New Sim Problem

I have tried the new SIM in my phone but did not work. Was given two codes to try by Virgin but am unable to input them. My phone is an old non-smart Siemens A65.(not even got a camera). Having input the codes it just states "disabled! NETWORK LOCK." and SOS is the only tab that comes up, so there is no way to input the codes. Help.

Re: New Sim Problem

Problem is there seems to be a number of different codes to start the input on these phones. I can't tie it down to one of the options

Option 1 - Siemens Models

1. Turn on your phone with a SIM card that's not the original network, IE not allowed
2. Type the following: * # 0 0 0 0 * YOUR_CODE_HERE #.
3. The phone will now be unlocked




Option 2 - Siemens Models

1. Turn on your phone with a SIM card that's not the original network, IE not allowed
2. Type the following: * # 0 0 0 1 * YOUR_CODE_HERE #
3. The phone will now be unlocked

Option 3 - Siemens Models

1. Turn on your phone with a SIM card that's not the original network, IE not allowed
2. Type the following: * # 0 0 0 4 * YOUR_CODE_HERE #
3. The phone will now be unlocked
