I want to unlock my ZTE T100

Customer Question

I want to unlock my ZTE T100

Thanks for your question. My name is Richard.
When you say unlock, do you mean you forgot the passcode to unlock the screen? Or so you can use it with another provider?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I want to use the phone with any other provider

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Normally they are not locked to a provider Richard.
What message do you get when you put another SIM card into the phone?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It says No SIM detected, despite putting a sim from another phone into it (the original sim from this phone is now used elsewhere)

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, No Sim Detected is not the message you would get if it was locked.
It would give either network error, phone locked or network locked.
If you put another sim in the phone, does that also give the error?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
I saw another question from you saying it now says it is locked to Telstra. I closed the second question, but with this message you need to call(###) ###-####to have it unlocked from them.
If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
