Samsung gte1080i i try and put in my virgin sim and it comes up with network lock please help


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Virgin Mobile phones contain Propriatory software. This means that Virgin mobile SIM cards will only work in Virgin Mobile phones. If your Samsung GTE 1080i was not sold by Virgin Mobile your Virgin mobile SIM card will not work in it.

If your phone was sold by Virgin Mobile, contact Virgin Mobile (in the USA)
at 1-888-322-1122 and request assistance.

How to reach a live person: Press 0 as soon as you hear "Alex", and keep pressing 0 for each request made for more information.

Here is another number you can also try:

Phone: 877-602-4907
How to reach a live person: Believe it or not, this number rings through to a live customer service rep. It sometimes rings quite a few times, but be patient and someone will pick up.

When i insert a virgin sim card in a virgin network phone it does not work!


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Virgin Mobile uses proprietary software in it's phones. As such, (depending on the phone) a SIM card already activated for one Virgin Mobile phone may not work in another (different) Virgin Mobile phone - even if it is the exact make and model.

You may need to contact Virgin Mobile Customer service to request a new phone added to your account - and they may need to provide you with a new SIM card. They'll be able to let you know what you'll need to do depending on which phone you want to use on your account.

Got a nokia 5800 on virgin can it be opened onto voda no *** reply please i will not pay cash 4 a answer i will simply ask another **** 4 free


Hi
not sure if they still do it, but you used to be able to call virgin customer services and say you want to use two different networks (to keep them sweet) they would say that as long as you had topped up or spent £30 of credit on that phones sim card that they would send (in the post) the unlocking instructions along with the code you need. I used to work in a phone shop where we delbt with virgin and we would request this for customers frequently, but it was a couple of years ago. You never know they may still do it?
Only thing that may prevent doing this way with a key in code is that the 5800 is classed as a smart phone and uses a variation of Nokia's Symbian software which may need a cable connection to unlock? Hope it helps?

Unlock Nokia 5800 EM locked into Virgin Mobile (UK)


Hi there.

Firstly, remember that unlocking your phone might void your warranty, if you have one.

That said, the first thing to try is to contact your service provider and ask for an unlock code. Usually, if you've been a customer of theirs for some time, they will provide you with an unlock code and instructions for free. This is, by far, the best way to get your phone unlocked.

Alternatively you could go to this site and buy the unlock code. Select your make / model in the drop-downs an enter the information requested. You'll need your IMEI code for this step. To find this, type *#06# on your phone.

Once you've received the unlock code, enter #pw+<UNLOCK_CODE>+1#

-The letter p appears if you press the button star(*) three times quickly
-The letter w appears if you press the button star(*) four times quickly
-The symbol + appears if you press the button star(*) two times quickly

Once you have finished entering a code that works you should see a message that says "Restriction off". The message "Cannot undo restrictions" means the phone is "hard-locked" and cannot be unlocked by code.

Good luck,

-LL

How do I get a puk code for virgin network Australia


Puleld from Virgin Mobile UK:A PERSONAL UNLOCKING CODE (PUK) WILL GET YOU BACK INTO YOUR PHONE ONCE IT'S LOCKED YOU OUT Locked out? If you've entered your PIN incorrectly 3 times, then unfortunately your phone will be locked.
But hey, it's no problem at all - what you need to get back up and running is a PUK code. That's your phone's Personal Unlocking Code.
How to get your PUK code
Simply visit Your Account and you can pick up your PUK code there.
Need some help with your PUK code?
If you accidentally enter your PUK code 10 times, then you'll need to get a replacement SIM. We can send one out to you - just send us an email or give us a call on 0845 6000 789.

Pulled from Virgin Moble AU:
http://www.virginmobile.com.au/glossary.html


A number code that unlocks your SIM card in case the PIN is incorrectly entered three times. If the PUK is incorrectly entered ten times it permanently disables the SIM card, which will then have to be replaced. Contact us if you need to get your PUK.




I hope this helps!! :)
