Default Sim unlock for SPV C500?


I recently bought a C500. It turned out to have been bought over Ebay from a previous owner.

The problem is that the phone is sim-locked. Is it possible to unlock the phone without having an Orange sim?

The main problem is that i live in Denmark and I have no idea of where to get hold of an Orange sim.

So is it possible to remove the simlock without actually having an Orange sim in the phone?

Unlocking of Typhoon, Hurricane and Tornado is for free: use the tools linked from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?tzx4f489w8qlmwf

1.) application unlock the operating system (first folder tools)
2.) start lokiwiz in the second folder and select "S" for SIM Unlock
3.) the device will prompt for a confirmation to load itsutils.dll, confirm that

Action continues, device restarts and is SIM Unlocked.
