    I didn't use a random code. I got the unlock code from the service provider. Also I called Nokia, and they said they cannot unlock it. They just explained me how to reset the phone.

    I didn't use a random code, but the unlock code I got from the service provider (T-mobile).
    I called Nokia, and they said they cannot unlock the phone. They just explained me how to reset the phone, but it is still unlocked.

    No, I never upgraded or repaired the phone.

Next time instead of trying random unlock codes request it from the service provider. "not allowed" means that the wrong code was tryed more of 5 times. now you must send your phone to nokia repair to unlock it.

    you ever upgraded your phone firmware? or ever send the phone to repair?


  • Duarte Nunes May 27, 2010

    that is strange then! if you have any T-Online store near i advice you to go there with your phone or try the suport page on T-Online website. If you allready paid for the code you don´t have to pay nothing more. it´s T-Online fault for providing a wrong code

I want to unlock it


The Mobile Device Unlock code allows the device to use a SIM card from another wireless carrier. This may be necessary when traveling internationally. To enter the Mobile Device Unlock code, follow these steps:
  1. See if your phone is eligible to unlock: Mobile Wireless Device Unlocking.
  2. Contact Customer Care to request the Mobile Device Unlock code for your phone.
  3. Turn on the phone with the non-T-Mobile SIM card. The device displays 'Please input unlock code.'
  4. Enter the unlock code. If successful, the device displays 'Phone is unlocked.'
  5. Stop if you receive an error message. The device may lock permanently if the incorrect code is entered multiple times.

Tried to unlock it but does not work. The 15 digits is 357999035259730. or should i just call to get it done?


No, don't call it !

Since you didn't tell us the model, please try the solution below:

Model : Most Nokia's (excluding BB5 Models)

1 - Switch ON your phone without a SIM Card
2 - Enter the code ( e.g. #PW+XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX+7# )

Important Note: If your model is a Nokia BB5 Model then you need to enter #PW+XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX+1# (XXX's = the code)

The letter P will appear after quickly pressing the star button ( * ) 3 times
The letter W will appear after quickly pressing the star button ( * ) 4 times
The letter + will appear after quickly pressing the star button ( * ) 2 times

3 - The phone should show the message "SIM Restriction Off" or a similar message to confirm that is it unlocked!
4 - You will not need to enter any of the other codes but it will not harm your phone if you choose to enter all the codes.
If nothing happens after you enter the full unlocking code, re-enter the code using these alternative method.


Alternative method 1: Most Nokia's

1 - Switch ON your phone with a sim card that it does NOT accept
2 - The phone will either prompt you for a restriction code or give you the option to click on "undo"
3 - Now re-enter the unlock code and you should get the message "SIM Restriction Off" or a similar message.
4 - You will not need to enter any of the other codes but it will not harm your phone if you choose to enter all the codes we sent you.
Alternative method 2: Newer Models : e.g. Nokia 6010, 6020, 6021, 6101

1 - Switch ON your phone with a sim card that it accepts and allow the phone to load to the main screen
2 - Now type the unlock code and press the green call button to enter it (you may not need to hit the green button)
3 - You should get the message "SIM Restriction Off" or a similar message to confirm that the phone is now unlocked.
4 - You will not need to enter any of the other codes but it will not harm your phone if you choose to enter all the codes you received.
5. If the #PW+XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX+7# code does not work try the #PW+XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX+1# code.


Unlock Codes Troubleshooting:
Error - "Code error message"
Do not attempt entering any further unlock codes if you get this message. You only get 5 attempts at getting the correct unlock code and after that you will no longer be able to unlock your phone using unlock codes.

Error - "cannot undo restriction / not allowed"
This message means that you have used up your 5 attempts that you get to enter the correct unlock code. You phone can no longer be unlocked using unlock codes. The only way you will now be able to unlock you phone is by purchasing unlocking hardware and/or software to physical unlock your phone using an unlock data cable.

Note: If you got this message in less than 5 attempts, bear in mind that the previous owner may have already used up some of the 5 attempts. Unfortunately, there is no way of resetting the counter on the phone.

Forgot my security code please help for razr v3 motorola


If you want to unlock your Motorola phone to use it on another network, consider unlocking by entering a code. Code unlocking is the easiest way to remove the SIM lock of your handset. Just enter the code with the instructions below and it's unlocked. If you don't have a code yet, you can get one in my eBay store here:

How to Enter Unlock Codes on Motorola phones:

  1. Switch ON your phone with a not allowed SIM Card,
  2. Phone should show "Enter Special or Subsidy Code",
  3. Enter unlock code.
  4. Your phone is now unlocked.
WARNING: if any of these messages appear :
- "Contact Service Provider"
- or "Tamper Alter"
- or "Wait Before Enter Special Code"
- or "Contact Service'
It's because you or somebody else has already entered too many wrong codes. You just have to leave the phone ON on the error message and after 1hr - 8hrs the message "Enter Special Code" will appear again!
Note: If your phone is on a 3G network enter **057*, then another window will appear to enter the unlock code.
