sticky situation..

I have recently bought a refurb phone from virgin, which works only on virgin sim. (Shanencr has kindly offered me one:) )

NOw, i just discovered that i will need to top up at least £30 to get it unlocked, as i occasionally need to use my Orange sim with it as well. I am skint at the moment and it will take me ages to save up to that amount. :-(

Am wondering if there's any existing Virgin payg user who will be willing to register my phone with their Virgin PAYG account. ( you need to have topped up at least 30 pounds in the past). Virgin will post the unlock code to you in 2-3 days. Email it to me and i will offer a small reward.

I will be willing to offer a £5 reward, paid via paypal. any takers?:roll:

what fone is it ? if nokia it will be free mostly unless bb5
thanks for the reply hustler.

its a lobster 700tv...i've checked the board for unlock codes..none.

my penguin sized brain was not thinking straight when i ordered it. didnt thinkof checking whether is locked and how to unlock it.

£20 for this phone includes £10 credit (orange - so you can use other orange sim too) and £10 from Quidco.

Might be an alternative if someone on Virgin doesn't come forward.

Cheers, Dio :)
