Hi,

About a year ago I unlocked my C500, no problems - despite not being too computer literate, but it cost me £20 for the pleasure. I can't find the link to that site now, and besides I would kinda like to avoid loosing £20. :) I've tried it on 98 and ME. Is there a specific version of Windows it likes? or is there a way around the error messages?

Cheers

Fraggle

You need to run the reg editor on the phone and not the PC.

Told you I was not good with technology!!!!

But thank you very much... IT WORKED!!!!!!

How happy am I? :) :D :P

Just goes to show... if I can do it... anyone can!!

am i missing some think here ? your phone needs to be decert before you can run & use the reg editer.
Microsaft and the likes of Orange et al restrict access to the OS by third party applications for 'security' reasons. This means any application not in posession of a Microsaft certificate will not install on an 'locked' device. Hence, they generally need unlocking (or decertifying).

Great little guide, thanks!

I needed to unlock my old orange C500 after ive destroyed by screen on my MDA Pro, so needed a phone until i get the insurance sorted.

One note however, the link in the guide to the Spv Services Application is out of date, the page has been turned into one of them annoying search pages, so i just googled it and found it easy enough,

Thanks Again ;) ,

Kenny

I need a backup phone and tried to unlock my C500 with this software.

I just get a screen saying "Action cancelled".

Is the software no longer functional?

Okay, It worked.

I tried it again and it worked perfectly (with both firewalls on)

I can only assume the site was down the first few times I tried it.

I am now happily using my unlocked SPV C500

Once I get my new phone back I'll be interested in updating the firmware now.
