Need unlocking code.....

Postby Matney » Fri, 15 Apr 2005 8:47 pm

I have a Nokia 3315 which was purchased in March 2004 in OZ. We moved to Singapore in December 2004. I did not get the HP unlocked before we left and seem unable to do it now. Can anyone help me unlock this HP, please, legally??? I don't think anyone in the family can even remember the HP number we had in OZ if that makes a difference. :oops:

Thanks for your help!

unlock the sim card? or pin number on the phone itself?

I know whenever i get a phone serviced, the pin no. on the phone itself gets reset. Not sure how they do that, whether it's some capacitor/battery the service guy removes so it flats out, or by other method, but i'm certain if you have the paperwork to show it's yours & not a stolen phone they can unlock it without problems.

if you have a SIM card from one of the telecom in singapore Starhub, M1, Singtel, then you can ask them to unlock it. I think the unlock code should be based on IMEI number of your handset. Good luck! :-)

Hope this helps...

Bear also in mind that if the phone in question is a stolen one, the telco's can actually block you using it regardless of what sim card you have in it. I did read in the paper 2 or 3 years back about various telco's from UK/Aust/other parts of the world forming a joint database of stolen hand phones, based on the imei no's... Not sure if Singapore is a part of that agreement.

if you want the unlock code then go to mobile.box.sk

As to telco's blocking via the IMEI - they have the capability but they're not actually using it, at least not in Australia - it costs them far too much (due to lost revenue)

I've heard differently. But at the same time, not many people bother reporting their phones as stolen in the hope of getting them back. They lose their value so quickly these days.
