    Hi everyone.
    I tried swapping a Orange sim for a 02 sim and it wont work.
    I contacted Orange who said I need a 'Network contol key' (NCK code).
    And then told me it would be £22.

    THAT'S RIP-OFF considering I payed £130 for the phone 9 months ago and have topped up credit well over £100. :mad:

    Is there a way of getting this without paying?

    Thanks everyone :)
    Disgruntled Orange customer :mad:

    welcome to ripoff world.. they lock the hardware to their network then they charge you to "release" it.. there is a way to get round this but it's probably going to be as expensive as paying them.. Take it to a back street repair shop and you can get the software reflashed to a straight factory binary unlocked all networks.. that usually costs between £20-£30

    Don't ask "how can I do this at home" because the simple answer is.. you can't.. you will need a specialist jig and connectors and guaranteed they work out far far more than £22.. more like £100

    Thanks ps.

    Off to the shop then. I'd rather pay the local lad than the big firms.

    Thanks again man
