Unlocking optus phone overseas


I completely forgot before travelling to Thailand last weekend, to unlock my ZTE Blade V0720. I need to use the phone on a local (Thai) SIM but this can't be done until it is unlocked  I've checked out that I have to pay $25 to do this. That's fine, but I'm wondering how the unlock code can be forwarded to me. Is it possible to specify another phone in Australia (a friend's) to receive the code, so that it can be sent on? Or what other arrangement can be made? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Re: Unlocking optus phone overseas

Hey there,


You should be able to purchase the code via the unlock portal -
