Hi guys,

I am awaiting my unlocking code from Orange, as i also have a Vodafone Sim which has a lot of data minutes so i can surf the internet for free :) however, as this is on vodafone and the phone is a nokia 6230i can i put it in my Orange M5000 (when unlocked) and use it as normal in there (i.e GPRS for internet and phone calls) i notice in the nokia we have settings for setting up the GPRS settings but i cannot find them in the M5000 :D am i wasting my time unlocking it to enjoy free data minutes? or is this possible

any help much appreciated guys/gyals :D

Hi Paul thanks for replying so its just a question of unlocking orange m5000, and putting in my vodafone sim and it will work? no settings change??? maybe set the GPRS to vodafone?

sorry paul i am a newbie and already had 2 faulty Orange M5000 last year, so i got to make use of it but orange charging me a arm-n-leg to surf the net using GPRS etc (vodafone its a company phone where i use to surf on a crap nokia phone)

There will be a requirement to chane your settings. Look here. Use the PAYG settings

Use the Vodafone GPRS settings (Email/Web): not the WAP

ok but i looked on my Nokia and the settings seem to be the Vodafone GPRS settings (WAP):
ones, i give both a try does it make a difference? i thought i was surfing with GPRS Wap as the GPRS access point is wap.vodafone.co.uk :)

sorry i am such a dumbo i appreciate ur advice thanks
