– Sim card slot is defective
– IMEI is blacklisted by the original carrier
– The phone requires an alternative way to unlock
If your device does not prompt for a code, please contact us for help to diagnose the problem.
“I input the code and received “Code Error” or “Sim Network Unlock Unsuccessful.”
In this case, you want to make sure you gave us the correct information pertaining to your device. Please check the following:
– IMEI when dialing *#06#
– Model number of the device
– Network the phone is locked to
If there are any discrepancies, contact us immediately with the correct information.
If all the information is correct, try the following troubleshooting steps:
– Factory reset the phone; This will wipe the device but may fix the issue. Back up any important data from your phone before proceeding.
“I input the code and received “Cannot Undo Restriction” or “Not Allowed.”
This error message indicates your device is hardlocked.
To reset your lock counter, you will require the following:
– USB Cable for your Nokia phone.
– The correct USB Cable Drivers. Installing the ‘Nokia PC Suite’ software that you can obtain from the Nokia website will install the appropriate USB Cable Drivers. You can find it HERE.
– A small software application that you can download from HERE.
– Your network unlock code (from CellUnlocker.net)
Once you have all of these, follow the directions below:
1) Switch on your phone without a sim card. You should be prompted to ‘Start Phone Without SIM Card’ or similar. Click ‘Accept’ or ‘OK’. Your phone is now in offline mode.
2) Connect your Nokia phone to the PC using the USB Cable. Your phone will display several options, PC Suite Mode’, mass storage mode etc… stay in this screen, do not select any of the options.
3) Start the SendCodeUsb application you downloaded earlier and click on the ‘Read Phone Info’ button. The application should display several lines of information. If it says “not found” replug your phone into the usb, and then click read phone info
4) If the application still displays ‘Not Found’, your USB Cable Drivers are not correctly installed. In this case you will need to uninstall, then re-install the USB Cable Drivers. This procedure will not work unless the drivers are correctly installed. Trying an alternative USB Port may also help. DO NOT move on to the next step until you have successfully installed the USB Cable Drivers and the software can read the information from the phone.
5) Now make sure you check the ‘Check For Fbus’ checkbox. Also make sure the ‘Level(1-7)’ selection is set to the appropriate carrier:
Rogers/Fido: +7 or +1
Telus/Koodo: +5 or +1
T-Mobile USA: +1
UK Networks: +1 and +7
6) Enter Only The Numbers of the correct unlock code into the ‘Unlock Code (15 digits)’ field (e.g. if your correct unlock code was #pw+123456789012345+1# you would enter only 123456789012345 in this field)
7) Click on the ‘Send Unlock Code’ button. The application should confirm that your Nokia phone is now unlocked.
If you are still getting an error message, contact us for further assistance.
“I unlocked the phone but I’m not able to use data or send/receive MMS.”
In this case you will need to adjust what’s called the APN settings. The APN settings vary depending on the service provider you are trying to use. Please contact your service provider and they can assist you with setting this up. There is no separate unlock for data/internet or MMS. If you can call or text, your phone’s network is fully unlocked.
My Phone is asking for the “PUK” or “Security Pin” or “Password”:
If your phone is asking for one of the above, it is requesting a device or sim card passcode lock set on the phone by the user. Once you input this code, you will then be able to input the network unlock code provided by CellUnlocker.net
