How to unlock a secondhand phone.

Products and Services FAQs

Products & Services FAQs

Hello, I recently purchased a Huawei Psmart secondhand and it is locked to Vodafone, this wasn't an issue when I was in Ireland as they have Vodafone. However, I am now in Morocco and they don't have Vodafone and I need my phone but since I didn't have it for long enough I apparently cannot unlock it?
Is there a way to unlock it as I am not the first owner?

For security reasons only the original owner can unlock the phone. This is to prevent stolen phones from being unlocked. You should contact the seller.

I bought it from a shop and they had no information about the original seller. Thank you though, I'll just have to purchase a different phone.
