Ive been given an iPhone 3G from a friend, it was with orange he has phoned up and paid to unlock the phone and they said it was good to go, but I've tried to put my sim card in and reset the phone it won't register, is there any other way of checking if it has been done or another way of unlocking the phone without jail breaking it


iPhone 3G, Windows XP

    Only the carrier to whom the device is locked can unlock it.

     

    Has Orange actually sent your friend the confirmation that the device is unlocked?  This is not an immediate process.

    Did anyone actually follow the instructions and plug the phone into iTunes and restore after the message that the phone was unlocked was received?
