how to enter the unlock code on a nokia lumia 800

hello,

 

please can someone help?

 

i have a nokia lumia on t-mobile, i have received the unlock code from t-mobile.

 

i have entered the code but it keeps saying incorrect code???

 

i have tried it with other network micro sims but it doesnt remove the restriction.

 

i have 5 attempts remaining.

 

is there a particular procedure i have to follow?  like with other previous nokia handsets etc.

 

all help/advice appreciated, thanks in advance

@Epirus

 

From which country was Lumia 800 supplied on T-Mobile?

 

Have you received an eight digit code and did you key this in after getting PIN request when you inserted SIM for new network?

when It came up asking for the PIN, did you enter the PIN number you've set on the sim card?

(not the 8 digit number T-mobile gave you

 

If you haven't set a PIN number on the 3 sim, the default one is 0000

 

Be aware though that if it is the SIM PIN it's asking for, you only get 3 chances before it Bars the SIM

 

You won't get the PW+ method of unlocking this phone as this is a symbian thing, not WP
