Sounds like a cheaper phone. Huawei or ZTE/Telstra Brand?Hey Nashy Kimlo or anyone tech savvy that knows. I’ve just ported my dad’s number from Telstra Prepaid to ALDI and that has successfully gone through, however I’ve just found out that the stupid Galaxy J2 Pro is network locked to Telstra.
I just rang Telstra to unlock over the phone, paid the $25 and provided the receipt number to the offshore bloke at the other end. He was unable to get an unlock code and had to “escalate” to another team. He now reckons this could take 7-10 days... fuckers!
Meanwhile, because the number has now been ported to ALDI, he doesn’t have a working mobile phone at all for up to 10 days. This doesn’t seem right to me. Any advice?
I've heard a lot of the cheap china stuff, T don't have it on file, so they need to request it from the manufacturer.
The lesson is, every prepaid phone will be locked. No matter the provider.
Edit: Can't read. Cheap phone though, so I'm not overly surprised.
