Re: Galaxy Ace sim unlock pin

Are you saying you need to unlock the phone to use on a different network? If so and its a PAYG phone you can't do it for 12 months (not through O2 anyways).

You may have to return the phone if it's njot over the 7 days cooling off period. As MI5 says, O2 won't unlock a P&G phone for 12 months.
