Default Anyone know how to SIM unlock an Orange UK Hero?

Hi All,

Getting my Orange UK Hero tomorrow, and need to unlock it so I can use my work SIM as well as the Orange SIM.

Does anyone know of a reliable unlocking company, or even a free solution for unlocking the Hero.

I realise this is early days, but any help would be appreciated.

Well for T-mobile US, you can just call customer service and say that you need your phone unlocked to use while you're travelling outside of the country and would prefer to use a local sim card while you're there. It's simply done for no charge.
I'm not sure Orange UK has the same policies, but you could always try.
