since my contract is up iv requested orange to unlock my phone, they said they would for £20 but... they said id have to wait for up to a month for it to get unlocked. 1 month? :eek: why would it take so long to do? anyone else have any experience getting a carrier unlock done directly from orange for the iphone?

It's just the way it is unfortunately.

I've had both of my iphones carrier unlocked and both took around a month. O2 did it for free though, which was nice of them.

Why dont you try a local mobile phone shop on the high st??...one of the independant ones should be able to do it if they unlock phones...saves u from having to wait a month or so for an unlock code

I don't think shops can properly unlock it, they will probably just jailbreak it for you and you can do that yourself for free!

all is cool i got an email from orange today confirming the unlock has been done and with instructions on how to connecto to itunes and do it.

took about 2 weeks for them to do the unlock. so not too bad.
