As you probably know, Orange have locked the phone to Orange SIM cards only. Luckily, it is possible to unlock your Orange San Francisco II. All you need is a little bit of patience and some free time on your hands. Our guide is designed with the absolute beginner in mind - our steps are very detailed and very easy to follow, for any age.

IMPORTANT: Before you begin, make sure you have backed up all files and contacts you need, as they will be lost during this process. Your SD card will not be touched, so any files (photos, music etc) will NOT be lost. See this video to learn how you can backup and sync your contacts with Google Contacts.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you begin with a fully charged battery.

IMPORTANT: If you have installed ClockworkMod Recovery or any custom ROMs, they will be removed from the phone. However, you can reinstall them once you have completed this guide, and you phone will still be unlocked.

IMPORTANT: If you follow this guide carefully, you should not run into any problems. However, there is always a very small chance that you may brick / destroy your phone. We are not responsible for any damage that may be caused throughout this guide.

Are you ready? Let's go!
