Re: Useful codes

Can someone help me with this "little" problem?

 

I've recently updated firmware with official update from nokia web site on my nokia 6288 from 5.2 to 6.94 

 

After update was complete my phone was restarted and everything is working fine except for a fact that my memory card (mini sd 512mb) was locked after firmware update!

I've never had any password on my memory card but now my memory card is asking for a password...

Is there some universal code or password for unlocking my memory card?

Or is it possible to unlock my memory card in some other way but without losing any data on it?

IMEI Number indications

 

Press the following on your mobile *#06# and the-international mobile equipment identity number appears. Then check the 7th and 8th numbers:

Phone serial no. : XXXXXX??XXXXXXX

 

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 02 or 20 this means your cell phone was assembled in Emirates which is very Bad quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 08 or 80 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Germany which is fair quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 01 or 10 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Finland which is very Good

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 00 this means your cell phone was manufactured in original factory which is the best Mobile Quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 13 this means your cell phone was assembled in Azerbaijan which is very Bad quality and also dangerous for your health

In net i got this information


My N79 IMEI 7th and 8th numbers are 02

 

It means that its a bad quality phone.........What can i do now?

the information i got is true or not...plz clarify my dount

Re: Useful codes

That "information" about the IMEI number surfaces every few months and each and every time we debunk it.

It is nonsense. An urban legend and nothing more.

Futhermore, Nokia has manufacturing plants all over the world in order to respond as quickly as possible to local demand. This means that, regardless of the plant where your phone was manufactured, it will be made to exactly the same standards using exactly the same components assembled using exactly the same processes. It will be made to the same standards whether it's made in Hungary, Finland, China or anywhere else.

Re: Useful codes

When we use below mentioned code

 

(*#06# - Find your phone's IMEI number (also on the product label inside the phone's battery casing)) 

 

we can see our device's serial number, then can we find our device origin using that serial number ?.

Re: Useful codes

*I do not know if these codes are allowed to be posted. Most of them are harmless, as the parts that can do harm to your phone require you to enter in your Master Subsidy Lock.

 

For those of you still using CDMA based Nokia phones, the following work. (I have used them on a Nokia 2855i, and Nokia 6275i.)

 

*3001#12345# - NAM programming menu*. Allows you to program your Mobile Device Number (phone number), Authentication Key code, Emergency and service numbers, and allows access to the Network Monitor. Like the one in the old Nokia phones, but it will show much more information.

 

*#786# - Showes life timers for talk time and data usage.

 

*#22384# - Alternate method of enabling the Network Monitor.

 

*#3282# - Data services programming menu*. Allows you to change preferences and settings that relate to data services on your phone.

 

* Some or all options require you to enter your phone's Master Subsidy Lock. Contact your carrier to obtain this lock, but it should be noted that most carriers won't give you this code. There are alternate methods of retrieving this code, if you know what you're looking for.

Re: Useful codes

That code is for an S60 smartphone and does not work on your phone which has the more basic S40 operating system. You should try the Nokia Care Point for the issues you are experiencing.

Re: Useful codes

Is it asking for pin code? If so contact your network or check the paper work supplied with your sim card for that.

Is it asking for a lock code? If so the default code is 12345. If that fails to work you will need to contact the retailer or the person you bought it from.
