Question about Nokia 1600 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Sim locked phone

I have two phones that are provided through T-mobile. My sim works only with one phone now. I use both phones for instead of hauling my charger with when gone for more than 12 hours. Instead of buying a second battery I use my old phone. My sim chip (with all my contacts saved) now only works in my old phone. I need a sim unlock code for a nokia 1600. and might as well get one for my razor. Both T-mobile. Charger at work, phone at home!. and my fully charged phone is useless.

If both phones are provided by T-Mobile, I would suggest contacting them to get it unlocked.

If the sim came with the phone that is an American phone you need a sim for an African mobile phone network in your country or you need to contact the American mobile phone network provider to get the unlock code. The phone may be locked onto a particular USA mobile phone radio network and you would need to know what network it is locked to. There are web sites that offer to get the unlock code on the internet for mobiles locked on a particular mobile network but I have not had experience using them and do not know how successful they are to try and unlock a mobile from a particular mobile network. You will find this out when you change the sim card in the phone for a local African mobile phone provider in Africa
see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC0KKX-2bn8

with an USA sim card and USA mobile network provider you will pay lots of money in Roaming charges which you would wish to avoid by using a local African mobile provider.
A local provider may be able to help you unlock the phone from the particular mobile network if it is locked on a USA mobile network.

There must be a mobile network provider in Africa that can work on your mobile phone type for it to work with that mobile network providers correct sim card.

Another source of problem could be if the phone has been reported as stolen the IMEI may not work due to being blacklisted and disabled.

How to unlock my sim card?


A "Subsidy Unlock Code" is a code that is unique to your phone.
The code is assigned by the original service provider the phone was manufactured for so that it cannot be taken to another carrier for activation without their permission.

Most times you will receive the message " Enter Special Code " when you insert a SIM card from a diferent carrier. Motorola cannot provide subsidy unlock codes. You will need to contact the original service provider for further assistance.

I currently have a Vodafone SIM but am switching networks. When I put the new SIM in, it doesn't work. I have been told I need to put a PUK code somewhere, but Vodafone isn't telling me anything on where...


The Vodafone SIM card will only work on the Vodafone mobile network. If you want to use different mobile provider then you need to purchase a new SIM card from that mobile provider.
If you intend to use your old mobile phone that was connected to Vodafone, then if this mobile phone is locked to Vodafone, then the new SIM card from a different mobile provider will not work in the old mobile phone unless it has been unlocked to allow you to use any SIM card/mobile provider.
If you need to unlock this mobile, then please leave me a comment so I can provide you with further information.

Looking to unlock my phone


If you want to unlock the phone to be free to all providers, go to a local phone shop and have the job done for $10 or so.

If instead you have the phone locked with PUK lock code, then call the Sim card provider or use a replacement SIM.
Call sim card provider means that you need to call the phone company that branded the sim card inside the mobile (eg Tmobile, Orange AT&T etc.)

I need a subsidy code for a Motorola V3 razr


which one is locked? the phone or your sim?

your friend's mobile phone might be sim-locked into a particular network only. T-mobile phones uses only sims that are T-mobile. If you inserted an ATT sim into a T-mobile phone, it is expected to react that way. That is also why, ATT told you to call T Mobile because it was not the responsibility of ATT if their sim won't work into a T-mobile phone (if that was really the case).

that was just a hint. the initial remedy would be is, insert a T-mobile sim into the T-mobile phone first and also confirm to your friend if it was a sim-locked phone.

subsidy codes are exclusively from the company. it's very, very, very (nth power) seldom that one can be provided online (w/c is safe and reliable). so please hope that either my suggestion would work or they will still provide the subsidy code because the case might be beyond the warranty requirements.
