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.

Has your handset been unlocked from T-mobile?

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

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.

Yep. I unlocked it myself and my Giffgaff sim works now as well.
