Unlocking Guide for Nokia Phone
  

Then company which sells the mobile phone, they lock the phone before releasing it for the User. These locked phones cannot be used with the any other network. Even if you insert the another SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card to the phone, the phone cannot be used until you enter the unlock code for the phone. Phone unlocking is need for the people who are traveling from one country to another, to use the pre-paid SIM Card of that country.

Generally the Service Provider is having the Unlocking code for the phone but they ask for some charges for providing the same.

Here I have decided to give you the step by step guide for the unlocking the latest Nokia phone so that most of the people looking to get the unlock code find it helpful.

Nokia X2:

First I am starting with the Nokia X2 phone which is the latest phone of the Nokia:
  • Switch off the Nokia X2 Phone and take out the SIM Card
  • Start the Nokia X2 without SIM card
  • Ignore the message on Nokia X2
  • Type #pw+CODE+1# on screen and press Call button
  • “SIM Restriction Off” will display on screen, Your Nokia X2 phone is Unlocked

Note : If you are using the Nokia X2 phone in Canada with the Fido or Rogers Network then you have to Type the different code on screen i.e. #pw+CODE+7#.

There are many sites that provide that unique code for your mobile that is generated from your IMEI number. You have to do little Googling for such sites. Note that they will charge you some amount for the same. You can get those sites from this Google Result.

Before attempting anything else, just contact your service supplier and inquire for an unlock code. Generally, if you have been a consumer of theirs for a few time, they will give you with an unlock code for free. This is, defiantly, the excellent method to get your phone unlocked. Or if it?s not useful for you than there are few download software available on the net to generate the unlocking code. There is some free trial software and there are few buy software. So just go through this.
