The sooner Florin or the imei-check team crack this, the sooner I can get a C500.

Have I said that before?

Yes powered up the phone holding camera button to get the red/blue/green screen.

 

Terminated activesync

Ran SPVUNLOCK2.EXE throws up a error " Verify the phone is in bootloader mode"

And thats it.

Can anyone help

Is this the procedure to unlock a C500??? Can you explain more how does it work. I will need it for unlocking mine! Please!!

Hi!

I rang up Orange NL today to ask if it's really possible to get the phone unlocked if bought without a contract (so paid full price of 429 EUR)?

The customer service told me that it is *not* possible - they don't have the codes. In fact they told me to look after some internet-pages where they unlock phones... :shock:

*confused*

Same answer here.. I called customer services and they told me that it is possible to get an unlock code for 100 euro's. I sold my spv e200 and went to the shop and the shop manager told me that it is not possible to get an unlock key (shop in Haarlem)... Really strange!!! And now i don't have a phone!!!

Okee thanks for your post but a few misunderstandings for me.

What do you mean with: "i have a contract on another phone"? That you have a contract with another telephone company in Holland (o2-nl)?

"needed to use my orange uk card" Do you mean with that, that it is not possible to use a SIM from the UK in a locked c500 phone?

And "he took my telephone number and the imei number" Which number did you give? The phone number from the other company (O2-NL)? Because I don't have a contract with Orange right now and I prefer not to have! So do you think it will work by giving the phonenumber from Vodafone?

i have a orange nl contract on the e200 but i wanted a c500 .the o2 nl is to show that its simlock free . i bought the phone and being a customer i got the code for free. if you are not a customer then it will cost you .the c500 will work on any uk network if the phone is network free ( simlockfree ) i gave only my telephone number (orange nl ) to prove i was a customer with orange and then he asked for the imei number , and then he gave me the code to unlock it,the o2 was only used to show it was done :wink: :wink: :wink:

simply put another non orange simcard in your phone and switch it on you will be greeted by a small box in the middle of the screen , type in the network code and then enter and within a few moments you will see first networkdenied followed by the network that the sim is from........ :wink: :wink: :wink:

I have had my C500 for a few weeks now and I have just been issued with a company mobile phone as well. The company phone is an old Nokia of some description, on Vodafone and about the size of a breeze block :oops:

I don't like carrying both phones around all the time so I've been looking into buying a dual sim adapter that I know is available for other phones, does anyone know if they are available for the C500 :?:

Of course I won't be able to use it until it is unlocked to all networks but I have a feeling it won't be too much longer.

i have to say that i think it's a bag o crap that people are still charging £20 to unlock a phone, especially when you consider that software such as voice commander costs $14.95...

i'll never pay to unlock a phone!

Hi!

If you keep posting the same information ever and ever again or tell us that you won't pay for an unlock code no one will be able to find the real news in this thread...

Of course you'll notify if there are any news on the topic. :) :P

Be assured that florin_m will inform us.
