    Hi Paul, thanks ever so much for your help, but unfortunately none of the codes have worked. I've even tried dialling 112, but the phone won't let me with the Sim card inserted. Not sure what to do now, but your help is much appreciated. Best wishes Jane

    hi jane first i need to tell you how to enter the code you enter it with no sim card in the phone ok.
    The code will look like #pw+???????????????+?#
    after the # to get p you need to press * 3times quick and to get w press * 4 times quick and to get + press * twice quick.
    Now you know how to get p and w and + onto your phone.
    Now for the codes their are seven different codes for your imei number but you only get 5 trys at getting the right code after 5 trys the only way to remove the simlock is by a cable to a computer getting it wrong 5 times wont damage the phone so dont be worried about that.
    Now usually if code number 1 dont unlock it then code 7 will each code is to undo different locks on phone ie one code will be for orange sim and one for o2 but usually code 7 unlocks them all ok but try them in this order 1, 7 , 5 , 3 if its still not unlocked by now but it should be but if not try any other code you havnt tried but from exp it should be no problem ok here are the codes enter them exactly as they are only do 1 at a time and wait 30 sec or more before you enter next code ok this should stop the 5 trys and let you try all of them even switch phone off after each code for 30 sec should let you try all codes but you probably wont need to try more than 2 anyway.
    Here are the codes
    #pw+012933334051335+1# try 1st
    #pw+427937446551631+3# try 4th
    #pw+425877743320771+5# try 3rd
    #pw+909872526710771+7# try 2nd
    Now they are all the codes for your phone if you still need further help let me know ok.
    Now there is 1 other way of using a different sim card in your phone but this dont work on all nokias but you could try it anyway but doing it this way will only let you use the sim card till you switch the phone off then you will need to do it again you could try this way if you like here it is ok.
    With the barred sim card in switch phone on then dial 112 press call then # send , end , send ,end.
    After doing this you should be able to use the sim card untill the phone is turned off then back on again.
    Let me know how you get on i know its alot of info but it does work and will allow you to use different sim cards ok

  • paul proctor Jan 15, 2008

    Ill have another look for you now ill check all the codes are correct failing this the only problem that i have come across is with the software version on the phone if you could press *#0000# do this with working sim card in this should show you the software version it will give you make of phone then under neath it will have v 3.4 as an example some software versions have restricted the unlock code setting and the only way to unlock is buy using a cable and computer the cheapest place to get this done is in a market or small phone shop as the bigger names like car phone warehouse will charge alot higher to unlock the phone than a small independant trader will charge.
    if you tell me software version i will check for you but sorry if its not possible to use the codes but will double check for you ok
