According to Orange Denmark, they know that the site will also be used by people who want to use uncert-apps... They dont really care - since they have warned people of the dangers in unlocking, they've got their backs free. And by the way - the new SPVx will be called the SPV E-100 (In denmark, at least) and will feature the 1.40 software, which will also be downloadable for the SPV. More news in Danish at 4smartphone.dk.

If you have a firewall try turning it off, that's what I had to do to see it.

It seems we have a bit of trouble using the unlock feature - the site returns this:

Sorry, but we cannot find the IMEI and mobile phone number you have entered on our database. Please check all the details above carefully & click OK

...? I've tried changing the phonenumber (0045, +45) and things, but am getting the same error. If I then click OK again, it gives me a confirmation, but nothing happens on the phone - I've tried with two phones now...

I just locked and unlocked my Swiss updated'one now.

Well I had unlocked it the hard way a couple of days ago, so I don't know whether there has been a change.

Anyone any clue..?

don't think it'll work since, judging by Torben Vognsen's post it seems to match the IMEI (i.e. the SPV) to the Mobile Phone number (i.e. the SIM):

Just to confirm the unlock screen appears blank if you are running Norton Firewall or similar. Disable it and voila. Just tried the unlock and works fine.

well, I dont think thats my problem, since the sim-card actually has the same number. And anyway, we tried it with two different phones, one which hadn't had the sim changed at all... so... the problem still stands...

i did the unlock this morning, phone made a data call as mentioned but no finished screen came up - now my voicemail indicator is stuck on, is there anyone out there knows what i might do to sort this out?

I have tried the re-locing process which seems not to do anything and have rung orange who knew nothing about the unlocking site.

Answers on a postcard please

I've got exactly the same problem here, Torben - get the error message, press OK again and it goes through - but no action phone-side... :lol:

EDIT: Hmm. After getting the initial "database" error, I just went back to the phone number field and typed in some random number, pressed OK and it went through fine. So there's a bug on the page itself.

Some Danish users have managed to unlock their SPV's but I'm still not able to do so - I'm wondering if this might have something to do with the fact that I'm using my original Orange SIM card (from the days when Orange DK was called Mobilix)? I can also see on the receipt that the clueless t**t that sold me the phone "forgot" to annul the SIM that was supplied with my SPV...so maybe my SIM card isn't registered in connection with my SPV at all. Neither have I got the promised 100 DKK rebate from my bill this month (in lieu of money spent downloading Orange DK's "present" to us).

Damn, Orange DK suck. They really, REALLY suck :evil: B******s.

well, I'm talking to Orange now - and I know that Danes have done it, so it should work here as well. Also, I've talked to Peter Frølund, who is in charge of SPV in Orange DK, who told me about the site. I'm talking to Orange developer dep. now...

Good luck, Torben. Hope you get a result :lol:

EDIT: Torben (and other Danish users with the same problem) - I've found a workaround. See this post I've made in Help & Advice:

I think it's important enough to warrant a thread of it's own.

Hi all

Just tried this this morning.

Entered my phone number and IMEI number intot the site and seemed OK

SPV went onto GPRS mode (little G in the top right hand corner) for about 4-5 minutes then back to normal

No text messages have come through, and now I can't use GPRS at all (for Internet or Emails) - this was working yesterday.

I've checked the GPRS settings and they are all OK

Is it possible that GPRS is down in my area (I've got reasonable signal strength 2-3 bars) - I think I've heard somewhere that GPRS can be down even if voice calls are still OK - is this true ??

I've tried restarting the phone twice but that hasn't changed anything.

Should I try the unlock again, or do I need to wait until GPRS seems to start working again ??

Any ideas ?

Actually, I figured out the problem yesterday... But just to generate a bit of traffic to my site, I put it there... Under "downloads" there is a small program called Action register, which will do the trick... Mine works now...
