Alcatel Pixi 4 (4) - Unlock recommendations?

5
Found 20th Mar 2017
Hi all. Not very 'up' when it comes to smartphones but got my first ever one on it's way to me to have a play. Unfortunately I need to get it unlocked (apparently) so I thought I'd ask you knowledgeable lot for advice.

I've noticed several people on Ebay offering to unlock for just 99p. Are these viable/genuine and are there any risks involved in giving your phone's info to these sellers? Can they do anything bad with them? Perhaps there is a particular seller you have used yourself and can vouch/recommend them as legitimate?

It's a bummer really but the phone is on O2 and I wanted a TalkTalk Mobile Essential Sim to put in it. I was told they now use O2 as a carrier but apparently not. They are still using Vodaphone but are in the 'process' of moving over to O2. This 'process' has been ongoing for a year or two though, so they tell me. I'm not going to hold my breath...

If you have any insight regarding the above, I'd love to hear. Thanks.

I had an alcatel pixi 4 which I bought from asda last year as a spare phone and was locked to asda mobile. Paid a couple of quid got it unlocked on ebay no problems at all. I've always had phones unlocked via ebay without issues.

I used this person on eBay when I needed my pixi 4 unlocking

It was only 99p and u send him you're imei number and the network the phone is locked too in the message section at the checkout

He will then send u the unlock code 30/45mins later sometimes sooner

Here's the link to it

Thanks again, Luke067. Phone now unlocked. The seller sent me the code within a couple of minutes! Just got to get my head around how to use the phone now...
