ok, thats what I needed, the full message, thank you

It is referring to the previous provider the phone was linked to as the phone is still locked to this.

What was the original provider this phone came with? eg: 02, Vodafone ect.

The previous provider was ee (orange)
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

ok, you will need to call them on 7953 966250

Call them, explain you need the unlock code and as long as there are no outstanding debts on the contract, then they can then provide this to you.

Let me know how you go please
