Yup, Buzz has sorted it. Not straightforward but it does work. Follow kelv23's link.

Yeh got mine for £158 delivered.. which is going to be wicked based on the fact this works!

hmmm

Quote - Enter bootloader mode on your Phone. To do this, simultaneously hold down the backlight key
(“bulb” key, next to volume key), the power key and soft reset the phone.

On the v1240 is this the same key?! - ie- the button top left hand side (used for launching the wifi etc)

*shakes head at asking questions already* :)

My v1240 was not providor / sim locked, you should be able to decert using the same instructions for the orange c600 / faraday. Check the tornado section in the smartphones catagory.
