Question about Nokia 1280 Cell Phone

1 Answer

I have a Nokia 1280 that I purchased in Thailand. I'm in the UK now. I've forgotten it's Thai phone number. There is a valid Thai SIM card in the phone now. To get to see my number I've tried to call and send a text with it, but the calls have failed probably because it won't roam to the UK. Is there a sequence of key strokes to call up it's Thai phone number? Thank you

You have your answer, roaming.
If your phone is not locked to the Thai contract, place a UK card in and use that.

SOURCE: N73:call not allowed

If the owner of the phone lost it or had it stolen, they can have the phone blocked, using the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. If that’s the case the phone can only be unblocked by a repair shop.
The SIM card is blocked because the person who's phone it was, doesn't want to pay for calls made by someone else. So the SIM card is never going to work again.

This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!

SOURCE: Nokia 2310 suddenly stopped sending text message

If the SIM works fine in other phones, there is a phone issue. See if you're eligible for a warranty replacement (eligible if purchased new from AT&T within the last year or if purchased refurbished from AT&T within the last 90 days). If ineligible and you have insurance, use it... there will be a $50 deductible applied to your next bill. If ineligible and you haven't got insurance, get a replacement through somewhere like ebay or craigslist, upgrade (never EVER use wirefly or amazon, trust me) through AT&T preferably, or purchase a gophone (AT&T prepaid) from walmart, walgreens, wherever (If you go to RadioShack, they'll do everything for you). You just put your SIM in it and it will have your phone number and contract information... you don't have to sign up for prepaid service.

.i have forgotten my key guard code code in security code my mobile make is NOKIA 1280 when i put the simcard it need code unlock

this code does not have to do with your phone it has to do with your sim. you should have a pin document which came with your sim card. there should be a PIN and a backup PIN to get you in, if not there is a PUK number if your put the wrong code in more than 3 times it will ask your for the PUK. if you dont have this information speak to your operator and maybe ask them for a replacement sim for your phone number.

Hi if your Nokia 1280 mobile is displaying sim not valid message once you insert your sim in it then it mean your phone is locked to some other network provider due to this it wont accept your sim until you unlock it .You can easily unlock your phone using sites like they are providing unlock code for all mobile models at reliable cost .You first check that whether the code is available for your country and network provider .If yes then pay for it and unlock your phone .

N73 back camera auto on

My dear:
This error usually occurs when you attempt to use a SIM card from a network other than the network from which the phone originated (e.g. your Nokia mobile phone originated from Orange UK and displays the 'Sim Card Not Valid' error when you attempt to use a T-Mobile UK SIM card). The 'Sim Card Not Valid' error usually means the phone has been restricted for use on one specific network and you would need to unlock the phone before alternative network SIM cards can be used.

could You test the new SIM on another phone? Could be the housing of SIM damage on phone - hardware problem - Nokia Service.

in any case you need to find out which network and ask them for the unlock code.

Only the original network to which it is locked can provide this code.

At this stage, call AT&T is probably the best bet. Call back until you get a more knowledgable technical support rep.
