Unlocking phones?

I'm going to buy a new phone in a bit and I need it unlocking as it's an Orange phone....how easy is it? I don't want to pay to get it done so can someone on here talk me through it?

Think you just need a code. I've seen some on Ebay for like 99p....you send them the IMEI number and they give you the code.
Does anyone know if these are legit and work?....99p is obviously nothing but If it's a waste of time then I'd rather know

Ok, bought it.
Do I need to register the orange PAYG sim first to get the phone active before I can begin unlocking?....I never had a PAYG phone and it just keeps giving me a 'Error validating phone number' message

AFAIK You should be able to go through the unlocking process without setting up the Orange SIM ,  i.e. just boot it with the foreign SIM in and unlock

just that it won't let me do anything? Asked me to set it up..time, date etc then asked me to put my WIFI code in, which I did and it connected but then gave me the error messgae and won't do anything now....I'm guessing it'll do the same when I put the O2 sim in....I'm thinking I need to register the Orange sim first....Do you have to register PAYG sims before they work?

Any reason you went for the San Francisco and not the HTC Wildfire? Bout the same price aren't they?

How much is that?....I just had a HTC, albeit the bottom end 'Smart' model (which was more £££ than this phone) and it went against a wall in the end!
 
I just installed the facebook app and it just keeps asking me to sign in?.....works fine if I go into facebook via the internet tab but using the app it won't let me in?....anyone else have this issue?

It's £149 on tesco mobile which uses the O2 network so no need to unlock it.

Then again the San Francisco is cheaper than it used to be. I've just seen it advertised for £99 which can't be argued with.

yeah, Argos have it for £89 but you have to buy the £10 talk time which makes it £99
