Having obtained from my son his old 8320 Blackberry and having tried without success to connect to my router or any other open router EXCEPT for an ORANGE hotspot, here is the solution.
You will have to get the original owner of the phone to DEREGISTER the phone.
Here is an email from Orange UK that I have received.
"In order to resolve this issue, the customer will need to call Orange customer service on 150 from his Orange phone or 07973 100150 from any other phone if he is a Pay Monthly customer or 450 from his Orange phone or 07973 100450 from any other phone if he is a Pay As You Go customer and any of our Representatives will be pleased to assist you. They are available from 08:00 to 22:00, 7 days a week.
The Blackberry phone has to be de-registered from Orange and only he will be able to request that."
