Re: help with restriction code

Your phone is probably sim locked to your previous network. Since your contract is over you should contact me for the code to unrestrict your phone so you can use sim cards from other networks with it.

Re: help with restriction code

Once you get the code, you can enter it as follows:

Enter the 15 digit Network Unlock Code as follows:

#pw+ followed by the 15-digit unlock code then +1#

For example: #pw+123456789012345+1#

The keypad will only allow you to enter numeric digits.

To enter p, press the * (star) key three times.

To enter w, press the * (star) key four times.

To enter +, press the * (star) key two times.

5. The phone will display ?Phone restriction off?. The handset is now unlocked.

Re: help with restriction code 3320

Which one is it you don't have, the restriction code or the security code? I think it has been made abundantly clear in this topic that only your operator can help with the restriction code.

If you've lost the lock code and it isn't the default 12345 then you'll have to take your phone and proof of ownership along to a Nokia Care Point for then to reset the code. Back your data up as this might entail wiping the phone's entire memory clean.

Re: help with restriction code

Sounds like the Phone was Network locked..You will have to contact the Operator with which it was locked to get the Restriction code.

If your Nokia 6230i is asking for restriction code means it is still locked to the service provider you were using before..So to use it in all networks you need to unlock it...

Unlocking can be done by contacting the service provider...

Re: help with restriction code

This is to be able to use the phone to another Service Provider. Is this right, Giuletta1? If yes, you have to contact the Network Operator in which the phone is tied up with. They are the ones who can legally provide the unlock code of the phone.

You may refer to grschinon's post above (Message 12 of 20) if you are referring to the security code of the phone.
