for £129 with top up plus you get a free christams box and a set of great headphones thrown in...I'd definitley buy one if I hadn't got mine already....

the next best 4.3" inch costs well over £200

some people install user agent switcher onto firefox and set it to iphone so it looks like an iphone is tethered.

Guys who has unlocked with no problems and which tutorial did you use.

Used tilal tutorial all went well just make sure you read it carefully. Things that tripped me up a bit were when i clicked on the exe to flash phone two boxes popped up can't remember what they said but i just clicked ok both times then the flash box appeared. Could not get es file explorer to root as i had not put a Rom back on so before you install es stick a Rom on and make sure you do a full wipe before you do. Download es apk fRom website and stick on sd card and install. I had to change es home location from /sdcard/ to / to access system/etc.

Actually a top tip for anyone unlocking - you can replace the boot.img under Unlock/files with paul's superboot. It should work perfectly. :)

If you search Google for es file explorer you should find its website and you can download the apk from there put on your ad card and install from there.

How stupid I am! Ten times a day I tell others to use Google!

You don't need to flash any ROM before unlock. Just follow my tutorial carefully and yeverything should work.

Re last post. I’m just about to try the unlock. Should I flash back to stock Orange ROM orcan I unlock from current ROM, CM7.

Cheers and thanks for the unlock.

i also copied the two files to my pc and did place them in cm7 rom and installed it no problem .so until the fix is automatic.you should do the same.its handy if you change rom and mac address is not working.

:) Many thanks to xiaoyaoswim and tilal6991

I've unlocked following the guide (I'm very impressed)

I'm running tilal6991's CM7 nighlty (updated 06/11-improved) with a Virgin sim, WiFi working as well (although figures do not change in Settings/About phone etc...)

Anyone contemplating a OMC, do it, awesome phone for £120
