Well I've just entered the 21st Century and bought a smartphone
I bought the Moto G from Tesco 1) Because it was cheap...£100, and 2) It's allegedly very easy and cheap to unlock, although to be honest I have never unlocked a phone before.
So far I have discovered two things about Tesco mobile internet up here 1) The network coverage is absolutely rubbish!!! No 3G or even 2G at times and 2) When you do get a signal the charges are horrendous...10p per minute if using WAP or 10p per m/b.
So I've done a bit of research and discovered that ASDA use the EE network, which has a good 3G signal up here, and their charges for everything are about half what Tesco are.
So the query goes like this. How do I go about unlocking it AND transferring my number as well?
I assume that I would need to unlock it first but I can't get into my head how to transfer the number. Don't both SIMs need to be in an active phone for the number to be transferred?
I've seen the videos and got the eBay links for a trusted provider of an unlock code, it's just the whole number transfer malarky I can't get my head round
