    I bought two HTC Hero on eBay (in UK), they ware marked as unlocked. The first works OK with my operator, but second one asks unlock code. I contacted seller and he gave me unlock code. It doesn't work. I bought unlock code on "" and it is the same code. The phone is locked to orange network.

    Here the detailed description of the bug:
    I inserted my local sim card, turn on the device, it asked "SIM network unlock PIN. To make an emergency call... bla bla bla". I entered unlock code I bought and press "unlock" it said "network unlock successful". After that it allows "emergency calls only", and if I try to call somewhere it said "Not registered on network." In "Settings/Wireless controls/" "Mobile network" item is grayed (as well as two above it). Firstly I thought that it is problem with my sim card. I tried two different sim cards (of two differen providers) all the same. If I insert orange sim card everything works excellent. If I reboot device with non-orange simcard inside it asks unlock code again.Actually if I just enter "00000000" it will say "network unlock successful" too, so It looks like this message means nothing.
    Additionally when I restored to factory defaults. It requested unlock code again, after I entered it it print dialog box "Unlocking sim card.." and that is all. I waited for about on 15 minutes - no progress. (
