    I used Swift Unlocks on eBay - responded very fast.

    By the way, you might have problems with Orange. They like messing-up the unlock procedure. Or at least that was the case with HTC Hero.

    htcunlock.com worked well for me, on orange. I did debrand the phone first, dont think that'd matter though.

    There are ways of unlocking phones without unlocking phones.

    The phone reads the network lock from the sim card. You can actually cut this part of ths simcard off.
