Thread: Official Unlocked iPhones - NOT Officially Unlocked?

is a discussion within the

iPhone News

forums, a part of the

General iPhone

section;
Apple are just f***ing everything up for everyone now. It's definitely false advertising. Apple are now known to me as iDicks. A more fitting name, I think. Originally Posted by

    The point is that the French shouldn't need to use a 3rd party app, especially if they paid extra to get it "unlocked".

    The only reason that you need to provide Orange customer services with an address for is for them to post out the instructions telling you to restore your phone. Also I suppose to stop people from say the UK buying one to use in England. Luckly I my Family home is in france so I have an address there.
    If they fix this issue before a simunlock I'd be tempted to go to France and buy one... via va la France! Liberty!

    Mon Address? Sure Number 1 Château de Versailles, Paris...
    DESIMLOCK : Après cette étape qui se fait généralement avec Anysim ( ou unlock par exemple ) vous pourrez mettre votre sim et vous servir de votre iPhone avec le mode téléphonie. Tout sera 100% fonctionnel après cette étape.

    That is total crap. They arent really unlocked. Just unlocked to some carriers. I hope apple gets in trouble for this false advertising.

    I don't really understand why everyone is so upset? The phone's are unlocked for France, why would apple allow everyone to go to france and by an unlocked phone when they're selling them locked in Germany and England which is right next door? Come on now, this is still a business and there are a lot of politics in a huge corporation. Stop crying, and wait for the dev team to find an unlock or wait for the contract with ATT to expire. Where was everyone 5 years ago when the Razr came out? Only ATT had it, I wanted it but there was nothing I could do but either cancel and pay fees and sign with ATT or wait. So I waited for 3 years, finally got it.
    Stop your ******** about an fully unlocked phone, it's not going to happen for awhile!!!

    No data collected Sorry problem is you dont actually know when it will happen. I was restoring the phone every day waiting untill the unlock just kicked in.

    You cant just go to France and buy it unlocked Orange want ID, and a french address when you purchase it. Also when I activated it the iTunes asks for a valid french bank card to be added to the account. You would find it pointless buying one if you lived in England as you cant activate it through orange to then register for it to be unlocked.

    Why cry about it? I live in Spain and France one phone 2 sims makes sense. Better than paying to roam.

    The restore file is about 160 MB. You have to save the whole data you're getting and compare it with the "normal" download...

    ERM...if you paid 1000 euros for a phone that YOU EXPECT TO BE UNLOCKED and it isn't, then you might understand why people would be upset, perhaps?

    I think the fact that Apple has already acknowledged that this is a "bug", means they will fix it, so the phone will be a trully "factory unlock" for use in any country. Apple must have just overlooked this when they made their unlock software. I don't believe it was done on purpose.
