Has any one tried the San Fran SIM unlock code generator?

Would be funny if they used the same system as that.

I don't think it's a matter of using a same system. I believe it is unique to the device and the IMEI

I know its the unique to each phones IMEI but it would be quite funny of they use the samw algorithm to generate a code.

I'm going to try it

I'm on Orange myself but I believe that Virgin default to the T-Mobile masts so it makes sense that they would use the same apn

Yeah that's what i assumed, been seeing some Virgin specific APNs round the web that's all. Thought that my 3G would be better considering i'm meant to be in an area that's "very good". Oh well! :wacko:

So... Stupid question, but can you pay £20 to unlock the San Diego after 3 months on T-Mobile? I'm not sure the networks are that closely integrated as companies, but I thought it was worth asking - Thanks!

Good god Orange are useless, I asked for my unlocking code on the 16th November and once again on the 22nd December and I'm still waiting. I tried again today and he "promised" to e-mail his manager as he can't see why it didn't go through the first time and to get back to me by Wednesday(we'll see).
By the way since the OSD still directs you to the iPhone section try the "how to use your iPhone" option(are all iPhone users stupid? :) ), it'll put you through to an Irish(?) CS office rather than an Indian one which helps with any language difficulties.

A few years ago when I wanted a phone unlocked by Orange it took me four attempts to get it done. Each time I called they swore blind it would be done within a few days, I gave them a week and nothing happened. After the first call each person I spoke to was very apologetic and promised immediate action, but it made no difference.

It was only on the fourth occasion when I was passed directly to some sort of elite technical support team that I got any help, he was UK based, I could hear him blazing away on his keyboard as we spoke and he looked up what had happened with the previous call (they'd done nothing), he actually sounded like he understood what I was asking for (rather than following a script) and he promised it would be done within 24 hours, which it was.

Basically your ordinary customer service rep probably doesn't know what to do, you need to speak to one of the real technical support people.

Actually this guy did seem to know what he was doing, I've spoken to Tech support before in Ireland(I think) and as you say, it's like talking to a real person who can use their brain rather than some pre-programmed robot who can only read the script in front of them and are totally lost when you go off script. He checked on the system and he thinks the first time I asked the agent did everything they should have(he didn't mention the second time) but he had no idea why it wasn't followed through.
The second time I asked the agent immediately gave me £20.42 credit(which arrived instantly) for my trouble with no prompting from myself so at least it wont cost me anything. /sigh

If anyone gets an unlock code, do a log cat when you enter it and unlock the phone, it might give some clues.
