I had the same trouble until I realized that you have SWIPE the unlock marker from left to right, not just click it like it says in the manual.

Re: C3-01 Touch and Type Keypad Lock/Unlock Issue,,

1st Of All, If u just got oyur Nokia C3-01 Device, then You must be having the old version of SOftware in it, maybe v05.68. So In that SW, You have to press the unlock, there is no swipe to unlock,
So, You can clearly see, there is a Button at the Right of your mobile below the Volume Buttons (Right If you Have your Device Screen Facing you, Left If you ahve the Back Battery Cover Facing You)

So Press that Button, you will see your display glow showing " UNLOCK " option in the middle, Press It.

It will get Unlock.
Also, after Unlocking, Before adding anything to Phone Memory (like contacts, messages,etc) make sure to update your Mobile FW/SW to the latest version out there (which is v06.05)

So, If you have a PC with internet connection, connect your Device with USB, and Use Nokia Software Updater (Or Nokia Ovi Suite, whatever you have got Installed In your PC) and Start Updating ASAP, Alot Of Bug Fixes have been Taken Place,

If Still Not Unlocked, RETURN YOUR DEVICE NOW, because your Device is Faulty.


If I Helped Press The Star Against My Name At the Left SiDe :smileyvery-happy: 

If I've helped in any way, a click upon the White star to the left would always be appreciated.

If however my answer also solves your problem clicking below " ACCEPT AS SOLUTION " it will benefit other users!

Thanks to you for guiding about keypad lock. Can't thank you enough. I just bought it today but was not happy to see key guard was not unlocking but SWIPING technique solved the issues. God bless.

Re: C3-01 Touch and Type Keypad Lock/Unlock Issue,,

the correction to the manual is
"to unlock the phone keyboard. Press rhs RED key, and then when you see the green animated bar appear on screen SWIPE you finger on the bar to the RIGHT, and it unlocks."

Then you have in your hands one of the greatest ever mobile phones.

Re: C3-01 Touch and Type Keypad Lock/Unlock Issue,,

I can't believe it, I've returned one phone, read all the manual from front to back incase I missed something, spending ages on line trying to see if its was me or the phone. Felt like throwing in the towel banging my head against the wall in frustration and going back to my old phone. Thankfully I just read your post to discover it was that easy!!!!!
Can't thank you enough, if only they put that in the manual FFS!!!

My phone has a version of 07.51..

 

Still the problem of unlocking exists, I have to swipe the green sliding icon 5 to 6 times then it  unlock.

The problem start as the warrenty over & updated new software. I also write the feedback through Nokia suite. But stil there is no reply till date.

Not a solution but a workaround. When this occurs do not attempt repeatedly to open it. Let the screen to go in sleep mode & then open it. It will then open.

I reinstalled phone software 03 times but still the issue of unlocking exists.

Touchpad is wake up very slowly, worst experience ever with Nokia. Better with Samsung.

I have Nokia c3-01

Brought from Bangladesh. When I brought after 3 months it gives the Touch problem. Nokia centre fixed it. Again after 2 months same Touch problem, Nokia centre gave solution by changing motherboard. After 2/3 months same Touch problem my warranty was end.

I changed Touch pad by my own cost. Now after 5 months same Touch problem is started. Difficult to unlock key pad & where I touch it shown other place.

Dear, Now I need a complete solution, can u give me this? I never suffer like this problem from when I use Nokia device. Nokia is my faviourite & first device but now I m suffering with C3-01 from beginning.
