Nokia 3110 Secrets:

*#06# for checking the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) Information you get from the IMEI:

XXXXXX XX XXXXXX X

TAC FAC SNR SP

TAC = Type approval code

FAC = Final assembly code

SNR = Serial number

SP = Spare

*#7780# restores Factory Settings..(Memory, language, counters not included)

*#3110# for checking the phone’s software (SW) – called firmware revision information.

#746025625# [*#sim0clock#]

Checks if the sim clock can be stopped. Sim clock stop is a kind of stand-by mode which will save battery time. This code

doesn’t work with software version 4.59.

*#92702689# [*#war0anty#]

Press the following warranty code:

6232 (OK) : Displays the Month and Year of Manufacture (0997)

7332 (OK) : Displays the date of the last repairment – if found (’DATE NOT SAVED’…)

7832 (OK) : Displays (if found) the date where the phone was purchased (’DATE NOT SAVED’…)

9268 (OK) : Displays Serial Number

37832 (OK) : Set the Purchasing Date MMYY (Warning: You can only do this once – So be careful …)

87267 (OK) : Transfers ALL phone numbers, pictures, sounds from one phone to another

Service Provider Lock:

The service provider (SP) lock is used to lock the cell phone to the SP’s SIM card. Once the cell phone is locked to a

specific operator, if one inserts a SIM card from a different operator the phone will refuse to accept it! The cell phone

will however accept another SIM card from the same operator.

All Nokia phones (2110 and newer) have four different SIM locks which can be used to lock the phone for upto 4 different

providers. But most phones with restriction only have one lock activated. ( lock 1)

The main code used in Nokia phones is:

#pw+(master code)+Y#

This code is able to check, activate or remove Sim card restriction (SP-lock).

Use the * key to get the p, + and w chars.

‘Y’ has to be 1,2,3 or 4 – depending of what lock you what to deal with.

#pw+1234567890+1# for Provider-Lock status

#pw+1234567890+2# for Network-Lock status

#pw+1234567890+3# for Country-Lock status

#pw+1234567890+4# for SimCard-Lock status

# = DOUBLE-CROSS

W = PRESS “*” THREE TIMES

P = PRESS “*” FOUR TIMES

+ = PRESS “*” TWO TIMES

MASTERCODE = 1234567890

Y = NUMBER 1 TO 4

(master code) is a 10 digit code, based on the phones IMEI number.

(I can NOT give you the master code – SO DON’T ASK ME FOR IT !!!!!!!)

Eg. To remove restriction on lock 1 type following code:

#pw+(master code)+1#

If you just want to check your phone use 10 random numbers Eg. 1234567890 as the (master code)

eg. To check if phone if restricted on lock 1 type the following code:

#pw+1234567890+1#

Please NOTE that these codes could be used with care! A user told me that it’s only possible to type in about 3 different

codes on each lock! Then something bad will happen ..therefore be careful!

Bypass the SP lock:

With a Nokia 16xx/21xx/31xx/51xx/81xx that are SIMlocked to one privider you can bypass the SP lock like this:

1: Insert sim card of diferent provider.

2: Turn on the phone and press the UP VOLUME key for 3 sec. then release it and the phone says PIN CODE?

3: Press the “C” key.

4: Then Press * and wait until it desapear and apear again, then press * one more time and 04*PIN*PIN*PIN#

The phone now says: PIN CODE CHANGED (or ACCEPTED) and the SIM card is accepted until you restart the phone again. NOTE: On

version 5.04 Nokia has removed this option !

Fast silent mode:

In the newer versions (v.7.11 or higher) a quick silent mode can by entered. Press Menu then #.

The 54# Tip:

Type 1#, 2#……..54# on the keypad (when you’re not in the menu) to get the phone number used for with this key when speed

dialing.

Enhanced Full Rate will give you much better sound quality when you enable it. The new Enhanced Full Rate CODEC adopted by

GSM uses the ASELP (AlgebraicCode Excitation Linear Prediction) compression technology. This technology allows for much great

voice quality in the same number of bits as the older Full Rate CODEC. The older technology was called LPC-RPE (Linear

Prediction Coding with Regular Pulse Excitation). Both operate at 13 kilobits.(but you take up more space on the network, so

they can charge you more) – Talk-time is reduced with about 5%

My software ( sibelius ) does not recognise my soundcard.


Sibelius 5 has lots of issues like this. Drop me a line to kw7157@yahoo.co.uk with details of which soundcard and revision, operating system and revision level and PC mfr & model you are using as the remedy is probably too large to fit on this site.
