    it may be expired which would require you to buy a new sim card.

    Do you get a error message or any message at all?

  • Ekse Jun 27, 2008

    I tryed inserting that code there myself and got the following responce

    "We have not recognised this SIM number. Please try again, or if you need to register for Pay as you go contact 08000790006 or for Pay Monthly contact 07973100980"

    I would suggest you try another sim card on the phone.

  • Ekse Jun 27, 2008

    Contact orange for a new sim card. that should solve the problem.

SOURCE: phoned locked so i can only use orange sim card


You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile...
The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below
It has an video explanation.

If your mobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock code(NUC) by just contacting the current network provider customer caredepartment.It is free of cost.

Therestrictioncodecan be got from your old service provider..This restriction code iskeptto prevent someone who stole themobile from using it withanotherprovider...

They will have a security check done with your date of birth verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..

After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..

It is all free of cost donot pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.

The above proceudre works and you can verify that by seeing the rating of an happy customer here..

It appears you have a prepaid SIM card in your cell phone and you have used up all the available credit on this SIM card. You need pay/add money to this SIM card, go to an shop that you can pay to add credit (dollars) to your cell phone service provider's SIM card.

Iv got my old orange simcard and would like to active it?

Hi, if the sim card has been unactive for 3 months or more then that sim card is blocked and can no longer be used in any phone, if how ever you registered your details with that phone number from that sim card then what you can do is got a new sim card and contact orange and get them to give you your old number back, how ever their may be a problem with this if the number has been unactive for 3 months then it could have been given to someone else,
your best option would be to contact orange and ask them to see if the number is still not in use and if you can activate it again on a new sim card.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution, thanks

Limited service

Sounds like your phone is restricted to Vodafone. Each network generally puts a lock in the software to stop other network sims being used in it. If you know your phone is unlocked (sim free) then it could be that you have not activated your Orange sim card? Check the instructions that came with your Orange sim as i am sure that you need to call Orange to activate it? Hope that helps?

Yes. Just buy a pay as you go sim card and pop it in the phone but if you buy as sim from another network you may need to get the phone unlocked. What I mean is, if you are on Orange, for example, you will be able to use an Orange pay as you go sim but if the new sim is from T-Mobile you might need to get your phone unlocked

My orange phone displays "subscription problem" at start-up

hello there ....its quite need to call the customer care of Orange and ask them to register and activate your sim card is free...just keep the model number of your phone number handy (you will find that on the box in which you got the phone)...or the IMEI number (15 digits mostly) by dialing *#06# on your phone or beneath the battery or on the box near bar code....and your sim card number (19 digits mostly)on the back of your sim card the little chip that you put in your phone
that should solve the problem.....

you can also ask the for some freebies text message ,photo and videos messages ...many companies promote them....always good to try something for free before you start using it

phone numbers

Pay monthly mobile customers
150 from your pay monthly phone or 07973 100 150 from any other phone

Pay as you go mobile customers
450 from your pay as you go phone or 07973 100 450 from any other phone

hope this help
