If the phone was asking to input the operator code, then using the new sim you have to still contact the network provider to allowed you to use it.

thanks

You need to unlock the phone first, go to any phone repair shop and have it unlocked for few $$

    When you buy a phone it is normally locked for use only with original operator, unless otherwise specified. To use a different operator you need to unlock the phone.
    You can have it unlocked or do unlock yourself.
    Let us know model if you want help in doing unlock yourself.
    If you are not experienced in this kind of operation I suggest going to a phone shop

    dear aminasalem



    fixya is not a phone unlocking service.

    you can get the unlocking code from

    www.mobile2mobile.com



    Or as ginko said from a local service center / phone shop



    according to my sources there is no public unlocking software, I have a 4 year old code calculator but it doesnt support your phone. you need to contact a local phone shop / service center or a unlocking website with the required tools or software



    or then hope that there is some phone unlocking guru on this website, so keep asking for more advice maybe you get lucky.

  • Ekse Apr 28, 2008

    There is no unlock code for your device it has to be flashed.

  • Ekse Apr 28, 2008

    IMPORTANT NOTICE. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY - The Nokia N73 is a BB5 handset that can be unlocked only via a TESTPOINT procedure. Your phone must first be flashed to a specific firmware version. All phone contents (contacts, pictures, videos, music, games, applications etc.) will be lost so please ensure you make a backup of all important information from your phone before sending it to us. Once the phone has been flashed to the correct firmware version, we need to remove the mainboard from the phone to enable us to connect the testpoints to specific points on the mainboard. Because the mainboard has been removed, any warranty remaining on the phone will be void. Please be sure that you understand and can accept this before completing your order.

Telipol should be able to answer and fix this problem for you. I don't think it is a owner simlock--probably just an incompatible SIM type and phone network type.

I forget n73 security cod


hello there....well its quite simple...there is nothing wrong with your phone ...its your SIM... if it is asking for a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code...call your subscriber and ask them for PUK code,entering this code will reset your sim

if u keep entering wrong your sim will be damaged so call them

If the error message is saying sim damaged call them and ask for a "sim replacement" you will get a new sim while you will retain the same number ,however you will lose the phone numbers and other data stored in sim,this can be free but it depends on the company and how 'customer friendly they are

Hope this help
Cheers
