    Talking Orange to sell unlocked iPhones in France

    Man, this will cause a shit storm....

    http://www.engadget.com/2007/10/17/o...one-in-france/



    Well, well... looks like Apple has been backed into a corner by French law and will be releasing an unlocked iPhone in France after all. While no one will say precisely how much the unlocked iPhone will cost (the locked Orange-network iPhone will cost 399) those details are expected to be announced sometime before the November 29 launch. Of course, laws forbidding the exclusive bundling of cellphones to carriers are not unique to France.

    So you buy one - lift the baseband and the software, duplicate on the 'net and flash everyones phones - must make it easier for the dev team

    BINGO. Having officially unlocked iPhones available will make the dev team task way way easier.

    I don't know about that. The unlocked iPhone will probably only work with french carriers. So DEVTEAM will still need to get access to the phone to somehow pretend that a french sim is inserted. They will probably make the jailbreak and writeaccess part very difficult.

    Unlocked means it has to work with all carriers.

    It's the way their law works - it doesn't mean open to French only carriers...

    Prepare for hefty price of €1000!
    It's going to be expensive, no matter what.

    There is no fucking way a phone will be sold for 1000 euros. It will be more around the 600-700 euro mark.

    it would still be different for each phone the unlock would be tied to the IMEI just like every other phone on the market . you would ring them after buying, quote you IMEI then be asked to enter the unlock code. Its not something you could just copy and flash to another phone.

    Best bet if if we find someone that is working for Orange and get a copy of the code generator, then everyone could unlock their phones the proper way and no more ipsf
