Asda uses Vodafone network, and my guess is their phones are locked so an Asda sim will work in a phone locked to Vodafone but not vice versa.
A Tesco sim will work in a phone locked to O2 but not vice versa.
A Virgin sim will work in phone locked to T-Mobile but not vice versa.
But if your mobile is unlocked you can use any network except 3.

Hi lisa21, Dickieburd is correct. The Asda SIM will work in a Vodafone handset, but a Vodafone SIM will not work in an Asda handset.

Kind regards,


Vodafone UK
