Question about Apple Cell Phones

1 Answer

I have an unlocked iPhone 2G,which I've been using on Orange UK for 2 years. I want to change to Vodafone (better reception where I live). I think it was probably originally an O2 phone (as they all were in UK at that time), so, if I ''restore factory settings'', will it revert to O2, or will I then be able to use it ''officially'' as a Vodafone iPhone? Do I need carrier settings for this? or will they come when I insert my Vodafone simcard?

If your Iphone is officially unlocked then it should work with any (other) network compatible SIM card - just insert a friend SIM on another network (or just get a 'free' Vodafone pre-paid starter SIM for testing) and turn-on the unit - if it is locked in any way, it will tell you!
When you do a factory reset, your unit will normally reverted to original 'o2' BRANDING and defaults: this can only be removed by reflashing/reprogramming your iPhone with 'generic' Apple Iphone firmware. 'Branding' in general in an unlock hanset will not stop you from using most of the resources of your new network but 'unbranding' (andor 'unlocking') can always be performed by a qualified technician.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go! Have fun.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for this. As I bought the phone on eBay, I can't be sure that it was originally an O2 phone - however, they all were in the UK! "

I cannot unlock the PUK on my Samsung D900 on orange and vodafone. Heeelllp!!!!


The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.

If you are in UK, contact is below, otherwise use google to find contact number in your area.
