    I just purchased an LG L1150 as a replacement phone until I can upgrade. The seller stated that it was locked for AT&T only. The phone has "AT&T Wireless" on the phone itself, and the S/N has "ATT" in it. When I put my SIM card in, I get "Phone Restricted" then if I hit "Cancel", it asks for a "Restriction Code." I called AT&T, who my service is through, and they said the IMEI number is coming up as "Unknown Provider" so they cannot provide a restriction code. What do I do???

My Nokia 6070 says "Restricted" when I insert a SIM card


Have your friend call whatever phone company the cell phone is registered with and ask them for the SIM unlock code. Make sure your friend tells them that he is wanting to unlock the phone so you can use an international SIM card in the phone. Hope this works for you :)
