Dealextreme takes about a month to deliver, from the day the item has been shipped (not the day you placed the order). I suggest you wait until the end of next week.

errm what rom are you using?if you are using CM based roms it wont pop up to enter the unlock code.

you have to use orignal firmware then you get it. i.e. use FLB rom or flash the december update again and then re root (creat a nandroid before playing about)

its just the way it is with this phone.

i purchased the unlock code early this month and was running cm 6 0.4 by tom g but i had a nandroid of the tmobile official rom so just restored to that and entered code

also tmobile and orange haven't fully merged with each other yet. you can use each others signal but you will be roaming. so if you stick in your orange sim card it still requires to be unlocked, i.e. it will pop up if the sim is active i believe.

yes that is correct. you can do a nandroid back up of your current rom, then flash flb rom and then shut down your phone. remove battery. put in another simcard. swtich on and it will ask you for the code you purchased. once entered it will unlock the phone. then shut down/reboot into recovery. do a wipe and then do a restore. you should be set to go

oh dear that is an abysmal delivery time, wont be using them again :)

LOL its like a month...
