This is due to the fact that your phone is simlocked for one provider, in your case Orange. You have to ask them for the code to unsimlock it According to the countries, this can be done for free (in several european countries, you have to prove you've been owning the phone for at least 3 to 6 months and your provider has to give you this information). There are other possibilities to have your phone unsimlocked : some shops do it, sometimes legally, sometimes not, with costs that may vary..

There can be many ways to Unlock your phone. As far as i know unlocking by codes is the simple and safest way.unlock using software delete some information in memory i unlock my phone using codes ,i got codes from http://www.mobile-unlocker.com/sony-ericsson-w580i/rs2wp9/you can unlock your phone here I used codes to unlock my cell phone. i had my unlock code and my phone was unlocked. you need to specify the country and network provider
PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times, This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUk if PIN is blocked...
if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM
It might be worth looking at whatever plans you have. When you unlock your blackberry it still needs a sim card from some provider. When you unlocked and put in your new simcard, you bought some sort pf alternate phone/ Data plan did yopu ask for a mpa of areas that your nwe plan works from? They usually have a map of coverage that will show you if you had coverage in mexico. If not then it has nothing to do with the unlock it has to do with whatever provider you use doesnt servoce the area. Then tyhe answer is to get yuet another sim vcard with another plabn that works there. . Addtionally depending on where your blackberry came fromm it simplymay not puick up the proper frequencies as phones in meixco use,.. I know people who got their unlocked decvice from the middle east or africa or south america and those devices simply don't use the same frquency as the US or Canada does. If your device was orignally from Rogers then if you have no probnlem with getting services to work in the US or canada or even the US virgin islands which Roghrs does cover but at an astoundingly high Calling and Data rate ( like $1.35 Per minute vouice and .35 cents per KB in the carribean .. then it might just be the phones settingts which RIM puits in depending on whare they intend to have the device sold ..they seell worldwqide so if your fivice was designed fo Asia it simnply might not use the bsame frequency as US or candain devices
Check the coverage map of whatever planyou have from whatevber alternate provider your going wiyh ..you had to get another sim cartd to get the devie working. That sim card has to be attched to some sort of data and voice plan. check the coverage and then look into where you bought your blackberry and whre yuour tring to use it from . if it's rogers check and see if the devioce itself wll work in Mexico ..it just might not. Riogeers isn't really interested in making it easy for you to use servoces from far awat. Theres no compitition and as small population. They don;t have to do anything more then possible, I have had a regular cell from Riogersa that worked throughout the carribean..but nbot in othr arteas at all. . I have a blackberry noi but I have another friend who went deeply into brazil and other areas and while devices locally bought( even smart phiones) worked. Devices bought in North America don't work in some countries. It;s like DVD encoding. If you buy a DVD that is coded for the Middle east it won"t play on your DVD thats supposed to be for use in North ameica. Smart phones have some simiolar restrictions locked or unlocked ,
When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :- This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone. They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone. Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.
You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service. The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services.Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.
