    the only place i could find to type the code was on the dial pad. was meant to press ok but there was no ok. its a ZTE blade q mini

    Found this on the toob

    ZTE Blade Q Unlocking Instructions

    1. Power on the phone with a non accepted sim card
    2. Enter the pin code of your sim card, if your phone ask for it
    3. Now your phone will ask you to enter unlock code
    4. Enter the unlock code and press OK
    5. Your ZTE Blade Q is unlocked.

    are you 100% sure you sent the correct IMEI number to the seller?

    watch the video from 1:17 thats what you should see/get

    but make sure you are not useing your virgin sim card in the phone when you try.you need to have the "network locked" message for it to work...if you have the virgin sim in the networks not gonna be locked is it because its open to virgin !!!
