Did this work? Any updates?

just got this phone after reading on GiffGaff that it is free to unlock. Now i find that it is one of the hardest to unlock :angry2:

I just got off the phone with Orange and they will be calling me back soon. But from your threads I hold no hope to getting anything including the truth.

So are you able to now use any Sim? I really want to stick my GiffGaff sim in. I worry that I will brick my phone... I have only had it a short time so i really do not want to Brick it as I have no backup.

Ok firstly, there is a fix brick option. So even if you do brick it, you can fix it easily.

And secondly, this doesn't unlock the phone, so you will still only be able to use Orange, Virgin, and T-Mobile SIMs, nothing else

ahhh. Ok. So, will anyone be able to find a fix? I would have thought getting Root would have given some way of unlocking the phone? I thought root was the holy grail.

Damn :(

No the 'holy grail' is the unlocked bootloader.

SIM unlocking is completely different. Look at the SIM Lock status topic on this forum for a lot more info

Root has got nothing to do with sim unlock, the two aren't related in any way. You wont brick it by putting your GiffGaff sim in, it simply wont work.

Orange normally insist on 3 months of use before unlocking for £20 but as you can see from it's not always that easy...

Don't bother with any online unlocking site as there is absolutely nobody but Orange who can unlock it regardless of their claims.

if you mean taken off your credit then yes, if you don't have enough then it will fail.
