To find out the unlock code you’ll need the IMEI code, network and the phone model. Just enter the information and the site will automatically generate an unlock code for you.
To find your IMEI code type *#06# into your handset, and note the number.
What to do with the code?
Enter your details and the website (below) will generate an unlock code specific to the model of your phone. The code will look something like this:
#pw+2746763089+1# (Nokia phones)
*2767*637# (Other makes)
Take the Sim card out of the phone and put in a different network’s Sim. Enter the generated code into the phone. You may be given several codes. Try the first one to start with and if this doesn’t work try the others.
How to enter the code
Rather than using the regular text keys you need to use the * key if you want to produce letters as opposed to numbers. To produce a ‘p’, press the * button three times within two seconds; to produce a ‘w’, press the * button four times within two seconds; to produce a ‘+’, press the * button twice within two seconds.
You should now get a message saying ‘phone restriction off’.
