    Thanks! Thats the only problem:/ I can`t speak French..

    Do they have a webpage where i can order this prepaid card? Or a place to send the IMEI online? Atleast a English support number?

    Actually I think there is a 30 euros prepaid card with my iPhone allready. It says "USIMIOD PREPAID" with some numbers and the Orange logo on. It is possible to fill this up with 70 more and then get they to unlock the Phone?

    Thanks again!

    EDIT: I have allready jailbreaked my iPhone and installed iWorld, so that should be OK.

    Regarding the crashing issue. What the hell are Apple doing? Are they not willing to fix it? Thats just crazy! This whole process to unlock/activate the Iphone I find very awkward.

    loozet,
    If you have 30 Euros in your orange sim, you can fill till it reaches 100 euros to request the unlock. But the payment can only be made in a Orange shop, or if you have the phone more than a month, using you VISA card in the Orange website (you have to create your account)
    Any problem, you can also call Orange customer service from abroad and ask to speak in english. I did it and they were quite friendly.

    Great spear!

    Then I will try to call them tomorrow One thing, you dont have the exact link to where I can use VISA to pay for the unlock, by filling up the prepaid card? Beacause I allready have a user on orange.fr, but finds it a little bit hard to understand all the french text and menues

    Thanks again guys!

    Regarding the unlock it is ONLY does via Service Client over the phone. Some of the guys on the support live speak broken english, and they can put you on hold to wait for an English speaker.

    The shops will not initiate unlocking.

    Before you call make sure you have the IMSEI number.

    I am not a prepaid user, so I think it never display an option to top up my card. Sorry.

    Personally I find the site a nightmare. Don't tell people I did the underlying technical architecture for Orange :-)

    There are several tools and choices: I started here:

    http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/how-to-install-apps-in-iphone-1'1'2/how-to-install-applications-on-iphone-112-video-tutorial-328365.php

    I followed these instructions:

    1.1.2 Jailbreak (Updated)

    **** NOTE: This method currently requires you be on 1.1.1 of the firmware. If you are on 1.1.2
    you must downgrade prior to being able to use this jailbreak. ****


    Updates:
    - Activation/YouTube for iPhones
    - Added an automatic fix for SpringBoard crash problem on touches
    - PPC support
    - Some improvements to crossplatform compatibility



    Step 1: Downgrade to 1.1.1 (if required)
    *** NOTE: This guide does not guarantee it will work 100%. Also errors 1015 is expected at
    the end of the process. Continue reading to understand. ***

    1. Download the 1.1.1 ipsw firmware file from Apple. If the downloaded file has the extension
    ".zip", please remove it and modify it to end up with a filename ending in _Restore.ipsw

    2. Reboot your iPhone holding the top (power) and home buttons BUT release the top button 10
    seconds into it (right after the screen goes dark) and continue to hold the home button until
    iTunes detects the phone in recovery mode. The iPhone screen will appear to be off, but start
    iTunes if not started yet .

    3. Restore your iPhone by pressing and holding the ‘Shift’ key on windows or ‘option’ key on Mac,
    then click ‘restore’ to select the 1.1.1 firmware file you downloaded earlier. The restore should
    go through and errors at the end with error 1015. However you will notice that the iphone is in
    DFU mode with the connect to itunes screen from 1.1.1.

    4. In order to kick the phone out of that mode, start TouchFree by double-clicking "windows.bat"
    on Windows or "jailbreak.jar" in OS X, then click the "Boot from Recovery" button.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 2a: Jailbreak 1.1.1 on Unactivated iPhone
    *** NOTE: If your phone has been activated through iTunes, you can proceed to step 2b. ***

    1. enter *#307# press call, now use the back button on the top of your screen to remove *#307# ,
    now enter 0 , press call, press answer, press hold, press decline. And you get to the contact
    list. And thereafter every time you push the homebutton you just slide the "emergency call"
    slide, then enter 0 , press call, press hold, press decline.

    2. Push contacts, end call and you get called again, this time hit decline and you access one of
    menus with favorites, you can edit contacts, do a test ride on keyboard, take photos etc.

    3. Now edit a new contact and type in "prefs://11" as web-address and "http://jailbreakme.com" as
    an additional URL.

    4. When you tap "prefs://11" you can now select your favorite WiFi gateway.

    5. Now press the home button and move the slider to the dial-pad.

    6. Now you can go back to the contact list by Dialing 0, push call, then answer, then contacts,
    then hit the "http://jailbreakme.com" web address you typed in.

    7. Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will exit and you'll return to your
    springboard. Wait for the phone to reboot. You are now jailbroken. and are able to use
    Installer.app.

    Step 3: Prepare your 1.1.1 device for the Update

    1. Launch Installer.app

    2. Scroll down to Tweaks (1.1.1)

    3. Select OktoPrep

    4. Click Install

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 3b: Prevent SpringBoard crash on previous hacked iPod touches

    If you have installed MobileMail on your iPod touch, there is a chance an update to 1.1.2 will
    render your device inoperable until a restore. This issue can be prevented by switching Auto-Check
    off.

    - Go to General->Mail->Auto-Check. Set it to Manual.

    If you forget to do this step and update, proceed with the jailbreak in step 5 (even though
    SpringBoard is unusable) and we will fix it for you.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 4: Update to 1.1.2

    1. Connect your device to your computer

    2. Launch iTunes

    3. Choose your device

    4. Click Update
    - If update still shows 1.1.1 as being the newest version, you may download the 1.1.2 from an
    Apple download server and shift-click (PC) or option-click (Mac) on "Check for update" and
    select the update you downloaded.

    - DO NOT CLICK OR SHIFT-CLICK RESTORE: That will wipe the changes OktoPrep made.

    5. Wait forever for your device to update

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 5: Jailbreak your iPod Touch or iPhone

    WARNING: If your iPhone is unactivated, it will be factory "hactivated" for you and YouTube enabled.
    If this is not desired behavior, activate your iPhone with iTunes before proceeding.

    1. Close iTunes

    2. Connect your device to your computer

    3. On Windows, double click on windows.bat, on Mac, double click on jailbreak.jar

    4. Follow the on screen instructions.


    I believe there might be an easier way now with an update from Independence. However I cannot comment on the update.

    hi,

    I'm having a big problem, I bought 2 french iphones, payed 649eur for each, "recharged" the sim card with 100eur 2x(twice). This has been almost a week ago.

    I already received the letter with the instructions.

    Now, I'm trying to get it "unlocked" but no luck. I restored the iPhone to factory defaults, when it boots with the Orange SIM it automatically activates.

    Then, I try to replace the Orange SIM with my own, but it says the SIM is invalid and the iPhone can't be used with my SIM.

    What should happen here for it to get really unlocked?

    Cheers.
