WARNING TO THOSE WRITING TO NVITEMS AND POTENTIALLY BRICKING THEIR PHONE(S):

One simple piece of advice, learned through doing the same and bricking my OMC...


Don't bother. Be patient, and wait for a proper unlock solution, unless you enjoy £120-160 paperweights. You're human, you get tired, and mistakes can be made (oh believe me!). I'm done with attempting to unlock my OMC; I'll let someone else with better experience, resources and funding, take that risk. Until the solution is out, I'm happy to wait.

Just my advice.

i would not go there... you can get a max of 5 year in jail for changing IMIE numbers..... Posted Image


I agree. Don't bother, even for the sake of your phone, but mainly for the sake of your freedom!

[UPDATE ON MY OMC]

Received new OMC today. CWM & BlueMonte installed flawlessly. My last unit must have been the odd one out :)

Same for me, really need to unlock the phone. Get it working on 3, then switch to Giffgaff when the contract is up

Yeah. I didn't even mean to do it. I flashed the wrong nvitems and it must have accidentally changed the imei. I realised when orange blocked it what I had done wrong. it was an accident but if you do it on purpose then it would be a problem.


I think you're a little naive to be publishing the fact that you did this, on a public forum.

How do Orange block the phone?...if it gets blocked when you put in an Orange sim card then...I was thinking you could put in another sim and then input the unlock code and then Orange will have no idea about it, I guess it doesn't work that way or someone would have figured it by now.

nope. Essentially it asks for an unlock code regardless of the sim. So you're stuck.
