Question about Motorola Mobility ic502 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone won't read sim other than one original.........?

My brother passed away a little over a month ago. I was given his beloved cellphone which is loaded with pictures and ringtones. I contacted sprintel and they wont let me access the account, but say the phone should work with my BOOST MOBILE UNLIMITED SIM CHIP. However when ever I install the sim the phone reads incorrect sim, information does not match stored information. I am actually down grading from my i880. But this phone has major sentimental value to me. Is there anyone who can help. I don't know how to "use unlock codes" and all that. Don't even know the unlock code for the phone. Or even if that is what I have to do. There are locks next to his old number and his walkie talkie numbers, and the phone will not let me access them to enter my phone numbers and walkie talkie number from my chip. Help...............

Track lost phone

well if you have lost your cellphone already, this website may help a little:, I think you have to first report it......maybe it won't help without reporting it stolen. can also try this website to download helpful softwares & try to work it out by yourself:
Or... I've been using this software & working fine so far, it has so many great features like tracking/lock on sim change/msg on sim change etc, read more on their website:

Another one is:
Im sure this will definitely help your problem.
but I have doubt if it works with "After Stolen" cases.

Ive been given a nokia 5200 phone from my brother who has moved away from ireland and i cannot contact him for another month. the phone has a vodaphone sim and i have no codes at all for it i want to...

If your phone is asking you to enter pin or puk code, you need not to contact your brother, rather you better contact the service provider's customer care, they will ask you to give them some info about the sim card registration (on whose name, address etc which i think you know) and will give you the code to reset your phone instantly while you are on the line so be ready to provide them the sim card no. and other info. If the problem is with the sim card lock ("Sim Lock, enter code"), you can manually give a try using this code *#7370# or *#7780# to do this, remove the sim card, memory card, but keep in mind that everything in your phone will be deleted, so copy or not down important files/contacts.
How's it? still the same? So sad but one last chance biut 100% success ratre. Now your last option to get it back so that you can use with another sim card is to get it unlocked using unlock software/flashing software at a mobile repairing shop. good luck

Phone restricted phone

phone restriccted on Nokia phones means that it is wanting a subsidy unlock. This can sometimes happen with the original carriers SIM due to a software glitch. Just remove the battery while the phone is truned on. If the error does not go away, contact your carrier or Nokia for warranty replacement
