All I know is that the default language for me out of the box was English, and activatiing with a french itunes account do not change the iphone language, it stayed set as English.
I assume you reveived the unlock letter from Orange? Did you plug in phone, then power off and power on while still connected?
I am glad to report that here, in the Czech republic, the unlocking happened as follows:
This morning I connected the iPhone to my Apple iTunes with the local provider SIM inserted. After about 30 seconds I got a message: Congratulation, you phone is now unlocked.
I downgraded to 1.1.1, jailbreak out of boot lock, install OKTOPREP, updated back to 1.1.2 (carefully, NOT RESTORE but UPDATE), jailbreak, install iWorld, set Czech Republic and now everything works as you would expect.
I was just too damn impationed - it took a while to ship the unlock order from ORANGE to APPLE.
Excellent. Now Apple should release a fix for the mainstream users who have legitimately bought the unlock but cannot use it without jailbreaking.

Dear French iPhone users
Dear French iPhone users,
as this thread indicates there seem to be quite a few legally unlocked Orange iPhones out there.
The iPhone community desperately needs your help to do some cryptoanalysis on the unlocking mechanism so that the total
iPhone ripoff e.g. in Germany (1575€ total cost of ownership ) can be brought to an end.
Now we need to gather lots of legal unlock codes to find patterns in them, so we might be able to generate them ourselves one day.
George Hotz, the guy that first managed to unlock an iPhone, has programmed a tool that can extract your unlock code.
If you want to return something to the community that has given you so much (Jailbreak, Unlock, Games...),
please consider downloading the file, following the contained instructions and sending George
this desperately needed information along with your IMEI (Just press *#06# on your phone and it will come up).
We ask for your IMEI, as there is almost certainly a relation between IMEI & Unlock Code, needless to say, this information will be kept absolutly private.
You can find more information and status reports on George's blog:
Merry christmas everyone...

I do not what to have to restore my jailbroken phone, and the read me file is not very clear. I have asked several times for clarification about this issue, but no one answers.
No clarification, no chance of running the code. Sorry.
unfortunately I don't have an unlocked iPhone yet so I can't be a 100% sure but I will try to contact him about this issue.
My guess is that he needs some values in the memory which are created during the firmware installation process and messed up by the iTunes activation.
If your phone is already activated with iTunes, you can "restore" to factory settings to get back your virgin memory.
After restoring, however, you will have to do your jailbreak again.
If you need help for this, I'm at your service.

The issue for me at the moment is work pressure and the time to jailbreak again. I can of course do that , but at the moment I simply do not have time. maybe next week.
But yes, my phone is already activated and unlocked.
