unlocking pre paid optus phone

jenine

Hi I am completely frustrated in trying to unlock my phone from the optus network and its hard to contact anyone.

I have filled out the form online to get it to unlock and it tells me it is unlocked. I put in another sim from a different carrier and it comes up on my phone that the phone is locked to the network. Can anyone advise me what to do.

Its a alcatel one touch pixie 3.

Hey @jenine - can you please send me a private message with your Optus service number along with your full name + DOB & the IMEI number of the phone? I'll follow this up for you as soon as I can.

 

@sanjeev4every1 - are you able to let me know which phone it is that you're using?

Hi, I'm having real trouble unlocking an Optus phone. I purchased it outright as a phone for my son to play games on, now I am trying to put a sim from another carrier in and it tells me its locked. 

I have used the Optus unlock page and paid the fee, but the code it gave me is 00000000 which does not work!

 

Very frustrated, I have two other services with optus and have never had issues.

 

The phone is a Samsunge Galaxy SM J100Y
