Currently I do not have Orange sim, but I'd like to use apps and files on my SPV locked to Orange. How is possible to enter to the phone without sim installed? I just got that sim failure screen. Every smartphone should be used without sim!

I still use my old SPVs for answering questions on the forum.
What you need to do is put a SIM card in and set to Flight mode ie. Aeroplane On - Radio Off. Now you can power off and remove the SIM.
When you restart the phone will still be useable :)

The only problem is that I do not have Orange SIM to even turn the phone on. When I use any other sim, I just get that enter unlock code screen and I still can not do anything.

Will, now I realized that I should press power button while loading (it's hard to get the right moment) and switch the phone to airplane mode (Radio off), before it starts to search for sim.
