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

Is a restriction code my imei 353377041042255 i think this is no payment


Restriction code mostly asks for Nokia Mobile Phone@!!!Your Phone is Nokia?what Model,?Because it locked to network so it asking for restriction code...

If your Nokia mobile phone displays Phone Restricted with an Undo option and selecting Undo results in an Enter Restriction Code error, your Nokia mobile phone is Network Locked. This means your Nokia mobile phone has been restricted for use on one specific network and a Restriction Code or Unlock Code must be entered before the phone can be used with alternative networks.
