Hi there,

I have a small query that I would like to ask.

Basically I was with telecom (who quite frankly - Ripped us off) and I switched providers over to vodafone (who have been good to us)

problem is that I have 2 phones from Telecom (which were well over priced) and now rendered totally useless!!!

My old Telecom Phone is a Sanyo Kantana scp 6600 and I love the usability of this phone.

does anyone know if it is at all possible to convert my phone over to the vodafone network?

thank you

The telecom store will reprogram it for the new person, or guide them thru it on the phone. If you have lost the password for it then using stuff you find on the net will usually stuff it more, whereas telecom are pretty good about unlocking phones when they are proven that you bought it and didnt just pick it up in the street or steel it.
