Need help to unlock my Nokia 215

Hello, Can someone please help me to unlock my Nokia 215.

I bought the phone from Argos about 3 years ago and the SIM has since expired with £10 credit on it.

So I don't have a working SIM and I am unable to speak with anyone when calling the Virgin help team.

I want to unlock the phone to use a SIM from another network.

Thank you

Re: Need help to unlock my Nokia 215

Hello David,

  I have spoken to someone in the team.

They gave me an unlock code, however, the code requires a SIM, which I don't have, in order to use the code.

My original SIM was de-activated (wasn't used for a long time because the phone was a back up and not used).

Do I just need to get any SIM to unlock the phone with the code?

Thank you

Hello

If the PAYG sim has not been used for more than 90 days then I am afraid that both the phone number and the credit are lost, the other issue I am afraid that VM no longer sell PAYG sims.

Any SIM when placed in the phone will ask for the unlock code you will then be able too make the phone unlocked for any network.

1. Turn on the phone without any sim card
2. Enter the following sequence (#pw+unlock code+7#) on your NOKIA 215 just like a phone number*
* Characters p, w, + will appear after pressing the *(star) symbol a couple of times
4. Press # at the end to confirm the code
5. Message "SIM restriction OFF" should appear.
Your Nokia 215 is now unlocked !!!
