The Orange San Diego is SIM locked from the store, but accepts both Orange and T-Mobile SIMs (and has APN configurations for both, i'm using it with my T-Mo SIM atm!)

Post here if you find an unlock! :)

Right guys time to settle down and to stop insulting each other, these pointless argument posts have been removed. Now to answer the above First off the phone is yours as you put it but will be

The Orange store will tell you that you can't use T-Mobile - they're wrong.

Checked this out in store today felt pretty fast just waiting for a sim unlock now before I commit.

Damn, I'm getting more and more interested in this device, but it has to get a full SIM unlock... Hopefully there'll be one soon.

Doesn't Orange UK provide SIM unlock service (for a charge)?

Here in Poland Orange is pretty much the only carrier still selling locked phones, but you can unlock it for something about twenty quid IIRC if on contract, don't know about PAYG phones.

So it's another ~£40 to the price at the moment... (or less, as they seem to take the unlock fee off your PAYG credit?)

I guess if there is/will be a Lava Xolo x900 unlock, it should work for San Diego too, since it's essentially the same device - the SanFran unlock worked globally, didn't it? (I know, it's different manufacturer, different everything)

Not so sure it will work as I've just tried my sim in an orange locked phone and it gave me a network lock error. If it would take the sim I'd buy it today but without checking or there being an unlock its not worth the risk.

Most Orange locked phones only accept Orange. The San Diego accepts T-Mobile (including operators that use T-Mobile) and Orange

Looking at some old test roms it looks to me that the phone was planned to be release on T-Mobile but was switched to Orange. May be wrong though but it is weird how it works on both networks.

Even if it did start out on t-mobile they could've restricted it just to orange easily enough surely, seems that it's more down to them starting to integrate the networks more.

That makes sense.

I know though it is linked from another thread but it still needs root to do this manually. I don't know much about rooting or I'd have a go on the image. Assume nobody tried one click root over on xda?

Also if this is x86 them don't we just need a su binary compiled for x86? Would the emulator image help?

ChainsDD has already compiled a su binary, not sure about one click root because it's different architecture

Going to try it now, I can't take Orange data any more!!! giffgaff ftw

Oh wait.... That's a root app, there's no root for the San Diego yet :(

Data on t-mobile isn't so bad..
