Orange Now send pay monthly Phones Unlocked !!! used to charge £ 20 for unlocking code

Found 1st Dec 2008
i am not sure if this is the a deal or not but i recieved my new Nokia N96 from orange us an upgrade .. Orange fones are normally locked but guess what !! i tried three and voda sims on it and they both worked fine .. so i guess that after Vodafone d started to ulock fones for free orange started to send unlocked fones now ... however it could be only me .. so .... u better check before u make a move ( especially if u intend to sell ur handset on ebay or even here ) ... the fone sux though and it s got to go back ...

Moved to misc, thanks OP.

I bought an HTC Touch HD from Orange just over a week ago and that wasn't unlocked. I have since paid for it to be unlocked though! :thumbsup:

You get a good deal on the upgrade to the N96?

Have you ever debranded a phone using NSS before? If so heres the product code, sim free 0568238 debrand it and your phone will be better. I hate to say it but Orange fimrware does somtimes ruin the phones.
