Activate virgin mobile sim in new phone

I have just bought a secondhand iPhone SE 2020 and copied across all of my stuff from this phone (iPhone 6) to the iPhone SE 2020 but when I put the Virgin mobile sim in I get a message which seems to suggest that I need to unlock the iPhone SE 2020 and to contact my network provider (Virgin Mobile). I have the IMEI code for the new phone. Please advise how to sort this situation out.

regards. Nigel Dodd

Re: Activate virgin mobile sim in new phone

Surprised the SE 2020 is locked but if it is then it has to be the network it first registered on, no one else can do it.

Worse case scenario with a second hand phone is that it has been blacklisted.

Can you check the Virgin SIM is working in another phone to rule it out.
