HI

A restriction code is numeric code (password) that prevents a user from accessing certain technical settings of a phone. It is specifically designed to prevent a phone from being reprogrammed to work with a different carrier (service provider).

This is what is usually meant when a phone is referred to as "locked". There are also "unlocked" phones that can be reprogrammed to work with a different carrier.

The reason for this system is the way phones are often sold. Many phones are sold below cost, (at a loss to the carrier,) with the expectation that the money will be recouped in the cost of the monthly service plan. The up-front loss that is later recouped is called a Subsidy.

For this to work financially for the carrier, the user must not buy the phone and then use it with a different carrier. The MSL makes that nearly impossible.

Unlocked phones are ususally much more expensive than locked phones, because there is no subsidy to offset the cost.

You should ask the operator for the restriction code

To unlock my nokia phone and get restiction code


Why are you asking other people for your restriction code? Only you can know this answer. If you forgot your code, you need to have the phone de-memorized and this will cause you to lose all memory of any stored info; you will also have to proove you are the owner of the phone. You will need to go to a phone center that services your carrier.

Phone restiction code


resriction codes are best obtained from the original carrier. There are websites that cn get you an unlock code but they may cost $$. Be careful if you obtain a code from anyone besides the original carrier. If you enter the wrong unlock code too many times your phone will be permanently locked to the original carrier.
