I have just brought a new nokia..its only on tesco and would like yo unlock it to any or o2...i no it can be done by taking it to a shop..but iv had alook on the net..and have read u can download programs what calculate the code by using ur IMEI number and network number etc. i have tryed using variouse programs but none have seemed to work...does anybody no if this is posible..and if it is...how to do it?

Not a clue I'm afraid, to get it unlocked typically costs a tenner suggest you just do that it would be a lot less trouble.

What Model is it? If it is dual band I thin k you can buy any other Sim card and just put it in.Borrow one from someone you know and try it.I have a Nokia which I use with 2 different Sims, one in the UK ( T-mobile) and Spain ( Telefonica).

How many times have you tried entering the unlock codes?

From memeory if you try 5 times without success the phone is permanently locked and can only be unlocked using a cable and correct software or an unlocking clip.

You must be really unlucky if unlockme cant do it. He also does a 100% guarantee hotline service, but it costs a fiver I think.

Did you ask on the site or did you just download prog and try yourself ?. Like phono says you only have 5 chances.
