Unlock Code

Good evening,

How do I go about getting a network unlock code for my old Samsung S6?

Regards

Re: Unlock Code

Was the S6 provided by Virgin in the first place?

If so, complete the form here.

Hi, thank you for your response.

It was provided by Virgin. I have tried the form and it's saying there is no unlock code for my imei?

Guess it's a call to 789 then?

Re: Unlock Code

In that case are you sure the phone is locked? Have you tried a SIM from a different provider? One that is not EE based such as Three, O2 or Vodafone etc.

Else did you read the IMEI directly from the phone? As opposed to a label on the box? Was the phone ever sent away for repair?

Was the S6 a pay monthly or PAYG when you bought it? Pay monthly handsets should have been supplied unlocked for the past few years.

Re: Unlock Code

Its a contract phone from 3yrs ago.

It's sounds like it could already be unlocked then. Didn't realise they did that these days. 

Will try another sim in it tomorrow.

The Imei number came from the phone itself.

Thank you for all your help it's much appreciated.
