    Free Unlock codes for Nokia Phones 2 (U.K. phones Only)

    Free Unlock codes for Nokia Phones 2 (U.K. phones Only) 22nd Oct 05 at 8:50 AM
    We are starting a new thread as the old one was getting a bit long to read.

    There are sites where you can do this for free online if you are happy to do it that way

    http://unlock.nokiafree.org/

    http://www.trycktill.com/eng/unlock_swe.asp ( just click on the English flag
    to get the site in english )

    download a free standalone software version, you pick the model of phone and it sets it up for you .( beware though, there are some models with multiple settings now that this calc cannot cope with)

    http://www.download.com/NokiaFREE-u...j=dl&!!!!!button

    there is a newer version just released (28/12/05) which is available here

    http://nokiafree.org/forums/t78427/h/s.html

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO WAY TO UNLOCK THE NOKIA 6630+6680+7710+9500+9300+6620+N70+N90, the only way to get it unlocked is to pay the Network ! . Any site that claims to unlock these is lying !! . The only equipment available at this time repairs the software on the phone, it cannot unlock it ( info still correct 19/02/06 )


    Your IMEI number is obtained by entering *#06# into the phone

    You need to enter the Network that the phone is locked to not the one you wish to use.

    As a rule the code ending in +7# is the one to use in the U.K. if that one does not work then try the one ending +1#

    You only get 5 attempts to unlock by code so if you get stuck please ask for help !! (it's not the end of the world if you use up your 5 tries, the phone will still work and can be unlocked by a shop/market or boot stallholder with the correct equipment for about 10)

    if you feel unsure about getting the correct code then please feel free to send a private message to either myself or user Drahcir (just click on our names on the left of our posts to get the drop down menu with that option.

    Unlock Instructions:

    1. Only try the supplied code once

    2. Take out the SIM card from the phone.(unless it is a Nokia 6230i, you need to put a sim card from another Network in that one before you enter the code...Drahcir reminds me !!)

    3.Type in the generated code in the phone



    (E.g) #pw+123456789101112+1#

    the phone will then normally reboot itself and come back on at which point it is unlocked. Try with a simcard from another network and it should accept it.

    You may be asked for the security code which is 12345 (or sometimes 00000) uless you changed it or "PIN code" if the sim card itself has a security code(normally a 4 digit code supplied with the sim card) .If you enter the wrong Sim PIN 10 times you will be asked for a PUK code which you need to get from the Network.

    IF you cannot remember your security code this can be reset by a shop/market or boot stallholder with the correct equipment for about 5 to 10


    Further Informational Instruction:


    1. To show p in the phones display - just press * three times within two seconds.

    2. To show w in the phones display - just press * four times within two seconds.

    3. To show + in the phones display - just press * twice within two seconds.

    For articles on unlocking and links to various bits of free software then go towww.unlockme.co.uk



    ***Edit by Board Guide, there is a closed thread here regarding the unlocking of other manufacturers' phones***

    ##### PLEASE DO NOT POST REQUESTS TO UNLOCK OTHER MAKES OF MOBILES IN THIS THREAD...IF IT IS NOT LISTED IN THE THREAD ABOVE THEN YOUR PHONE NEEDS TO BE UNLOCKED IN A SHOP BY CABLE AND SERVICE EQUIPMENT FOR ABOUT 10 ##############

    Nokia 6101 on o2
    Hiya guys,

    I've just got my 6101 from the o2 student site with a lovely dab radio, but don't want to actually use the phone on o2, so hopefully someone on here can give me a hand.

    The IMEI code is 356630009527908 and it is the rm-76 type (no idea if this makes a difference!)

    Also, could someone explain if you need a different sim card in to make the code work or whether you just type it in when there's no sim in it like i did with my old nokia.

    Thanks

    Oh dear. I'm afraid it says phone restriction on when I enter the code. Any other suggestions?

    thanks again for your help

    are you sure it says "phone restriction on" and not "off" as it usually says "code error" or "cannot undo restriction" if it wrong or run out of tries.
    did you use a sim other than 02 to enter the code?
    otherwise you can try this one

    Still no luck I'm afraid. Just says phone restriction on, and then sometimes after that phone restricted. When I put the o2 card in it still works fine so it's obviously not totally locked up.

    I'm confused! lol

    thanks again for your efforts!
