locked phone

hi.

i recently terminated my 30 day sim only contract, however it now appears that the phone is locked and unable to take Vodafone sim. When I first received the phone in  December 2014 the phone was unlocked , I have since used a Vodafone SIM card followed by talk mobile and then virgin . So can you please tell me why Vodafone are now telling me the phone is locked ?

many thanks

Re: locked phone

Hi Mhussain,

this sounds odd.

I've never heard of a handset (other than iPhone) being locked after purchase. And you say you have previously used SIM cards of different networks in the phone?

Are you now trying to use Vodafone or Virgin Mobile services?

Are you sure that it is network locked?

Are you able to go into the phone's settings > network settings, then manually select the network?
