How do I unlock a phone from Telstra?

Answered

Hi,

 

I recently bought a second-hand Huawei Y560 L-02, and when I went to Huawei to unlock the bootloader, they said they couldn't do it because the phone is locked to Telstra. How do I unlock the phone from Telstra? I've never had any kind of plan or SIM with Telstra.

 

Regards,

Aston

Hi Aston,

There could be a fee to get the mobile unlocked.

Have a read of the below link. It explains how to unlock a mobile phone from Telstra.

I am NOT a Telstra employee and never have been. However, I AM a customer who volunteer's my time in the hope to help someone with their question.
