virgin sim in iphone

My son has been given an out of contract iphone. Can we just put his current sim on the Big Talk tariff into it or is there more to be done? Cheers

Re: virgin sim in iphone

Bear in mind that if the phone was previously in a contract it may still be locked to the original service provider.  If it was formerly a Virgin Mobile contract then this wouldn't be an issue but if it was in contract to say O2 then you might need to contact them to unlock it first.

Hi emsklyn,

 

if you do use the SIM in the iPhone be sure to turn off mobile data in the phone's settings.

There is no data included in Virgin's "Big Talk" tariff. If you allow the phone to connect it will end up costing you an extra £1 per day.
