NETWORK LOCK CONTROL KEY

Ive just received my Giffgaff sime. Ive activated it online, but when I put it into my phone (Samsung Galaxy S11) it asks for the Network lock control key. Where do I get this from? Im currently with three network.

Re: NETWORK LOCK CONTROL KEY

You get it from three.

Your phone is locked to Three network and won't accept a GG SIM until you pay 3 to unlock the GS2.

Or you find a back door unlock method.

Yes, you need to get you S2 unlocked either by visiting a phone shop, or do it yourself by following this set of guides:

You can check that the S2 is in fact locked by daling this code: *#7465625# (View Phone Lock Status)

Re: NETWORK LOCK CONTROL KEY

You need to unlock th phone. Ask 3 network or take to a local unlock shop. You might be lucky and find a code on ebay
