Help

I have the opportunity to buy a brand new, never used still in unopened box Motorola e6 EE phone at a very good price. I don't know what contract is on sim card. If I bought this phone could I replace Sim card with my EE PAYG Sim card without any problem?

@Arthur6   Yes as it’s a 2nd hand device.   The sim for the device is not in your name so that has no effect on you.   But be warned the original owner could report it lost or stolen and so will be blacklisted the blacklist will not be removed for you as the device is not in your name.

If you're lucky. As that phone is at most 6 months old it's more likely to be the result of an insurance fraud whereby it has been reported as lost to EE & then sold on at 6 months. EE will then have blacklisted it & will only discuss it with the original owner.
