    What country is your SIM from ? You need to jailbreak and install iWorld or some other fix.

    But ...... did you get a message in iTunes regarding the unlock? Have you forced a sync? Activation is not unlock.

    So I suspect your phone is not yet unlocked.

    Hi,

    I'm in Portugal. I know about the iWorld requirement. I have other iPhones from the UK, using TurboSIM and jailbreak+iworld.

    I checked the Orange SIM credit it they already took the 100eur but everytime I do the Restore thing, it only gets Activated, not unlocked. Is this standard procedure and my only option it to wait?

    Thanks.

    I am going to call Orange support on Monday to get my phone unlocked, but I wonder; if I dont need the letter, can I just pick a random address in France? Or do they send abroad?

    Thanks!

    Kevin,

    Just wanted to let you know that the iworld installation worked like charm.
    Up and running now. Thank you!!


    thesman,
    You should contact Orange Customer Support to check your status. Perhaps the IMEI you gave them was wrong?

    loozet,
    They dont send letter abroad. At least they told me that.

    Are you sure it is enough to fill the prepaid card to 100 E?

    Do you know the Orange Customer Service number?

    I have just called one I found on their website and it is an automatic responder - you cannot talk to human - and no option for "Iphone activation/unlock"....

    Anybody can confirm how exactly works the process with Orange including CS phone number?

    call Service Client - + 33 6 07 62 64 64

    You need to have a prepaid top up card and the IMEI of the phone. Give them both, they will send you a letter ( I assume it can go to a false address ) that notifies you that the unlock is ready. I never saw my letter. I was unlocked after 3 days.

    I just called Orange France. If what they say is true - it is excellent. They say - that if I put the Orange France sim card inside - they will unlock my telephone for free and I can use it with any sim afterwards. But I need first to put the orange sim in.

    So what I am going to do is to put the sim of my friend - he calls Orange , unlocks my phone and then I have unlocked US 1.1.2 OTB!!!

    Now I am interested in this route and could use all info you guys have gathered.

    Here is my situation.

    I am activated w/ ATT in the US and have an OTB 1.1.2 phone. I fly for an airline and work in Paris about 2-3x a month and carry a french work visa.

    Would it be possible to buy a prepaid orange card 100 euro, go to the orange store, seek and unlock on my US phone, and expect this to work?

    How would I start this adventure next time I am in Paris? I stay at the Mercure Eiffel and the orange store near the hotel had no idea on this the day after they started the unlock? So where in the Eiffel area would be the best location for this to be done.

    The unlock is _only_ done via telephone/ service client. The stores do not do the unlock.

    The number is listed above. They want your IMEI plus details of your prepaid card. If they do this for you, can you report back?

    Default Unlocked French iPhone and SIM cards

    New news for unlocking by French Customer Service... I just got a second message from Customer Service - they unlock only the Iphones bought in France.....

    Previous CS agent told me that they were unlocking ALL the Iphones - never mind where it was bought....

    The only information which was confirmed by both is that then it is unlocked for all the sim cards and that a current user of Orange can unlock an Iphone .
