Re: Sim unlock

You can use your SIM in another phone if (a) the other phone is unlocked for use on any network and (b) the SIM is the right size (standard/mini, micro or nano).

If you insert it into another phone and it prompts for a SIM PIN to unlock the SIM then you just enter the SIM PIN (PIN1) or PUK if necessary:

 

I forgot my PIN... What now?

 

If the phone says something like "invalid SIM" or "Enter NAC/network unlock code" etc. then the phone is most likely locked to another network and needs to be unlocked.

 

Hope this helps.
