[ Edited ]

sounds like your phone is locked to another network. This isn't really something giffgaff can help you with.

What phone do you have?

Re: network key

You need to use an unlocked phone (or 02 locked). You need to get your phone unlocked.

Re: network key

Yes sim pin 1 is 5555 and pin 2 is 6666

BUT what the OP want's in my opinion is the code to unlock the mobile.

To do this you either need to contact the network the phone is locked to and ask for the unlock code usually £15 max or go to an independent market stall type phone retailer and pay for unlocking usually between £10 and £15.
