Default Free Unlock Codes for Nokia Phones

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 .

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

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO WAY TO UNLOCK THE NOKIA 6630+6680+7710+9500+9300+6620 , 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 07/10/05 )


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 ##############

I unlocked a phone before I knew this advice, using the ...1#. Is there any further advantage to be gained by trying it with the ...7#?

code 7 removes all the locks, but code 1 may unlock it...which in your case it did

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

If it is PIN not security code then it it is the default one with the sim card...normall in the welcome pack

default security code is 12345 normall or 00000

PLEASE be kind, Browntoa!!!! I have read the threads (which are very very helpful) so I am very aware that unlocking the Nokia 6630 ain't easy... and has levels of complexity to it. Question is - is there any light at the end of the tunnel regarding this? Is it likely to be possible, and if so, will it be in months or years???

I am aware that unlocking the Nokia 6630 is virtually impossible so thank you for the very helpful thread on this Browntoa. Question is (and sorry to ask) is it ever likely to be cracked and if so, would you predict months or years??? Mine is on "3" and the deal is fabulous for what I use it for (virtually free) but I would love to use it overseas with a local SIM. Thanks in advance.

no codes can be guarenteed to work as nokia can change firmware and settings at any time.
if you want a guarenteed working code you should contact your service provider and pay for it, not complain about people who do there best for free

months not years

i suspect it will take a while before even a paid for option appears, there is non-nokia equipment that can repair the software now but even this cannot unlock the phones..I would think maybe 6 months to a year !!

snap......posted at the same time !!

I have tried 4 times and all 3 methods mentioned in the original post. It has been a "code error" every time. I have a nokia 6230 (not 6230i). Any thoughts why it isn't working. Is it possible that its unlocked already??

Wow, how things have changed, a good few years back I bought all the cables and software for unlocking nokia's (DCT3) and I remember the bad old days of having to dismantle 3210's, shorting pins on the eprom chip while powering up the phone and running the unlock software, even not so long ago the Nokia 8310's were a nightmare to unlock before newer software became available, Now DCT3 & 4 phones can mostly be unlocked with codes....If I remember correctly it took over 18 months for a system to unlock DCT3 phones by code to become available, so a little wait for the options on the 6630 to become available shouldn't harm anyone

@Tuesnightspecial - Possible, put a sims in from another network....if it gets a signal, it's never been locked
