Samsung Young2 compatibility



I was given a Samsung Young2 phone (model SM-G130H) which was previously locked to Optus. I obtained an unlock key, entered it and a message appeared saying the phone was successfully unlocked.


However I cannot get this phone to work on Telstra. I inserted my Sim card which works on Telstra in another phone (also a Samsung but not a smartphone). Message on Young2 screen says "Emergency calls only".  I tried searching for the available mobile providers and got only Optus and Vodaphone, Telstra did not appear.


Is this phone compatible with Telstra ? If it is, how can I get it to work ?


PS, I also did a factory reset on the phone, twice.


regards and thanks,
