Ask the person to put the sim in that they were using with the phone.
#2
yes will have to wait a week though b4 i see them,would it allow me to see my messages,phonebook etc though it was locked to another network?
[mod]#3
Sounds like the phone could be barred. Are you sure they've not give you a stolen phone?
#4
im sure,it was my sister who gave it to me,actually to cut a long story short she told insurance it was broke so she could get a new one?
#5
if the phone has been barred can i get to use it somehow?
#6
how do i do that and is that what could be the matter with it?

Since it's illegal, and can get you many years in prison, I'm guessing that you won't get told how to do so :whistling:

The phone company/insurance company have blocked the phone from use.

Your lucky that it was barred because had you used it, the imei number would've been shown to your network and it would've possibly ended up in your sister being asked awkward questions.

If the phone is reported broken, and not stolen you could legally sell it on for parts.
