With working sim in phone, go to keypad and enter *2767*3855# and wait, this will fully reset phone so ensure you back up anything on it first, during repowering up remove battery and insert sim from other network then turn back on, phone should now be sim lock free. As always this is at your own risk.This will likely work with other Samsung phones

I bought nokia 6303 in a second hand shop,but when i get home and wanted to put a sim card it says phone restricted,please help what to do.

I guess your phone is locked to particular Network.That's why it's display "phone restricted" error.To solve this problem you need to get it unlocked your phone.You can unlock your phone from Network lock using unlock code(Restriction code).You can get the restriction code for your Nokia 6303 phone from any third party online vendors like here you need to specify your country, Network name to which it is locked, IMEI number of your phone. Then they deliver unlock code to you through mail with unlocking instructions. Using this you can unlock your phone from Network lock easily.

If phone says incorect simcard for sony ericsson

Hi it means the sim card you are using is not the same type the phone is locked to say your trying a orange network sim but the phone may be locked to vodafone.

if the sim card worked in the phone before then i would take the sim card out and give the contacts are rub then put it back in if it still dont work then this would suggest the sim card reader needs replacing, to get this done it will need taking to a phone shop.

if you are unsure what network the phone is locked to then you can take it into any phone shop and they will tell you for free what network its locked to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My husband has got me a phone of ebay and it is telling me to enter network unlock code but i dont have one

HI what this mean is that the phone is locked to a different network to the sim card that your using.

say your trying to use an orange network sim card but the phone is locked to vodafone then it will give you the message your getting.

so now you have 2 options you could try another network or get the phone unlocked at your nearest phone shop, if you get it unlocked you can use any network you like but until you get it unlocked it will only accept the network it is locked to and without knowing that you could struggle to find out what network its locked to as their are so many networks.

have a look on the case of the phone and if it dont tell you the network then take the phone into any phone shop and they will be able to tell you for free what network the phone is locked to and they can also provide you with a correct sim card.

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

Can't phone or text

You haven't given any details of the old and new SIM cards, but what you describe is typical of either a phone which is locked to an individual network, with a SIM of the "wrong" network inserted, or an inactive SIM card which has not yet been enabled by your network.

To cure the first fault, either revert to a SIM from the original network provider or pay to get the phone unlocked (you can either pay the network supplier it's currently locked to or you can use a phone unlocking shop. Sometimes the network option is cheaper and you certainly don't risk having your phone cloned and personal data copied by a dishonest shop proprietor).

The second fault may occur if you need to replace one SIM with another on the same network and same number. If that's the case, then you need to contact your network operator to deactivate the old SIM and activate the new one.

A third possibility, though less likely, is that you have a faulty SIM which need to be replaced.

Unlock samsung E1120 give me a code please

If it is a network lock which you want to remove then you will need to contact the network to get a network unlock code.
If it is a phone lock which has been set but you do not know what it is then the phone will need to be taken to a mobile phone repair shop to get the software completely reset. This will remove any locks which have been set on the phone, as well as any information which is on the phones memory
Unfortunately there are no master reset codes anything.

Hope it helped

Network problem

You have one of two options to remove a network lock on this phone: either contact the original airtime provider and ask for the lock to be removed or take it to a phone shop and pay for the lock to be removed. A network lock cannot, as far as I know, be removed remotely.
