as you update its iOS version on iTunes you'll be back to square one (without the possibility of JB'ing it as it takes the devs. time to find new JB methods) as an iOS update removes your JB and therefore your SIM unlock.

Personally, I'd eBay the phone back to France (http://www.ebay.fr/), cut my losses and buy a UK iPhone 4S (preferably properly unlocked by Apple).

Yes, probably best to try and find a French buyer, and chalk it up to life's lessons suck :(

Thanks guys, it is supposed to be an unlocked iphone 4s but then Surprise "the sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported...bla bla" and i went throw all topics no solution yet,the JB exists for IOS 5.0.1 but can not unlock. i have an Iphone 4 which i bought from Amazon USA unlocked it's working properly IOS 4.3 JB'ed.

Sorry to hear that :(
It's why I buy 2nd hand phones only when I can meet the seller in person. The potential for hassle to save some money is just not for me...

How much to unlock an iphone4 on vodafone ?

All phone unlocks on Vodafone UK are free of charge. You have to be a customer or use account of someone who is the customer. Phone needs to be provisioned on Vodafone network - meaning you need to make a phone call from the phone you are trying to unlock on Vodafone network.

For those who can read between the lines - yes you can unlock non Vodafone iPhone using Vodafone. Jailbreak, unlock, make a phone call, call Vodafone and ask for factory/permanent unlock.

how much to get i phone 4s get unblock in 02

Network unlocked? £15, AFAIK.

Unblocked? Not happening, the phone will only ever work as a phone outside the UK.

The free unlock sounds dubious to me...
Unlocking it? £10-£20
What firmware is it on?

To unlock an iPhone the remote unlock service would be a better option because,you need not give your mobile to someone else nor do you have any chance to enter the wrong unlock codes.To get such an unlocking service for your iPhone 4S approach Prounlocking.com and by submitting the country and network to which the mobile is locked to you will be able to remove the restriction from the respective network.This will be a permanent unlocking solution.

earth,
That is awful advice.
The folks in a real shop you can directly confront when something goes wrong. Dodgy online services?!? And how is uploading your IMEI and credit card details safe?!?
