    Did you change the sim card from the phone and this started coming up? Do codes 0000, 00000, 1234 or 12345 work?

    or did you enter your sim card pin number wrong 3 times?

    You see SIM lock on the screen? is it asking for a code or just Stating SIM LOCK?

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    The phone most likely has a security feature turned on that asks for a sim lock code if a foregin - not the original sim card is entered into the phone. Take the card out and turn it on, go take a look into the phones security settings and see if sim lock is turned on. - switch it off.

    If you think this is a network lock, which it doesn't seem to be to me, you could still get a unlocking code from any of the following services --- ---

    Unfortunately fixya is not a unlock code distributor. We can help you with your products but most of the time we will not have any unlocking codes for you. Unless someone from the above sites comes and works here, then maybe.

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    well - no it can not be a network lock. Please do not purchase a unlocking code to this problem as it can't be it.

  • Ekse Oct 09, 2010

    If the default codes of 1234, 12345, 0000 and 0000 do not work and you do not know what the code is, Try entering *2767*3855# into the phone, this is a master reset and hopefully will remove the sim lock.

    enter the code without sim card.

If the phone locked to a particular network then you need to unlock the network lock. You can get the unlock code through online. Give your IMEI number & get the unlock code for ur mobile .............You also get through online..........I will suggest the website which is doing good service can approach this website.

Nokia N83 Not Working

Carrier named on SIM card probably not same as Carrier this phone is locked too. If so, get correct carriers Sim Card. Carrier can be seen on powerup splash screen pic. Or, unlock phone.

Sim cards for all carriers can be found on ebay. They are usually pay-as-you-GO phone no contract SIMs. but once you activate SIM, just call carrier and switch your number and/or choose one of their minutes plans. Not problem. They change your number over the wireless, and your contract over the phone..
