Hi All,
Just bought an iphone and would like to use My orange sim in it. When I switch on with the sim in, it goes to emergency calls only and is telling Me to connect to itunes. When I do this itunes say that the sim is not a supported carrier.
I guess it needs to be unlocked ? Will orange do this for Me ? I am on a monthly contract with them.
Thanks for any advice given.
Mike.

Orange won't do it because it's not their phone.

You need to find out who it's sim locked to, get a PAYG sim for that network and put the amount of credit on it that I costs to get it unlocked. Phone them and they will deduct it from the PAYG credit

Beware, it takes weeks in some cases

orange wont unlock an iphone that wasnt issued by them...you need the original carrier to do it,or depending on the firmware version,you may be able to jailbreak and unlock it using your pc

Thanks, I will try to find which network it was on. Is it easy to jailbreak a phone ?

Ok, it is on an o2 contract. Any idea how much they charge to unlock?

Hi, much better to pay o2to unlock the phone.they seem pretty relaxed to unlocking and you will not have problems/issues later when you upgrade software.

I would unlock even if staying on o2.

Have you seen the iPhone 4 sim PAYG on TMobile, seems a bargain or gift gaff.PM me your address if you want a GG sim. I have a few and a leaflet about setting up an iPhone.

Good luck
