Hi thanks for using fixya!

when you are checking the IMEI number of your pda or mobile phone; the correct digit is when you use that *#06# and it will display the numbers. It is a 17 digit code.

In you seconde question, what do you mean that you had a 8 attempts to unlock? do you want to unlock it so that you could use it for any network providers?

    for further information, IMEI means International Mobile Equipment Identity. Each GSM and UMTS mobile phones has a unique IMEI number. IMEI numbers either come in a 15 digit or 17 digit sequences of numbers. These numbers can identify a handset. Currently the format of the IMEI is AA-BBBBBB-CCCCCC-D. or as commonly used as well the 17 digit number. Usually, the last 2 extra digit number, that is why it is a 17 digit; it exists as an Identifier.

    hello there!

    May I ask, where did you purchased your pda phone? when you bought it, is it locked to a Network Service Provider?

  • Dennis Jambalos
    Dennis Jambalos May 13, 2009

    If your pda is locked to a network provider, you should contact them, perhaps there is a sort of a contract within like after 1 year or so, you could apply it to unlock the phone. However, if you have bought it from any merchant, i mean, from any shop around, it should be unlocked already.

    By the way, is it brand new? well, if in any case that any sim cards or network provider doesn't work in your phone at all. You should go to a service center or any shops that offers to unlock a phone, from there they can help you further. But, if you are just trying to unlock it because there are some errors internally that is why most of your sim cards does not work on it. You can try to hard reset it, if that is the case, and you can try all over. But it seems like as per to your statements, it is locked to a specific provider? isn't it?

    Please note that, to unlock any phone needs a kind of software and tool to unlock it properly. That is why, the best recommendation I could tell you is to bring your pda phone to a service center to unlock it.

    hello again!

    Unfortunately, there is no legal software that available in the market that could unlock the phone. This kind of software is like a crack that some users that are expert in unlocking kinds of pda phone could do. Some shops or service centers are offering this services. I can see that your pda phone was bought in the USA and from T-mobile, when you bought a phone from this network provider usually it is locked for them. I recommend that you check some service centers that offers unlocking pda phone.

What is an htc aria imei number ?

Hi the IMEI number is the phones identification number, now if the phone works and you can switch it on then on the main screen just type in this star hash 06 hash so on the phone it will look like this
*#06# then when you press the last hash it will display the phones imei number, if the phone dont work then the imei number should be written on a sticker under the battery, the imei number is also located on the sticker on the box, failing that the only other way to get the phones imei number is by taking it to a phone shop and ask them to flash the phones details for you and ask for the imei number.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
