Hi,

A word of advice dont publish your imei somebody can mess it up like a pie for all seasons.

Before trying anything else, contact your service provider and ask for an unlock code.

Usually, if you've been a customer of theirs for some time, they will provide you with an unlock code for free. This is, by far, the best way to get your phone unlocked.

Download software to generate the unlocking code. Software is available on some websites for free and some pay websites that also offer support if things go wrong.

See external links below.

Find the Serial number of the cell phone, also known as your IMEI number.

Using the software you have downloaded, enter in your Manufacturer (which is in this case Nokia), your model number, and your IMEI number.

Also enter your country and the Network. Calculate the code, this may be different depending on which software you are using. If your phone is the Nokia 6300phone, select the model 6300, they are the same phone.

#pw+403927744443466+7#

Remove the SIM card from your Nokia phone.

This is typically done by removing the back cover of the phone and removing the battery and sliding the card out. Put the battery back in and power the phone on.

You will see a message "Insert SIM Card".

Enter all of the characters you see in your code, including the # symbols.

To get a 'p' press * 3 times, to get a '+' press the * key 2 times, to get a 'w' press the * key 4 times.

Disregard any spaces in the code.

In order to unlock your phone you generally need to enter only one code.

Start with the first one. If your phone is not unlocked by typing the first code (MCC+MNC), use code "7" (Multilock)

Once you have finished entering a code that works you should see a message that says "SIM is not restricted" or "Restriction off" message depending on your model.

If not, try entering another code. Message "Cannot undo restrictions" means the phone is "hard-locked" and cannot be unlocked by code.

Tips

Unlocking only applies to GSM phones, phones using other cellular technologies, cannot be unlocked without special software and hardware.

Switch off the phone. Hold the keys "3", "*" and "Call" and switch the phone on. Keep the buttons held down till you see the word "Formatting..." on the screen. Make sure that the battery is full charged before you attempt this. This should reset the phone lock code.

Warnings

Attempting to unlock your phone is done at your own risk.

Although unlocking your phone is legal, some cell phone operators might choose to void your warranty should you unlock your phone (then again, some cell phone operators won't mind).

Most phones only allow you to try a certain number of unlock tries, Nokia phones have a limit of 5 tries.

After that, the phone becomes "hard-locked", meaning it cannot be unlocked without using special equipment.

Most of the newer phones will not work with the codes generated by the free unlock programs.

You can get a free unlock code generator software free from here :

I would like to unlock my phone so I can use it in Canada when needed


Good question, detailed description and precise.
If you have enough money to go to Canada, you surely can afford to buy a cheap second prepaid phone or you just use rooming. You could also look for a affordable Dual-SIM mobile phone in case you dont want to carry two phones. They several available and if you go regularly abroad it might be worth the 60 bucks.

I have lost my phone can i track it using the imei number


Greetings - It's an Urban Legend that you can track a cell phone using the IMEI number.

What can be done however is report your IMEI number of the lost phone to your carrier like Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, Cingular or T-mobile and ask them to lock your mobile phone. Your cell phone IMEI number will be blacklisted and refused to connect to the phone networks so that is someone should find and try to use your phone it will not be operational.

Good Luck,

I lost my HTC Touch phone on 13th Aug '10. Please help me to block the phone. The IMEI 356786013967280. You can contact me on limelinger@gmail.com or on cell # +91-98867-58156. Regards, Sandeep


Sandeep, you need to contact the company that provided you the SIM -- in the US the term is your "cell phone carrier" -- they are the only ones that can de-activate the SIM
