Need an unlock code for Galaxy Pocket

Found 1st Aug 2014
The little 'en has a Galaxy Pocket, purchased from Tesco, and I believe it is locked to EE on PAYG.
I want to put a Virgin sim in it. I presume I will need an unlock code for it, so has anyone any ideas on how/where to do this? I don't want to pay a fortune as the phone only costs peanuts, so if it's too much, it really wouldn't be worthwhile.
Thanks in advance.

Stick the sim card and see what happends, you really need to know what network the phone is locked to, you normally get the network logo show up on start up, my guess you are looking at around £10\15 for the unlock code.

As I said, the phone is locked to EE, and I want to use it on Virgin.
£1015 for an unlock code may be a little too much...

I've tried my O2 sim in it and it asks for an unlock code.

All the EE phones I have owned also work with Virgin! Maybe try a Virgin SIM first

As Virgin Mobile uses the EE network, there's a good chance the Galaxy Pocket will accept the sim.
O2 however doesn't which is why it will have wanted an unlock code.
My EE locked iPhones have taken Virgin Mobile sims no probs and my dads VM locked phone takes EE sims.

Sounds like a plan, didn't realise they use the same network.

Thanks for that
