Can a bt sim be used in an EE locked phone

 


Hi @JohnH3. There is a money back guarantee so you can try before you buy. If everything works then you can port over your number but only if it works.

Re: Mobile sim

I am buying a new phone from argos which will be locked to EE, and I've heard that because they are on the same network I can simply put  my bt SIM into the new phone and it will be as if it was in my present phone ie, same contract same number.

Re: Mobile sim

Ok. Went to Argos to pick up a Nokia 3 for my wife. I was told I couldn't try her card in it as this would make it a second-hand phone and I would have to buy a pay as you go card for £10. Didn't buy the phone. This morning I went to a friends in the village who has an EE contract and, would you believe, a EE locked Nokia 3!!! Put my wife's bt card in it and the EE icon changed to bt . Made a call to his landline and it rang. Also, It had Wi-Fi calling which it doesn't have when it's in my wifes lgk8 350n which is the main reason for changing the phone. I have now ordered a phone with Amazon so fingers crossed.
