    Free Unlock Codes for Nokia Phones 11th Jun 05 at 8:37 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 .

    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.

    ***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 ##############
