    Hey guys, i called cingular and got unlocking instructions and codes and the operator told me that it worked for both of my nokia 3100b's. It only worked for one of them, and when im using a certain sim card. the person did not tell me that it would permanently lock after 5 tries. Now i have 2 permanently locked phones. I searched the forum and saw that a "stock reset?" worked to completely reset the phones. Can anyone help me and let me kno if i can reset them? Thanks.

    The SIM unlock code is for a specific IMEI no. so no way can one unlock code work on 2 phones. I am not sure though why would it only work with a specific SIM, could explain that one please.

    Once it is permanently locked, the only way to unlock would be with a cable and a Griffin box and you would have to send it away to one of the unlocking places and pay to have it done...sorry.
