I have an Alcatel U3 3G phone bought from Target. I put in my optus simcard however it requires me to put in a Network Provider code to unlock and start the phone. Any ideas how to get it unlocked??
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
@Shiavni95, can you send us a private message with the handset's IMEI number?
You should be able to find that on the back/rear of the handset.
I can see that we've captured your other details, so the IMEI number is all we'll need.
I've replied back.
We'll chat there 🙂
So how this worked,
The Alcatel phone I purchased was a Telstra provided phone and therefore was locked on their network. @Dan_C was very kind to help me understand this and I have exchanged the phone with an Optus provided network service.
