USIM locked!

I have activated my sim and put a £10 goody bag on but my phone is saying USIM locked.  Any ideas what to do?

 

Thanks.

I think your mobile is locked. You need to unlock it. You could get it done at the local market stall.

You need to make sure that your phone is unlocked or locked to o2. If not you can easily go to your local market get it unlocked there :smileyvery-happy:

What make and model of handset do you have? Is it an LG?

 

Which network did you previously use?

Re: USIM locked!

sellers on eBay can provide you with a unlocking code for your phone, there are quite a few 'shops' on ebay that offer this service. Saves you a trip to the shops...

Re: USIM locked!

Look around for a unlock. Best to try the place where the phone is locked too. Or try online etc. You just need a code to unlock it.
