    Unlocking Orange Samsung X830

    Hey folks, I've been after an Orange pay as you go sim card as I have a number I want to keep (so just going to port it across to a payg sim card until I need it again) and I want Orange Wednesday again. I'm also after an X830 as it seems an ideal 'light travelling' phone, while I love the N93 it's not always too practical. So picking up a pay as you go X830 seems ideal - the problem is I need it to work with Vodafone and as far I can see the X830 is not unlockable at the moment, is this is the case and if so how do you go about getting Orange to provide the unlock code? I'm guessing that's unlikely to be a viable option as even if Orange will do it, there will be a minimum wait of a year or something...if it can be unlocked, I'd be grateful if someone could recommend a company to do it.

    Thanks,
    John

    Why not just buy the X830 sim free, meaning it's unlocked to all networks?

    A quick google will find you a lot of places that supply them sim free.

    Unless you know a cheap source for them offline, that would be quite a bit more expensive?

    Hi John

    As you said most information points out no one has figured out how to unlock it yet.

    You can register to get news on when it will be unlocked on this site
