yeah it says unknown
ahh.... ok... can you put your sim in another phone?
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
nice hardware though
All I need to do is remove the little Orange logo from the battery cover.
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
I bought some little android stickers and put one over the Orange logo.
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.
ok done the apn stuff and no joy
though it didn't tell me the auth type pap or chap
found another phones setting page.. aparently it's pap
If you can get to the market on Wifi, download the giff gaff app, which sorts out apns for you.
I hadn't turned on data roaming, which was embarrassing when i realised.
you have to turn on roaming?
that i didn't know
You don't need to turn on data roaming.
wel then mine still doesn't work on giff gaff even after trying all the setting and even using the app
it's a bit annoying as they seem like a good service i just have no idea how to sort my phone and their help is ... well a free for al
Are you still using the stock ROM ?
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.
ok rom hacking next....
http://android.modaco.com/content/z...3154/rom-oled-tft-flb-froyo-g2-for-zte-blade/ This seems to be the best ROM out there atm. Unfortunately Cyanogenmod 7.0 (2.3) isn't ready for everyday use yet, but will be soon.
You done this yourself yet, Dave?
I used this guide:
Cool. I just need to sort this Internet connection issue . . .
fuck.. that fixed all my problems and actually improved my phone a fair bit
now... how do you set wallpaper...
