Pls how can i flash my nokia N95


No matter what network your Nokia N95 phone currently runs on, you can unlock it---or "flash" it---to run on any GSM network. You will only be able to use your unlocked Nokia N95 phone on networks that use SIM cards---such as T-Mobile and AT&T---and not on CDMA networks such as Sprint and Verizon, which do not provide SIM cards.
Read more: How to Flash a Nokia N95
Unlocking the Handset
1
Remove the back cover and the battery from your cell phone. Locate a silver sticker with a bar code on it. Take note of the 15-digit IMEI number printed on it. At this time, also remove the SIM card and write down the numbers printed on the back of it. The SIM card is the small, white data chip in the silver cradle right next to the sticker. You will need these numbers to obtain your Nokia unlock code.
2
Request a Nokia N95 unlock code from your service provider. If they cannot provide you with an unlock code, you can buy one online.
3
Replace the SIM card, battery and cover. Fully charge your handset.
4
Turn on your handset and type "#PW+".
5
Enter the unlock code given from your phone company or website. Make sure you dial the number exactly as it was given to you. If you dial this number incorrectly three times, you will be permanently locked out of your handset.
6
Dial "+1#". At this point, the screen on your Nokia N95 should read "SIM Restriction Off."

Inserting SIM Card
1
Switch your handset off and remove the back cover and battery.
2
Remove the SIM card.
3
Insert the new SIM card into the SIM card slot. Now that the phone has been unlocked, this can be a SIM card from any U.S. service provider that uses SIM cards.
4
Replace the back cover and battery and switch the cell phone on. The screen should now read the name of the new service provider

Nokia 3110c mobile, i forgot security code.now how...


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.
Which is the one that you want?
The default security code for Nokia is 12345

Not sure if this is the right thing...

Keep saying insert SIM card


You are trying to use a SIM from another Network or Handset but your phone is LOCKED to your old network and/or to a specific SIM card and number: this is why it is asking you for the unlock code to remove the restriction. It you are no longer under contract or obligations (such as minimum total recharge amounts for apre-paid handsets), then you could try to request the unlock code from the original service provider of your handset.
As for asking to insert SIM card, make sure that the SIM is correctly and securely inserted in your handset SIM holder. Also check that the SIM is still functional by inserting it in another handset: SIM card can be permanently and physically disabled if you attempt to enter too many consecutive invalid codes (usually around 10).
Hope it helps and good luck!

The master code to my Nokia 5300 phone


The default security code for Nokia is 12345
IMEI: 353095026615313
Master code: 0377253107
1/ Close all applications on your phone.
2/ With your phone switched ON, remove the battery.
3/ Remove the SIM card.
4/ Replace the battery without the SIM card.

5/ Switch your phone on.
6/ Type any security codes until the phone request the Master code.
When it does, leave your phone still, don’t use it for 15 minutes, then type in the Master code.
This is the code needed to reset the Security code, nothing else, and it’s for your phone only.
If it does not request the Master code, your phone will have to be connected to a computer and an unlock box to restore the Security code.

Are you sure it’s the Master code you need.

Help nokia n73


Well, the good news are the Master Code is correct for your phone. The bad news are:
SIM PIN Code This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even if your sim is put into another handset. The default code is set by the Service Provider (often 0000 on Vodafone, 7890 on Virgin). You can change it if you like, but make sure you don't forget the new code.
Phone Security Code This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. Some phones will accept incoming calls with this lock enabled, but many require the code to be entered even to answer a call. You can also set some handsets to only accept a "new" sim if the phone security code is entered. The default code varies according the handset make and model. You can change it if you like, but make sure you don't forget the new code.
Special Code/Service Provider Lock Code This code is required to allow a phone locked to a particular network's sim cards to be used with a sim card from another network.
The unlock code varies from individual handset to handset.

Which one is it?
The Master Code is used when you have entered your Security code wrongly too many time. The phone requests it, you leave your phone alone for about 10 minutes, then enter the Master Code.

If you want to unlock the network lock, I need to know the Country you're in and the network you're on.
Then I'll send you the codes.
