    Hi guys,

    I rang my Customer Service to ask what it would cost to have it unlocked and they quoted me £25!

    So, am trying to unlock it, without feeling like I've been royally ripped off.

    Only problem, I have a Nokia 6131 on T Mobile, and so need help.

    Can I do it for free with a program or calculator I haven't found?


    Thanks for reading

    No, there are no completely free solutions to unlock 6131. Buying the unlock code is probably the cheapest.

    then what about this...?...

    i just found it..

    I have one of those phones. How do I unlock it?
    You need

    Phone (SIM card removed!)
    CA43 or DKU5 cable (Original Nokia with 13 pins)

    Software (http://users.net.yu/~dejan/download/bb5.zip)

    Instructions

    Connect cable to computer and phone
    Set proper COM cable (must be, between 1 and 9)
    Download unlocker, run `install.bat`
    Open file c:/bb5_unlocker/logs/bb5_unlocker.cfg with a text editor set proper COM port (1-9)
    Run c:/bb5 unlocker/BB5logunlocker.exe
    Turn phone on. While it is turning on, click READ PHONE. You should see "DONE"
    Click MAKE LOG, a log will be created. This log is used to generate the codes. Wait until you see "DONE".
    Log file is in folder LOGS. Start BB5_calc.exe to make the PSW file.
    Press button SP UNLOCK and unlock your phone.

    Unlocking the 6131 in the states will cost you $50 too.

    But if you are in good standing with your carrier, and they carried the phone, they normally unlock it for free. I think especially so in the UK.

    Good Luck.

    I haven't kept up with this program. On it's initial release it supported very few original BB5 models. 6131 was released later and was not supported by the original release of the Dejan unlocker. I don't know if the currently available version is capable of it or not.

    Agree. With TMobile or AT&T, you can basically request a unlock code for every 90 days as long as you still have a valid contract with them. If you don't have TMobile or AT&T, try and ask a friend who haven't used their unlock freebie in the last 90 days to request a code for your phone. Just tell them you're going out of the States very soon.

    There are several unlocking websites out there that can
    get you your unlocking code.
    They do charge, but you get support if there is a problem.
