I got a locked lumia 920 on Orange, Tmobile and EE in UK.
I just got to Spain and purchased an ORANGE prepaid sim, since my phone is locked to Orange.
But it seems I cannot get this to work, it acts as if its locked, and IT IS, but I am using an Orange sim just like in UK, why is this not working in Spain?

It's locked to Orange UK, not Orange as a whole. So you need to get it unlocked.Windows Phone Central Moderator "Fortune cookie said: 'Outlook not so good'. I said: 'Sure, but Microsoft ships it anyway'." - Apparently you can have an iPhone transplant...

No, you can't get unlock codes for a 920 for free, at at present the turnaround seems to be about 7 days - I ordered one for mine on the 7th and it arrived this morning (that was via fonefunshop.co.uk). Cost was £35.
Lots of online unlock sites will claim to provide instant unlocks but the reality for something as new as the 920 is that the process takes longer because the sites themselves don't generate the codes directly.
You might want to try calling Orange and seeing if they will generate a code for you, but that will also take some days to come through I would think (although it may well be quicker than an online source). They do have an admin fee (£20 IIRC) and some criteria - think you have to have been in contract for three months before they will generate the code.

Offline maps should work. Get on a WiFi connection and try and download them :)Windows Phone Central Moderator "Fortune cookie said: 'Outlook not so good'. I said: 'Sure, but Microsoft ships it anyway'." - Apparently you can have an iPhone transplant...

Since Nokia gives you either global maps or local maps for Nokia Drive, based on the location you are in, which in turn it bases on the sim card in the device, you should have downloaded the global or european maps to the device while you UK sim was in it.
