    Just brought a phone of Ebay. HTC Desire locked on the orange network. Contacted 5 companys, all saying that my IMEI is not on there database and so can't generate an unlock code. So I ring Orange up and they say I have to register with them and then be with them for 3 months untill they will send me the unlock code which is outrageous. I am still on a o2 contract

    Yes they are, but I bought an Orange HTC Hero which was supposed to be unlocked off Ebay. I spoke to Orange and the guy said "yeah sure, just get an orange pay as you go sim and we will sell you one". So I did.

    Called back "you need to use it for 3 months..."

    So I bought one off the internet. Didn't work because the phone had a crappy Orange ROM on it so I had to root it and flash a custom ROM just so it would accept the unlock code. Bloody Orange.

    Worked though.

    Its all academic anyway with the unlock utility.
