Will this phone (Asha Nokia 201) work if the sim is swapped to the new one VM have sent - assuming they can provide the correct unlock code ? It is locked to VM and was bought at one of their shops some years ago. Only the old red sim works as the new purple sim and an EE sim require the code to unlock the phone. If I remember correctly there was a problem with some or all of the older Nokia phones being rendered useless due to compatiblity issues ?
Apologies in the delay picking this up. I am just going to go off your last post to save everything being talked about again. When you have been given the code to unlock your phone, did it come by email also? Just to make sure if the one that was given on the phone 100% matched?
Hello Ryan, I received the identical code by email but both were incomplete as they omitted the #pw+ before the code and +1# after. This also didn't work but changing the +1 to +7 did finally unlock the phone. I now await another replacement new SIM that has been ordered as the previous one had been cancelled by VM unbeknown to me. Once I have it I will do the swap and determine if fully compatible with the old Nokia's symbian operating system.
