    Just purchased a used 9900 from ebay which should arrive sometime next week. It is locked to Vodaphone (UK). I do not have a Vodaphone SIM - do I need to get one to unlock the phone or can I use the Virgin SIM from my 9790 ?

    Hey logindetails ,

    You can use your virgin sim to unlock it

    just turn the phone on with your virgin simcard in it and it will ask for the unlock code

    You can use Virgin SIM for your 9900. Then you should have code unlock for enter.
    Good luck.

    As others have mentioned, simply using the Virgin SIM card will do the trick.

    However, if you run into any problems, you might then want to order a SIM card from Vodafone (which are free) just to check the phone isn't blocked. But that's only if you run into a problem.

    All the best.

    No - it can be any non-accepted SIM card.

    Hi I've put my Virgin Sim into my blackberry bold (ex-Vodafone) and the phone it and is asking for an unlock code - a network MEP code? Can virgin supply this or do I have to go to a shop on the high street for this? Thanks
