Unlocking is useful if you want to bring your smartphone to a new carrier.

Make sure the phone will prompt and ask you for a network code when a different or non-supported network SIM card is inserted and the attempts counter is not 0 .

You must send 15-digit IMEI number (tape *#06# from the dial app to see it) and the original network provider.

Video Overview

  1. Power off your Nokia Lumia.
    • Power off your Nokia Lumia.

    • Insert an unaccepted SIM card.

    • Once the SIM Unlock box appears, provide the unique 20-digit unlock code that you received.

    • That's all.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
