Hi GeorgeD,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting. I'm very sorry to hear you're unable to use your SIM card in your new handset.

 

It's sounds like the iPhone 5s is locked to the previous network. Do you have any idea who this might be? They're the ones who need to supply the unlock code.

 

Hope to hear from you soon.

 

Thanks

Hi Rich,

 

Thank you for replying to me, I have contacted the previous owner of the phone and he says it was on o2 so he has hopefully filled out and sent of the forms needed to get it unlocked. Hopefully that will work!

 

Kind regards, George
