Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

I have been told by different cellular phone companies that its very hard to get an unlock code for a cell phone that works, and if it does, sometimes the new company you go to may reject your phone. Is this true? I dont want to pay for an unlock code if it wont work, would like to try a free one if possible, what do I do?

NETWORK UNLOCK CODE:

You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile...
The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Flash-your-cell-phone
It has an video explanation.

If your mobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock code(NUC) by just contacting the current network provider customer care department.It is free of cost.

The restriction code can be got from your old service provider..This restriction code is kept to prevent someone who stole the mobile from using it with another provider...

They will have a security check done with your date of birth etc..to verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..

After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..

It is all free of cost do not pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.

The above procedure works and you can verify that by seeing the rating of an happy customer here..

My sister from america send her phone motorola c168 model, i insert india sim it asking network pni no, Plsease give me how to resolve it,


Hi
If your foreign cell phone has a setting that blocks your user ID being transmitted (your cell number being displayed to the person you call) your cell phone will not work in India unless you turn this setting off in your phone. I found this out the hard way when my cell phone would only accept calls and not allow me to dial out. As soon as I changed my settings the phone was back to normal and worked fine.

Remember that your cell phone will work only if it is unlocked. Most cell phone companies when they sell their phones to subscribers want them to stay with their company and usually have their phones locked so as to prevent subscribers from switching phone companies.

If your phone is locked you cannot use a Sim Card of an Indian phone company unless you get the phone unlocked. This can be done by speaking to your foreign phone company and getting them to unlock your phone or getting it unlocked by a technician in India.

What is the unlock code for a motorla i335?


Sim unlock?

All I can say is. Sim Unlocking won't do you any good. The IDEN network is a totally different network than any other company. IDEN is actually Motorola's own cellular network. Nothing but IDEN can use it

How to remove the phone lock code for sony w200i


Many cellular providers around the world lock their phones so that they cannot be used on the networks of other providers. Unlocking codes remove the lock and make the phones usable on any other network that utilizes the same type of technology.
    History
  1. Phones that are locked to specific carriers use devices called Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards that are provided by the carrier at the date of activation. Only phones on a Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) network use SIM cards. GSM is a standard that was started by the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations in 1982, adopted by over a dozen European countries in 1987, and then finalized in 1989. GSM is now the most used typed of cellular network in the world.
  2. Function
  3. A locking code prevents a phone from working unless it is using a SIM card from a specific company. The lock forces customers to purchase only phones and SIM cards from their cellular carrier or from specific manufacturers. Phone locking codes can also work as a security measure by preventing thieves from using a stolen phone if they are trying to use a SIM card from a different cellular carrier.
  4. Geography
  5. There are no laws covering locking codes for mobile phones in the United States, Spain, and the UK, so each GSM company in those countries has vastly different policies regarding them. Both Singapore and Belgium have outlawed phone locking codes and France has laws in place that compel cellular carriers to provide the unlocking code to their customers once they have only six months remaining in their service contract.
  6. Types
  7. You can acquire an unlocking code for your GSM phone in several different ways. The most common method available is to contact your cellular provider's local office and ask for a code that you enter directly into the phone's settings menu. You can also call your cellular provider's customer servicemag-glass_10x10.gif office and have them send an over-the-air update that automatically unlocks the phone. A few companies also offer services that allow you to mail in a phone so that their technicians can enter the unlocking code and then mail it back to you.
  8. Considerations
  9. Cellular providers in the United States are not required to give you an unlocking code, so many only offer them under specific circumstances, such as if you move out of their coverage area or your service contract ends. You can also obtain unlocking codes for certain types of phones from other sources such as websites or third party phone companies.

Puk code of +639266271609


The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.
