IF you sim unlocked using imei-check then the phone will stay unlocked.

If you sim unlocked using this patch you will loose sim unlock unless you patch the rom you are going to use

is there a similiar technique to this that can be used on the c500 yet?

no, the only way to sim unlock the c500 is through orange or www.imei-check.co.uk

Well, am I wrong to think that if there's a way to do it and charge for it, then there must be a way to do the same thing free of charge as well?

Not at the moment

Unless you want to develop your own system to create a way to do it and not charge :lol:

I've finally SIM unlocked my mobile! Even switched to i-Mate ROM. Unfortunately, there seemed to be a glitch. Whenever I'm checking my balance via SIM services (Filipinos familiar with SMART Menu -> Buddy Balance), instead of displaying the operator service, it displays a name from my contact list. What seemed go wrong?

I would post a new thread so the question gets more attention

As a thought:

Sometimes the caller id etc act funny if a full number is stored in another number, ie 901 was my voice mail number, and i had a contact who had 901 in there phone number, when the voice mail phoned me it showed as coming from my contact

8. Go back to the folder you extracted the rom to in step 3 and run the file called ROMUpdateUtility.exe

Stupid question, but is taht the same as the file called VoUpgradeUt.exe in my UK update I just downloaded?

Thanks.

Already did it.

In the Orange UK update it was the VoUpgradeUt.exe, as I had thought.

Worked a treat.
