    Anyone in the know about this sort of thing? It has to be a factory unlock, and the phone is with Orange.

    Cheers guys.

    I just asked o2 for an unlock code and that worked for me, why can't you ask Orange the same?

    Just jailbreak it mate.



    EDIT: wait... iphone 4 uses micro SIM right? And no other providers use those sims? Am i missing something or... are you in fact gonna end up with an unlocked phone you can only use with O2 anyway? :/

    ...buy one off eBay for a couple of quid, use it to cut a standard sim to micro sim size, jobs a good'un.

    All networks offer the iPhone 4/S and therefore provide microsims if needed.

    Any Network provider that sells the IP4/4S must supply micro-sims, so that means you can get a micro-sim from any network as they all punt 'em out now.

    Not sure if Jailbreaking unlocks you know, never really looked into it. I think you can change the baseband after JBing which then means you can unlock it...i think.

    We all have to pay mate, theres no such thing as a free phone from a Network.

    The Nexus i know is good but HTC's, nothing seems to change with them design wise.

    i am not talking about the price of the phone. I am talking about the OS. On android I can make apps for free.. I have to pay a hundred quid for that pleasure on an iphone? really? fuck off you money grabbing, copying cunts. Seriously, the only good thing about apple is their marketing.

    Fair enough, i do fail to agree though on your comment about Apple's marketing being the best thing about them.

    different folks, different strokes etc.

    For me they offer nothing useful, so I just think it is their marketing that is clever.
