    Was just reading that post haha.

    I would like to make use of it for orange wednesday deals x

    Not for me but my Nan. I am trying to get her into the modern age technology wise. Still has a house phone from 10 years ago. I hope to get her a nice phone that will let her do calls but something that will let her have a play and learn.

    I don't want to be considered, but i just thought i would say ...'What i lovely generous offer - nice one '

    Nice gesture OP, but why not just sell it & give the Money to a Charity.You will end-up given to someone on here who has a 5-6 Figure sum in the bank :-/

    Because my Orange San Francisco refuses to switch on and i can't get it replaced/repaired under warranty because i installed a custom rom and i cannot remove it as it doesnt switch on, so im having to go back to my Nokia 3310

    I would like it as, i have recently lost both legs, 6 fingers, and 37 quid when i was mugged at razor blade point. Not only that, my husband then decided to leave me as i could no longer do that thing he liked with my non existint hands, the dogs left because i couldn't "walk" them and the daughter naffed off, when i could no longer make egg mayo sarnies.


    P.S None of the above is factual, but it beats the sob stories your going to get! (really i could do with the phone, as mine is turning itself on and off and is no longer under warranty, so will be cool if the mo fo does give up and die!) Much love and well done for the generosity, kiss kiss.

    Good work on offering this to people OP. Nice to see such a kind gesture on here every once in a while.

    What a lovely gesture, it looks like a great little phone.
    I'm not going to ask to be in the lucky draw but it's such a nice thing to do I thought I'd say so!

    Could I be considered please, Im currently having to 'borrow' my OHs and Im sure he'd be glad of his phone back lol. Would be fab for Orange wednesdays too, thanks. x
    P.S Lovely offer, well done for being so generous. x

    Nice of you op don't need it myself though

    Wow, most generous member giveaway ever? Certainly the most generous I can recall since I've been here!

    WheresMeNuts' suggestion is a good idea.. the phone is worth a few quid so a local charity might appreciate it.. Still, I won't complain if my name comes out of the hat

    P.S. To the winner: Free unlock code here nextgenserver.com/cal…or/

    Cant believe how generous an offer this is!

    I would love this as my nokia fell out of my pocket earlier, straight down the loo - think its a gonna

    can't you just wait few weeks more?

    Good gesture OP !

    I don't want to enter the competition but good luck to anybody else

    My phone is a Nokia 1660!!
    (Orange)

    Thanks oldmanhouse for info, tried to use this to unlock but it asked me to register, so registered and activated account,only problem is i cannot see where to login on that page to enable the unlock request?

    Appreciate the comments about the offer but i dont think it's as generous as some are making out, just a phone

    Ah damn, sorry for the bad info. That's the site people were using to unlock the Orange San Francisco so I figured it would probably be OK..

    Seems the Vegas goes by the model number X760 too and there's two options on that site: ORANGE Vegas and X760...... wonder which one is the right one?!

    Would like to be put down for this please, my phone is getting to its last legs so to speak at the moment and very skint(the perils of not working) so cant afford a new one! And have bad credit rating so cant get a contract phone.

    ..I'm a student

    but then again i dont need it, but nice of you lol

    Don't think it was bad info, quite possible i was doing something wrong, think i will let the winner sort out any unlocking if they need it unlocked.Thanks again for the info.

    nice offer. Looking to get my cousin a phone. He is 13 years old and has never had a mobile phone.

    I have sim cards where I havent topped up in over a year, they are useful to receive calls from other people and I have credit on the phones over a year old for emergencies etc.

    I normally top up my 3 phone once every 3 months with £10 to get the free 3 to 3 and skype etc and I use about £3 of the credit as everyone in close family is on 3 its free calls to each other.

    becaaaaaaaaaaause....

    my phone is pants

    As im in the market to get my mum her first ever phone as she has been a technophobe for to long

    Please consider meeeeeeeeee!!! Will cut from a long list of reasons why! I just need a phone DESPERATELY! Thankyou xx

    It would help considerably for my younger brother who has an hour journey to school each way on the bus and he has just started the big school.

    Id get it and give to my niece, i dont need a phone but very generous of u

    Please may I also vote for brightsoul as she's my bestest friend but lives 200 miles away and it would be lovely for me to finally be able to text her again without fear of her boyfriend reading my juicy goss lol.
    Super sweet of you OP xx

    Great Comp OP, I would love to be considered. Don't have a 'sob story' to make me more deserving than anybody else. If it's a random draw then we all have the same chance.

    Good Luck everyone!

    I'd auction it off in aid of charity. I'm raising money for Childreach (climbing Kilimanjaro)...

    Wish i hadn't tepmted fate and mentioned my phone as its now blimming dead!! If anybody texts, i ain't ignoring you, i'm phoneless ffs
