Asda Sim, EE handset. Will it work?

I have an ASDA mobile PAYG sim for my son. As I work for Asda I'd like to keep it as they do very good colleague only bundles. For Christmas I want to get him a refurbished iphone 4S. The cheapest one I've found in not unlocked but on the EE network. As Asda mobile uses the EE network I want to know if an Asda mobile sim will work in an EE network locked phone? Anyone know?

Re: Asda Sim, EE handset. Will it work?

It might not be that straight forward though.  When you say the iPhone 4S is locked to EE, do you know if that's actually T-Mobile or Orange?  If it is locked to Orange than that may cause issues for you.

 

No idea if an Asda SIM card will work in an Orange locked handset?  Asda mobile switched to the EE network after the T-Mobile/Orange merger and the iPhone 4S was launched before the same merger so not sure it would work in an older Orange only handset?  Newer EE handsets will now accept either Orange or T-Mobile SIM cards, but older ones don't.

I wondered whether your son has had any problems when texting the 2732 number to check his balance?  My daughhter has an asda sim which we have put in an ee phone, but she gets charged for sending a balance check text to 2732. However when we put her sim in another phone, it works perfectly and gives her a different balance!
