I rang Orange to transfer my number from a sim only plan to Pay as you on Saturday, I also enquired about unlocking my new OMC and they said it would cost £20 and could do it right away.

yes, i also went threw orange at first.
they told me £20 for the unlock code an would have to wait 10 to 15 days to receive it
but after 2 weeks of wating they said to me, your sim has to be registered to the phone for 3 month before you can request it.

i think it all comes down to oranges customer services not knowing wot there actually telling customers lol Posted Image.

Last time I checked T-Mobile their 'unlimited' was <1gig! I think 3 are the only ones with true unlimited (eat as much as you like) data. Or GiffGaff 30p odd per day data.

PAYGO http://www.t-mobile....ou-go/boosters/

its a 30 day internet booster for £5 i have been using this for 2 year now, fair use policey is 1gb but after that all lt means is you can only browse internet
inbetween 4pm & 12 midnight, then from 12 midnight to 4pm its back to normal / full speed i get a solid 250kb never drops Posted Image


i did try 3s all you can eat data plan for £15 a month but they block nearly every site i use, and is overpriced compared to t mobiles Posted Image

That's for the std PAYG tariff. If you buy the £10 (or higher) goodybag, you get unlimited data.

I doubt we will get anywhere with it, Orange say they ask ZTE for the codes but ZTE said

I have got some disappointed information from our developing engineer.

The Unlock algorithm of OUK SKATE is supplied by Qualcomm. The provied us a package file to generate the 16-bit random number.

Flash with the unlock-ROM is our only method to unlock the locked device.


Which clearly can't be the case if they can be remote unlocked...

Not so fast. It's their only way without knowing the random#. If Orange don't share that # with ZTE then they really can't compute the code.

The really good news is confirmation it's possible to flash a ROM instead... now we need either a leak or some high power reverse engineering. Always easier when you know up front what you're trying to do is actually possible ;)
