Re: replacement SIM

Hi Brian601,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the community. 

 

I'm very sorry to hear this. Just to confirm were you sent an unlock code with the new sim?

Yes I got a code but I can't progress to any point where I can use this

Re: replacement SIM

When you enter the new sim card and turn the handset on does it not ask for the code?

Re: replacement SIM

No option for that it just says invalid SIM. Got a letter yesterday from virgin saying the old SIM will stop working soon so looks like phone has just days left.

Re: replacement SIM

 

This is the correct unlock procedure 

Remove SIM card

Type in #pw+CODE+7#.
If +7# does not work use +1#

1. To show p in the phones display - just press * three times within two seconds.

2. To show w in the phones display - just press * four times within two seconds.

3. To show + in the phones display - just press * twice within two seconds.
