    It is needed to complete certain information on a form which requires the postal code of the country. I have entered the address and country but not sure about the code. It is an on line form.

Phones are locked to their carrier so you cannot switch carriers with that phone. The subsidy code is a code that will unlock the phone so it can be used on different carriers. You can get that code from the previous carrier if they are nice enough. But most won't because you are not a customer anymore. Here is a way i recommended a T-mobile customer to get their phone unlocked for cingular.:

There are a couple of ways to do this, one is completely safe and the other is fairly safe, but may require you to mail the phone in to someone to have this done.

The best way is if you are still a T-Mobile customer, to call them and have some good reason to use it on a different carrier. The best excuse is that you will be traveling overseas and want to use carriers there so the calls will be cheaper. Do not let on that you will be switching carriers. They did my Razr for me and it took about 3 days for the code. When you call customer service, just tell them that you want to submit a sim unlock request. They will transfer you to a different department. They will gather info (like the phones serial number) and will email you the unlock code. Their website says that they will only unlock one phone per account every 90 days. But they unlocked 2 phones for me in the same phone call (both were razr's). Once you unlock it it can be used on any carrier except Verizon and Sprint (different technologies). Then just switch carriers. For more info on this you can go to T-Mobile.com and type in "sim unlock request" in the search box.

The other way, which may include mailing your phone to a stranger is having someone unlock it for you. There are services on-line that will do this. Some can do it without mailing the phone to them. But some require you to mail it to them so they can unlock it with a cable instead of the code. The usual cost is about $20.00

But the best way if you are not with T-Mobile anymore is to call around to authorized retailers and ask if the unlock phones. Some do it for about $20 (but no mailing it in risk) and some do it for free is you sign up to a new carrier through them. They want your business any way they can get it.

Which documents do you need to collect your new drivers license?

Quoting from the above link, assuming South Africa, which you haven't specified:

Getting a driver's licence in South Africa

Follow these steps to exchange your driving licence for a South African one:
  • Attend a driving test centre in the province where you are registered as a citizen
  • Complete the DL1 South African driving licence application form
  • Complete the change of address of particulars (NCP) form
  • Submit a series of documents (outlined below) for checking by the authorities.
  • The driving test centre will issue your South African driving licence
  • You won't need to take a driving test, but you may have to undergo an eye examination
  • When your new South African licence arrives, you'll need to return your old foreign licence.

To exchange your licence, you'll also need to be in possession of the following:
  • A form of ID such as a valid identification card, temporary ID card or South African passport
  • Four black and white photographs
  • Proof of your permanent residency in South Africa
  • Confirmation from the issuing authority that you have a valid licence
  • Proof of your residential address

How long it takes to receive your licence, and what fee you might need to pay, varies from province to province. Visit the South African government website for more information on converting your foreign driving licence into a South African driving licence.

My orange phone is not working in south africa


Your mobile is locked with network provider.So whenever you insert a sim, your mobile displays the message like "Invalid SIM" .After unlocking you can use it any network in your mobile. This unlocking can be done through codes. I found a free unlocking service at Unlocking4free.com .If your mobile model is listed here, you can unlock your mobile easily.

I think that you will need to purchase another sim card for this dongle as you will not be able to pick up the south african vodafone internet from the UK
make sure the dongle is not locked to vodafone if you want to use another network
hope this helps

American PS3 in South Africa


Hey thomas952,

While they may not be region-coded, PS3 consoles and games sold within the United States are going to be NSTC compliant, instead of the PAL format used in the United Kingdom and South Africa. What this means is that in order for any game to display properly (or even operate) it must be purchased from the same region of the world as the console itself - NTSC games can only be played on NTSC consoles.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
