How can I tell if my iPhone is under contract to EE?
My mother in law upgraded her iPhone and gave me her old iPhone 5c. She is under a monthly contract with EE so I presumed that the phone she gave me was locked to EE.
My old phone is a Samsung S4 which has a Micro SIM. My wife has an iPhone 6, unlocked, using a BT Nano SIM only contract with BT. My (unlocked) Samsung contract is also with BT. I tried my wife's Nano SIM in the iPhone 5c and it worked okay. This led me to believe that the iPhone 5c was also unlocked and so I obtained a new BT SIM and tried to activate it on the iPhone. The activation supposedly succeeded( assured of this by someone in a call centre) but the iPhone remained dead and I was left with no usable mob phone.
I sent off for another SIM and successfully activated it using my Samsung. I then prised the Nano SIM out and installed it into the iPhone 5c... and it worked!
So here's the question: How do I know if this iPhone is still locked to EE?
