Hi _18,

you don't say where you bought your phone from. Obviously locked to a network but which network?

Re: Unlocking phone

Hi _18,

you will need to contact Tesco Mobile for an unlock code then before your new phone will accept a SIM from any other network.

You can contact Tesco Mobile on 0345 300 6660. I believe the charge for an unlock is £10.

Re: Unlocking phone

There is a possibility that the phone isn't Network locked. I say this because Tesco Mobile is a pseudo network like Virgin Mobile ie it share coverage with another network (Tesco Mobile shares coverage with O2). From my experience not all Virginmobile Handsets are network locked, so try the sim before trying to get a Network to release the unlock code to you.
