My lads moving from Orange to O2 and just found that his N85 is locked to Orange.

Anyone know if these can be unlock with a code or is it a phone shop job?

Thanks...

Orange will be able to provide it for you. Should be free if he's out of contract I believe.

all the N series are BB5 i think, so they cant just be unlocked with a self generated code like the majority of nokia phones..
may have to take to a chap in town?..

Humm, how do you define out of contract ? He used the changes in T&C's to get his pac code last week... Dose that mean they'll consider him out of contract ??

have a look for a shop who have the DM3 box as this will unlock it for him but its not free or cheap, orange should class him out of contract, the problem being depending on how new the handset is (nothing to do with the amount of time you have had it) then orange may not even have the code yet, there are places online who will gen the code for you but again not free and only about 65% of the time they get the code correct

If he's been supplied the PAC code and used then definetly. If they've agreed to send it, then ring up and be cheeky by asking for the unlock code.

r u london based m8, as the contacts in china town are unlocking a lot of handsets via the DM3 via a bloke who visit's once a week, do you have access to a box more regular ? are you a reseller ??

Not for free i'm afraid....
