    Hi Shippou-Sensei

    Have you fully registered the phone yet? You should be asked to set up a 4 digit security code when you do so.

    If you contact our Customer Service Helpdesk on 450 from your Orange phone or 07973 100450 from a fixed line, they should be able to help resolved this for you.

    I hope this helps.

    acutually i just unlocked it and switched to giff gaff

    having a completly broken account website was the last straw. i can't acces this web site with safeguard on and i can't switch safeguard off because an error happens each time i go to do so in the acounts part of the site

    oh and as an update all the codes got sent eventually, it takes about 48 hours for you to be actually be able o use your phone as a phone

    the accounts website is really kinda broken... especially the login and trying to change settings.

    also their voice recognition software fucks up on some stuff ... like my surname which is double-barrelled, it just wouldn't take it

    overall i'd still recommend the phone but orange as a service provider less so. they arn't compleatly broken but they have issues. a real problem for me is there is fuck all signal in my house

    mind you right at the moment my giffgaff internet isn't working so i maight have to switch back

    aparently giff gaff have a known issue where sometimes the internet doesn't get unlocked on sims

    i've sent a message to them and it should get sorted within 24 hours


    and i'm going to have to get an anime sticker

    have you inputted the APN settings from giffgaff into your phone's settings (you do have to do two separate APNs, one filling in only the GPRS/3G settings data, the other with the MMS data) ?

    I had to set up the internet by following some instructions to do with Access Point Names.

    If you can get to the market on Wifi, download the giff gaff app, which sorts out apns for you.

    Well, I'm finally in possession, I've unlocked it and even received a call. Yeeha!

    This internet thing might be a little more challenging . . .

    Srsly ditch the Orange stock ROM, it's utter garbage and severely restricts the use of the phone imo.
