Found 17th May 2009
Calling all techies.........

I have an unused KRZR flip phone that was locked to Orange

Somebody (might've been me) tried to unlock it and completely bu****ed the software (it went back to some sort of very basic functionality

Can any of you clever people (you know who you are ) please offer some advice as to how I might reinstall the software at little / no cost

My daughter has decided that she would like to use it to text her pals

Thanks for any advice in advance

Bill

The phone used to be locked to orange

Banned

and still is likely locked to orange

To be sure try an orange sim
