Some of you will remember this from the Christmas staff offer that got posted before Christmas when it was only £5.

It now seems to be on general release on their website. These are locked to Asda Mobile & Vodafone.

Not a great phone but a camera phone for under a Tenner, you can't really complain.

Probably stupid question ............ but post says locked to Asda mobile and Vodafone. I am just looking for a cheapo phone to take on holiday.

Anyone know - if I just put my contract or PAYG Vodafone SIM card in there - will it work ??

Thanks in advance !

Be careful - if its like Virgiin and T-mobile

You can put a Virgin Sim into a T-mobile locked handset, but not the other way around

so it is possible but not guaranteed that a vodafone sim will work in this

I do know that a talkmobile sim works in vodafone locked handset so it looks like virtual network sims work in the real network they are one but not necessarily the other way around

hope this makes sense

in a word - NO

I'm sure it can be unlocked, I'm just not sure how easy it would be.

I would say its not easily unlocked

Reasons:-

I normally check the professional unlockers on ebay - are they offering unlocking on a particular phone - in this case no.

Are there any phones on ebay that are unlocked - in this case all OT-C550 are locked to Asda

Also part of the reason that it is cheap is that it is not easily unlocked therefore you get a cheap phone but you are tied to the Asda network

Hi I have a voda sim?

Do you know what networks I can use it on apart from Voda.
#12
If you want a sim free phone and a cheap one try carphone warehouse, Got a few cheap phones from them which you buy for a network like o2 and when you get the phone home you can put in any sim card in it you wish but carphone do not tell you this . I found out from one of there saleman back few years ago. I will say did get a phone from carphone in Dec last year and still sim free.

None aprt from Vodefone

You can use your sim in a handset locked to vodafone or an unlocked handset

AFAIK the follwing virtual networks use the vodafone backbone

BT mobile
Asda
Talkmobile

but their hansets may well be locked o that network only

HI

Just tried to buy this phone from asda mobile and the customer service agent said that this particular phone had been sold out since november 2007 and offered me an alternative at £5 extra charge,
be carefull
#15
dot mobile also use vodafone.
AFIK Virgin are the only ones with there own ability to lock handsets, all other MVNO do not.

Nah mate wont work on Vodafone ireland as they just share same brand name but different sim lock, its a bit like o2 uk and o2 ireland, you need to unlock an o2 uk phone to use o2 ireland and likewise other way round

Thanka for the advice on the voda sim.
#21
ref: unlocking

its a straight forward unlock, the problem is it usually costs more than the phone is worth/amount you paid for the phone.
