Nokia 1100

This is not a PC question. I have code to unlock mobile but do I have to take sim card out first. Advice on how to enter code would be appreciated.

try looking on the moneysavingexpert web site they have an article on unlocking

not much help i'm afraid but i'd tick as resolved then post on the mobile world forum :-)

have tried mobile forums no replies. Got codes from moneysaving but no instructions

jim63 do you have the nokia disk that came with the phone? or the instruction book. If you have the code you have to find the entry in the menu to enter the code and it does it for you.

Just have the book. What entry do you mean.

possibly factory reset

I will email my youngest I know she has done it.

my daughter has forgotten what she did but thinks it was something like #PWxxxxxxxxx where the x's are replaced with the code you have been given and possibly the phones IMEI no. as well. If she remembers anymore I will forward it to you.

My daughterr has sent this "Right, as far as I can see this is what you have to do....
type #pw+ with the code right after the + then a # after the code

To make a "p", press '*' 3 times
To make a "w", press '*' 4 times
To make a "+", press '*' twice
But I believe you only get 3 chances to get it right or you lock the phone up completely. If they get really stuck there is a chap on ebay who generates the codes and what you have to type in for 99p. All they'd need to do is search for Nokia 1100 unlocking and they will see LOADS of them."

Hope it helps.
