    Ring orange they will probably unlock it for you free if you are out of contract. It takes a couple of days and all that's required is for you to sync your phone with iTunes when you get the nod from orange.

    Look online for a hardware unlock. Won't be free but should be a lot cheaper than $130. Also look in eBay as well. Good luck

    I would rather have written instructions as I find these easier to follow.

    I don't want to jailbreak my phone I any way, just permanently unlock the handset.

    You need to pay the money then op.
    No jailbreak, no free unlock
    Honestly the free unlock is more hassle than its worth anyways
    Find the cheapest (but respectable) one you can

    Managed to get my phone handset unlocked for free without jailbreak. It can be done, you just need to do some searching round.

    I think it would be appropriate for you to tell the entire community how you did it, to help others as they have helped you

    They usually charge £70, but did it for me for free as a wedding present.

    Well I suppose everyone here can't go off and get engaged to your significant other now for a free unlock...
    Congrats though, on both counts
