Reflashing (updating the firmware) the unit does not remove the SIM lock. For a SIM lock unlocking code, you must get it from the network operator who locked it in the first place.

Restricted only into one network

If the Nokia is restricted then you need to unlock the phone to use it with other GSM network. There are many sites providing unlocking codes. I had a personal experience in unlocking my BB 8900 phone from which is a reliable service unlocks the phone within 30 minutes and also cheap.

I cannot get my nokia 5800 to upgrade to the latest firmware, it keep telling me that there is none available but there is. any short cut? when i try to ota through the phone, it just brings me to a...

The latest firmware is not available for ALL nokia 5800 phones. It depends on your Product code. By doing this Nokia can control which features make it to our handsets by request of mobile phone operators. Orange for example might not want the Nokia music store on the phones.

The generic product code for the UK is 0552438 (this generic code means it not assigned to a network and therefor will receive all the available updates without restrictions set by the networks)

to change your product code follow the link bellow

Themes are not runnig properly in my nokia 3110,the mobile gets restarted??

Yes, it seems software problem in your phone. You have to update firmware of your phone by tool like JAF, UFS or any other compitable tool. Nearby cellphone technician can also flash the phone. He will charge little.

Codes for ireland n95

The default unlock code is 12345 unless the previoous owner changed it.

Updating the firmware on an N95-2 will reset the security code to 12345.

However, your original query wasn't that clear. Is it the phone's security code you're asking for or the unlock code that allows you to use SIM cards from networks other than the original one the phone was used on (so-called restriction code)? Only the original network can provide the restriction code.
