Rooting and unlocking

    Hi guys,

    I have just sold my Desire on eBay and the buyer received it today. It is Orange branded, however it was rooted and I was running MIUI. But before I sold it I flashed a rooted version of stock Froyo.
    But the buyer has got it today and an O2 sim would not work and was locked to Orange. Does rooting not unlock a Desire?
    If someone could clarify this for me please that would be grand.

    No, the SIM lock is something different.

    But unlocking the desire for free is not hard now - I can't really search ATM but I'm sure someone will post the link soon.

    Edit: ok, knew I'd seen it posted recently: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=943726

    Mine came unlocked, so I've not used this myself. If it works thank dannylill1981, whose post I got this from.
