    Hey guys i was just wondering if anyone has unlocked a Bold from Orange UK?? I have just got one and trying to get the unlock code from freeyourcellphone.com (found out that they are one of the best in the business).
    Well its been over 10 days since I placed an order with the website and till date they have not delivered the code.
    So I just want to know if anyone here has gone through this waiting period to unlock the Bold from Orange UK.

    Thanks.

    Edit - working days.

    From what I can gather 2 weeks is pretty much standard for UK handsets

    If you've got the Orange rental which is quite good, why do you want to unlock? 35, unlimited email, internet and texts and 600 mins calls is a good deal isn't it?

    Thanks bod! I understand that I suppose its also handy if you want to seel your phone on ebay and make a huge profit.

    Not that I will be parted from my Bold for a long time - spent too much money getting it

    well the reason for me for unlocking is that I live in Dubai. And since the phone is from UK, it has to be unlocked for it to work with the sim in Dubai. As the BOLD has not been release out here, everyone is getting them from outside the country.
    And yes I did pay a lot of dough for this baby....close to 400 sterling pounds....

    I stole my wife's Orange upgrade (Ipay her bill and manage the account for her), then put my company Vodafone sim in it.

    Just hope she doesn't find out.

    Just got one myself on same network - sent off for code - is it specific to IMEI supplied or will it work on any orange blackberry bold?

    Its specific to imei, when you order the unlock you have to give them the imei number and the network the phone is locked to.

    hey there. I was just wondering if freeyourcellphone.com is responding to your emails. I have sent them 5 emails in the last 3 days, but they are just not replying. I'm very concerned as its been 14 business days since i placed my order.
    Let me know if they are in touch with you and replying to all your queries.

    Thanks.

    the code I got from crackberry did unlock the phone and allows me to use another sim card - in this case O2 - but the phone is still registered to orange. Any way round, this as the person I got it from wont deregister it until the contract runs out.
