    Hello forum!

    So I have put myself in a tricky situation. I got an iphone 4 some time ago and it was bought in france, so it was locked to Orange France. I live in Portugal so I had to unlock it, wich I did using a GEVEY card. Everything was fine until stupid me decided to upgrade to iOS 6. So my GEVEY stopped working, and now I want to buy a factory IMEI unlock just to end all this troubles.

    So before I buy the imei unlock, I decided to do a factory restore just to be sure. Connected to iTunes, restored, installed the latest firmware, all was going smoothly, until I discover that after that, I need to activate the iPhone with a SIM card from the original network (Orange France) wich I obviously dont have.

    My question is: Can I buy a IMEI unlock from a legit website, and when the unlock is done I can activate my iPhone without trouble (buying an IMEI unlock for a non-activated iPhone), or should I somehow activate it first?

    Thanks in advance!
