giff-gaff use O2's network much like T-Mobile/Orange/EE

so it may actually not be unlocked but locked to O2 or anyone who uses their signal

Yes they can, the software is fairly straight forward to those who do the unlocking. I dont know wallasey too well but starlights in birkenhead market should be able to sort it.

Hi, I have no idea, just spotted it on the net. Looks simple enough, a few spelling mistakes I noticed on there. Cheers
