"Enter Network Lock Control Key"

Hi,

 

I just joined Giffgaff and today is the transfer date for my number from T Mobile. When i tried the sim to see if the transfer is done, I get this message. I can dismiss it but I just want to make sure what this is and whether this will effect my transfer. Otherwise I can only make Emergency Calls at the moment.

 

Thanks

The phone is probably locked to t-mobile. So it will require unlocking

Re: "Enter Network Lock Control Key"

What kind of phone do you have?

 

Before you go and spend money to get it unlocked there may be a tried and tested free method to unlock it.
