Locked to Tesco Mobile?

Get this for just £39.97 when you spend over £30 instore @ tesco.

Yes its locked to tesco mobile.

some phones with the tesco network come unlocked. Otherwise if yous spend £15 on topup they will unlock it for free.

So when i last bought a tesco phone, i ported my old number from orange to the tesco network. Topped up with £15 and used it. I suppose you could then port it again to the netwoek you want

I actually got the phone through virgin as i rang them up and they matched the price(they actually charged me £49.99 + delivery).Good price from tesco though.

Just ask, tell a member of staff you have seen the offer in another store, its a nationwide offer.

i've heard that "locked to tesco" phones also work with o2 simcards?

Tesco use the o2 network so they the phones work with o2 as well.

thanks for confirming that ..... shame its now out of stock

]Not great reviews so maybe thats why Tesco are doing them so cheap.

Whilst they use the same network, Tesco is a virtual network operator - when I used my O2 SIM it didn't work in my phones and vice versa - may now be different, as no longer with O2.

But, Tesco have a generous unlocking scheme, meaning that little top-up has to be added to get their free unlocking service.

I've never tried the O2\tesco sim thing but I know with virgin who use the T-Mobile network if you get a T-Mobile phone you can use either sim card in the phone BUT if you get a Virgin mobile you cannot use a T-mobile sim in it.

Slightly off topic but may answer the query about sim\network.

Thanks

I got this phone on a new contract with vodafone. it was so terrible, I would have been more happy using a banana.


constant freezing, very slow reaction times and texting lag.. you couldnt text at a fast rate as it wouldnt keep up, and then put in the wrong characters. nightmare!

good deal though if you like door wedges that can make the odd phone call..


(i've had 2 lg phones are software issues have always been apparent. my mates have had different ones and theyve had a lot of issues with them. I will say one thing. cosmetically LG can design a very sexy phone, but their software capabilities and reliabilities is a let down :(.)

Tesco sim worked in my o2 phone.

This is true. You can go down the chain and use a Tesco SIM in an O2 locked phone but you can't go up the chain and use an O2 SIM in a Tesco locked phone.

The same is true of T-Mobile and Virgin. Virgin SIM in T-Mobile locked phone is OK. T-Mobile SIM in Virgin locked phone, not OK.

Anyone know exactly how you get your tesco phone unlocked after buying the top-up from them ?
