what is network code for samsung a10

Answered

what is network code for Telstra pre-paid samsung a10?

 

I am putting in a new Belong (a division of Telstra using the telstra network) Sim that I just had my number ported too and it now asks me for a network code (3 tries remaining).

Where is this number found and why is it asking for it?

 

cheers

Even though Belong uses the Telstra mobile network you will still need to unlock the phone and need to buy an unlock code from Telstra. See link below for instructions.

thankyou, haha,

 

Belong is a division of Telstra, so I just paid $80 to Telstra to unlock a phone to use it with the Belong a division of the same company.

 

Have to make the money to pay the Telstra CEO his $5 million I suppose. I admit I feel scammed. Maybe a case for ASIC here.

 

cheers

Its a common practice and not illegal. The seperate divisions of a company are seperate companies with their own ACN, a good example is Woolworths and big W, Woolworths won't honor a special at big W despite having the same parent company.  The ACCC would laugh at you

Did you obtain the phone on a Telstra contract or Pre Paid?

It's probably locked to Telstra especially if  pre paid?

A "Like" is always appreciated. If my advice is a solution, please mark it. I'm not a Telstra employee.

@Hunter-IT is correct and was just responding to your statement about complaining to the competition regulator (even  though you named the Financial Services & Corporate Regulator in your statement). The ACCC wouldn't even consider your complaint.

 

But yes, you need to get the handset network unlocked before you can use the SIM of another provider (note: provider and network are two totally different things).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

I just presented facts i apologise if the facts didn't meet your expectations but unfortunately I am powerless to change Australian corporate regulations to suit you wants.
