No more “locked” mobile phones from Movistar

After a campaign by consumer organisation FACUA, Movistar has announced it will end its policy of “locking” mobile phones to its own network.

So if you have a Movistar phone, they will now give you, for free and over the phone, the code to “unlock” it and use it on any network.

Vodafone, Orange and Yoigo are so far refusing to do this, despite the campaign, but Facua continues to pressurise, and has also lodged complaints in the courts over the matter.
