Nokia Lumina 532 locked phone

Hi,

My local supermarket has a Nokia Lumina 532 on sale. It is locked to Telstra. I am already with Telstra pre-paid and would like to stay with Telstra and keep my existing phone number. Am I able to do this if I buy the new locked phone? If so, what do I need to do?

Thanks,

Ctel

Hello Ctel

 

The retail stores generally are not monitoring these messages. South Yarra's  Phone number is 9829 2222

 

I am not a Telstra employee, but unless the situation has changed very, very  recently, any existing Telstra sim can be used in a locked Telstra phone.  I have done it myself twice,  but with Sony Ericsson phones.

 

To be 10000% sure you can speak with Telstra 132200 and say "Unlocking" and you will be directed to that department.

Hope this helps

 

Regards

Hi Ctel,

There is no problem doing that.

Just put your sim card in and it will work, if it is a different size you will have to go into a Telstra store to get the correct size sim.

If you would like the phone sim unlocked you can call the unlocking team on 1300 720 179
