Bought my wife an Optus prepaid Nokia 6060.
She was already on Optus postpaid so we just used the old SIM.
The phone is locked to Optus for 6 months from activiation date or $80
We're currently on Optus GSM postpaid, she's on Usage Only and I'm on Your
Saver Plus (the former has $0 minimum and the latter $9 minimum).
We are happy with her Usage Only plan but I don't use the $9 minimum so I
thought I'd go onto Optus Prepaid for 6 months (which would cost $30) to
get the phone unlocked and then reevaluate (possibly go to Isim then).
Sales droid at Optus World said I can't use the included $5 SIM card as I
am already with Optus. I need to switch my existing SIM to prepaid by
calling Optus and activate the included prepaid SIM separately (with a new
number) to get the phone unlocked.
There is a flyer with the phone that says if you are already an Optus Pre-
paid customer, you can register your new handset and get $15 credit.
Doesn't mention how this fits in with unlocking. Does anyone know?
I don't mind switching to Optus prepaid but it seems dumb that I can't use
my existing number. I can't see why they'd care whether it was the actual
Nokia 6060 that was used on prepaid for 6 months or $80.
Is there anyway I can get my phone onto prepaid so as to pass the test to
allow unlocking the 6060?
