Welcome to Fixya!

To be able to unlock the phone, you would need an unlocking code. Unlocking codes are not free but the fee is minimal. You have to be ready with the IMEI number whcih can be found on the back of the phone when you remove the battery. To get the unlock code, go to Super Unlock.

If you have any questions, please feel free to come back.

Thank you for using Fixya!

The phone needs to be network unlocked from apple server to use it with any sim card worldwide. You need to pay for this either at local shop or online webstore.

Restriction is nothing but the unlocking for your mobile,
unlocking means in your phone just removes the SIM card restriction on your phone so that you can use any other network's SIM card.
To get the restriction code for your Nokia model mobile, just visit this site www.wickedunlock.com/nokia-c3/rs11wp9 , in this site just give your IMEI number , country & network lock after that within a short period you can get the restriction code for your nokia mobile............I hope this may helpful to you.........

Iphone brought in China, a replica hence the price


if you have tried your uk sim, then it may be sim locked and possibly to chinese networks, you can unlock iphones, but replica unsure, try your local phone dealer, not main high street chains but those little shops that sell second hand.

Have you checked your sim card in another phone? Does it work? If yes, was this phone bought new or second hand? If second hand there is a possiblity that it is barred? Lost and stolen phones can be barred by networks (in UK anyway) and have their IMEI's blocked on all networks to prevent use.
Other than that have you tried a manual search in the networks menu/ Does it pick up anything? If nothing then the phone could be faulty? Hope that helps?

Still problem and country code


CHECK SIM-LOCK
Note - If you bought your Nokia on UK Vodafone or UK Cellnet you do not need to check this because they both transmit on GSM900, and they don't lock the phones. However if you bought your phone on UK Orange or UK One2one your phone may be blocked. The reason is that they both transmitt on GSM1800. To make a call on GSM1800 you need what is known as a "Dual band" phone. A dual band phone is able to transmit on both GSM900 and GSM1800, so they lock the phones so you can't use it with any other network simcard. If you find that your phone is locked you can try different software to unlock it. (we havn't found one that works yet), or you can ask your service provider who will gladly exchange the 10 digit code for about £35.
This is how to check the status of the 4 different locks. Aslo don't try entering the wrong number, because after 3 times it will block the phone for good.

There are 4 different locks on your Nokia phone.
  • COUNTRY-LOCK
  • NETWORK-LOCK
  • PROVIDER-LOCK
  • SIMCARD-LOCK
The code to read out the sim-lock status of your phone is

#PW+(MASTERCODE)+(Y)#
  • # = DOUBLE-CROSS
  • W = PRESS "*" THREE TIMES
  • P = PRESS "*" FOUR TIMES
  • + = PRESS "*" TWO TIMES
  • MASTERCODE = 1234567890
  • Y = NUMBER 1 TO 4
The master code is a secret code. The code has 10 digits, To read out the sim-lock status you can enter every combination you want!
"Y" Shows the status of the network-lock. Here you can enter a number from "1" to "4". The "4" is for the sim-card lock.

SIM-LOCK CHECKS
  • #PW+1234567890+1# = GIVES PROVIDER-LOCK STATUS
  • #PW+1234567890+2# = GIVES NETWORK-LOCK STATUS
  • #PW+1234567890+3# = GIVES COUNTRY-LOCK STATUS
  • #PW+1234567890+4# = GIVES SIM-CARD-LOCK STATUS.
