You need to free the network from the phone (unlock it) you can download xss++ for about 3 dollars and do yours and your mates providing you have the USB cable that came with the phone. Failing that you would have to go to a back street phone repair shop where they will charge you a small fortune

Nokia 5800 xpressmusic. i just recived this new phone from a friend because he bought a new phone. i put my sim-card in it it asks me for my simcard code. it accepts the simcard code but than it says...

I'm assuming your both on the same network? If your both tmobile customers or AT&T it should work without problems.

If not. The phone needs to be unlocked. to be used with another sim card from a different company.
And to do that. Your friend can call his carrier he bought the phone from, request an unlock code, then unlock it that way, and you'll be able to use it just fine.

Only if your on either Tmobile or AT&T. No other sim cards will work.
