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.

I need the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. Type this code in your phone to get it: *#06# you can also find it beneath the battery. I also need to know the network that the phone is locked on, and the country the network is from. Then I will give you the codes.
You can unlock it, but your contract will not go away. If you signed on the dotted line for 18 months or whatever, then that is when the contract will end.
Type *#06# to displays the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number, that's the number required to unlock your phone. However your service provider could BLOCK it permanently.
