Will my phone stop working at the end of my contract?

I thought the phone was yours to keep after the contract was up, just got this from t-mobile:

"If you want to carry on using the same phone, we'll also need to give you a subsidy PIN.

We can give you this for a fee of £15 inc VAT, but you will have to check with your new network if your phone will still work."

I didn't think they could charge you if you want to carry on using the phone?

Only problem is that I sold the phone, don't want an angry buyer with a blocked phone!

Nope, already got pac codes to transfer number, it's for the phone.

Your phone should be fine as contract phones are usually unlocked anyway, if not it may need unlocking if you transfer to a new network provider.

[COLOR="Red"]The subsidy pin is only needed if you want to "unlock" the phone to another network.[/COLOR]

[COLOR="Red"]There is no charge if its still on same network and have no need to unlock it[/COLOR]

Only problem is that I sold the phone, don't want an angry buyer with a blocked phone!
[COLOR="Red"]It wont be blocked but it may be locked to your current network.[/COLOR]

Thanks, I've realised now that they mean unlocking code. What they've said is quite misleading, there is no need to pay them £15 seeing as the phone was unlocked anyway. Even if it wasn't I wouldn't have to pay them £15, I could unlock it myself or use it on t-mobile payg.

Wonder how many people get conned into giving them £15 when they don't need to?
