Unlock code for old phone

Have upgraded monthly paid phone and was told by Virgin "help" desk in Philippines that my old phone was definitely unlocked.  Now in USA for holiday and try to buy local sim card for it, only to be told it is locked.

Please advise how I unlock phone while outside UK.

Do not feel I should pay for calls or unlocking fees.

Did you uninstall Mobile Rescue before putting the new SIM in?

Re: Unlock code for old phone

Discarding the App did unlock the phone.

T mobile sold me a one month payg contract which after two days and one return to their shop is still not switched on.I am not making this up.
