Hi I'm Dean! I've been in the industry for over 5 years, we have 2 stores, a handful of e-commerce stores and a repair centre. Generally we can unlock and service almost any mobile phone in house. Unlocking we teach the bare basics of code entering right up to microscope test pointing.

We can assist with the purchase of equipment and provide on going support and the best networking!

As we design our own retail system we can help and advise new business and expand ideas for profit making horizons. You will not only learn how to fix and unlock, but if you're in retail you will see the best chances to make this into a money making goldmine in your area.


Livingt the life!

Opening 3 stores and a repair workshop and setting up various repair sites. Our shop floors stock over 13 different styles of unlocking equipment. I have worked from basic code generation right up to microscoping and drilling the phone to unlock it!!

I just hate testpointing n73's but there are now easier ways of unlocking them!

Death by drills, only one as I accidently drilled through the chip, oh well it was my first phone but if I unlock around 3,000 handsets a year I think I'm allowed one mess up!

Generally I will say, each phone is recoverable unless you take a drill to it :-)

Educational history

Mobile Phone Selling (GCSE Equiv)

May, 2008
I attended the course, passed never received the certificate. To be fair and honest I did not agree with the sales tatics but I attended as I believed in growing my knowledge. I'd teach better sales tatics lol! :)

Nokia Accrediation

January, 2008 - December, 2008
Nokia Academy
I've attended more than enough Nokia Academies which allows me to get a fancy certificate! :)


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


Travel expenses are paid if outside our own area, apprenticeships available, chance to live the unlocking and repair world for a day via our retail and repair centres.

To avoid training local competition we will charge a surcharge for anyone wishing to trade near to one of our stores and limited training may be offered. In short, we don't want to give away all the secrets to people on our turf :-D
