i'm thinking of transferring the innards of one samsung galaxy A50 (network: 02) to another samsung galaxy A50 (network: Vodafone). Will the result be a samsung galaxy A50 (network: O2)?

usually if its locked to a network it might be a waste of time. if you've had the phone for longer than a month on pay g or contract ended get it unlocked by them

are you 100% certain they are both network locked? the result should be what you want but it's a rather drastic way of doing it. try an O2 SIM in the Vodafone one first

How does the netwoek lock the phone? Is it through the motherboard or something else? Like if I have apps on one fone will they transfer over with the motherboard or the charger board?

Thanks for the prompt reply by the way

the apps are stored by default to phone and not all apps support sd card. if you transfer the whole motherboard its more than likely going to stay locked.

As Bamy said probably easiest route first is to ask your network(s) for an unlock code

Can you explain what you are trying to achieve as I don't understand how things will be any different?

guessing the original has a damaged screen so they want to use the good bits in another phone locked to a different network. It would be far simpler to get it unlocked though
