It's not up to ZTE though, it'll be up to Orange and in my experience they are rubbish when it comes to upgrades.

It's a hoax! It's now the 2 July and there's no sign of the update! Where is it?

ZTE have confirmed no update for Orange San Francisco as Orange own firmware rights,

Go to XDA devs forum and update it yourself.

You don't need orange bloted update. you can get yourself a clean froyo rom from modaco forums.
however it is still good news as it is phone specific official factory update. can't wait to istall it (still using 2.1 orange cleaned and rooted though)

Hello,

Having recently purchased an Orange San Francisco, I discovered Paul O' Brien's video (MoDaCo) and decided to try an unlock code. Having successfully installed the unlock code, I fitted an O2 card in my phone. I then tried to connect to the Internet. Impossible!

What Paul O' Brien hasn't pointed out, is that each network provider has to provide their own settings. I was surprised, on contacting O2, to be told that they can't supply the settings! Why? Because they don't sell the phone!!

It seems impossible to use any other network provider's card (internet use) on an Orange-branded phone!

I have verified this with O2; only if they sell a particular phone, are they able to supply internet settings. So, for me, a disappointing and wasted journey. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, is there a solution? Many thanks.

Google for O2 APN settings. You need to manually enter them into your phone. If you can't find it wait a little and someone will provide exact instructions. Too late to fix it today.

Exactly. just search for the O2 internet setting and enter them in wireless/networks under "APN".
o2 - like all networks - pretend if they don't sell a device, then it won't work. they do not want to tell you. APN/websettings are NOT phone specific.
It's a myth that they are. in the olden dumbphone days every phone had it's own weird menu structure. and enetering settings could be a complex thing. there was the difference - not the settings BUT how to input them. customer care in those days couldn't be arsed to look up how to enter settings into a winmo device, so they'd just say, "sorry, your phone's unsupported". that way you're out of their hair, and maybe you even fall for the con and buy one of their own phones ;)

All phones on any given network use pretty much the same settings. there are few exceptions....

@Ludouno Just install a custom ROM; most come with all APN settings. Maybe CyanogenMod?
