N73: call not allowed

Got N73 from vodafone UK with IMEI number: 353640010199756 and reported lost. They blocked the sim card and also the phone, now got a new sim card from vodafone and try it on N73 it appears on the screen " Call Not Allowed". Does it mean i can no longer use this phone? What about using other network? Can anybody help me unblocked or unlocked this phone.

I think they lock the imei too so what you can do is unlock the phone either in repair store or online

SOURCE: N73:call not allowed

If the owner of the phone lost it or had it stolen, they can have the phone blocked, using the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. If that’s the case the phone can only be unblocked by a repair shop.
The SIM card is blocked because the person who's phone it was, doesn't want to pay for calls made by someone else. So the SIM card is never going to work again.

Blacklisting:
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!

Lost my N73 mobile


Hi,

Some recommendations,

1. You'll need a GPS device on the phone and that will only help, all that you can do now is the Report the phone stolen and give the IMEI number to Nokia and they will block it!
2. Having done that report the loss to the local administration & produce the FIR report to all the service providers so that if that phone is used again, can be traced & you get the culprit hanged !!!
Please let us know if that was helpful enough.
Good Luck & Thanks,
Shiv.

Lost n73


If you have lost your phone and have the IMEI you should report it to your carrier. I dont know how many do, but some can block that IMEI so the phone will no longer work.

Fixya cannot trace your phone and find out who is using it now, sorry.

N73 locked i think


Not locked otherwise it would say "insert sim card" sounds like either your phone is barred of it has a fault. If its barred it means its been reported lost or stolen (not saying it has!) if its a software fault and it needs flashing just take it your local unlocking shop i charge £10 in my shop

Please help i wanna unlock my n73


You're probably trying to use a SIM card from a network not supported by the country you're in.
Some networks don't have a roaming agreement between two or more networks service providers to enable the users of one service provider to use their services.

Purchase a new SIM card from a popular network in that country. Ask them to unlock your phone at the same time, because it might be locked on the original network, like Orange, Vodafone, t-mobile etc...
