A giffgaff means of PHONE UNLOCKING!

Yo. I love giffgaff. It's the cheapest and best phone supplier I've ever been with. (Probably the best because it's the cheapest...) But that's because I have a brick! A Nokia brick thing that cost me peanuts from TakesEverySmallCompanyOver. (copyright:JonBirkbeck)
My problem: I want to get EVERYONE involved with giffgaff too! This means I don't gotta spend money contacting them. ~ You may have guessed by now; I'm a skin flint, but we have to be in this day and age, no? (discussion for another thread) ~ SO! My ma and Pa. Ordered them SIMs from GG, and was very excited! "Going to get a nice ten bob (new modern term for pound - embrace it) for enabling new GG members!" But did it work out? DID IT HECK!
My mum's brick rejected the giffgaff SIM, DESPITE THE FACT IT WAS A NOKIA! and so when I went to ask some phone dude how much it would cost to unlock he said, "8 pounds." Not bad, I said, so I took him the phone. "Oh, nah, that's 15 pounds." WHAT?! So I gave up. What's the use in spending that much on a brick my ma never uses?! (Side note: she would use it if on giffgaff) Flippin' cheek! It's orange, that's what it is! Evil company they are, even though it is a fantastic colour (opinion).
SOLUTION: Giffgaff phone unlocking. I don't know how - because I am not technical - but you guys are! So please! Enable our cheap bricks to say goodbye to their former slave masters and embrace the new and fresh freedom of the mighty Giff and or Gaff!
