Orange 3G modems unlock

In France when you buy a phone after 6 months you can ask the operator for an unlock code. Is it the same in Switzerland?

Im interested in buying a 3G modem, will I be able to unlock it later?

Orange won't unlock anything except for the iPhone (once the contract's up). I tried getting Blackberrys and other devices unlocked from them: no chance. Not even US unlocking services will unlock Orange Switzerland phones :-(

If you live near Germany: go across the border and get a 3G USB modem from Tschibo there. They're cheap (under 100 Euro) and are SIM-lock free. You could also check Aldi Switzerland - I've seen unlocked sticks there, too

Re: Orange 3G modems unlock

I grabbed an unlocked 3G modem from Ricardo.ch for less than 70CHF last week. Looks like it came from T-Mobile in Germany.

Re: Orange 3G modems unlock

I unlocked my Sunrise USB Dongle (Huawei) with DC-unlocker.
Takes one minute, costs 4 Euros.
There might even be free ways to do it, but I couldn't be bothered.

Re: Orange 3G modems unlock

Pretty much all operators will unlock their devices after 2 years. I think it's a law in Switzerland (but I can't find info to substantiate that).

Anyway, Orange will unlock after 2 years:
