Very, very interesting topic this is!
Now I have some questions/concerns...
My intention is to buy a DUTCH Orange SPV E200 next saturday with a 2 year Free40 contract. I read two positive replies of people who succesfully unlocked their dutch E200, so that's hopeful
Because I already sold my old Siemens S45i to my sister, I need an unlocked new phone to use with my T-mobile simcard the next three months (because that's the period of notice with T-mobile
). I suppose this is possible after unlocking the phone.
The question I have are:
- Does a sim unlock disable any (orange specific) features? I will use my Orange simcard (of course, I'm paying for it
), but need to use my old T-mobile sim also for the next three months. So...I obviously want to be able to use any orange features in near future.
- Does anyone know what bootloader version is in the now sold SPV E200's? I saw that unlocking doesn't work with bootloader newer than version 1.06 and I don't know how up-to-date this information is.
- Is there a posibility to temporary downgrade the bootloader version and, after unlocking, upgrade it again in the case my new phone is equipped with a newer version?
TIA for any information...I can't wait till next saturday
