Re: orange network

Hello @harryandme an Orange branded iPhone 3GS will accept any Orange SIM but as advised in your other thread would need to be unlocked by EE(Orange) to use an EE SIM in it. Here is a link containing information on how to get your phone unlocked in case you missed my other post. :)

Yes, but can you get hold of an Orange PAYG SIM? EE has stopped supplying them.

 

If you'd rather unlock it to use any SIM then to unlock a 2nd-hand phone you need to call Customer Services to put you in touch with the Unlocking Team to request an Unlock Code. Use the landlines numbers in my sig. You will be asked for your email addy. They will take payment (of £8.99) from any valid bank card.

 

Once the process has been started you will receive an email from the Unlocking Team to process the unlock.

 

But even so beware that EE could still refuse to unlock it. Many phones sold 2nd-hand have been reported lost or stolen, have been sold by the original owner when under 6 months old without EE's permission or have money owing on them.

 

If that is the case your only remedy is against whoever you got the phone from.
