    Aloha dudes and duddettes,

    I just bought this AT & T Nokia 6820B cell phone from ebay and now I found out that it used to be a mMode phone. I'm with the same company so I figured when I switched out the sim card it would work like a charm. WRONG!
    So I thought phone was locked so I went on line and paid for the unlocking and here is what they gave me:

    #pw+928632545626455+1#

    My IMEI is: 352968000921850

    I typed it in and it didn't work. What am I doing wrong? Is there a difference between a locked phone and a restricted phone? When I first turn the cell on it says Phone restricted and to undo it I would have to press the "enter" button I guess. Then it takes me to a screen that asks me to "Enter restriction code:" Thats where I put in that unlock code above with no results.

    Please anyone help me.

    Mahalo and thank you in advance,
    Scotty

    1. Take the SIM out of the phone
    2. Turn the phone on and enter #pw+918452545626455+1# (note: this code is different from the one you got).
    3. The phone should be unlocked

    Use the * key to cycle through *, +, p, w by pressing it rapidly multiple times. Be very careful when entering the code, don't make any mistakes. If the code doesn't work, please post back and we'll try to troubleshoot it further.

    Brother dmapr,

    Sorry bro but I bought this from ebay too with several codes:

    #pw+918452545626455+1#
    #pw+716250646454154+2#
    #pw+739920167711723+3#
    #pw+325106254313206+4#
    #pw+478957204631351+5#
    #pw+345316072355015+6#
    #pw+025973353371472+7#

    The first is the same as yours and I've tried it with no positive results. Its just says "error".

    I apologize for being a hassle but I really want to use this phone. Texting my gurl is a must and we all know that time is of essence when texting your other half.

    So far I've spend about $40 more for the phone on account that I thought the phone was "unlocked".

    Help me please!!! I live in Honolulu, Hawaii and if your coming this way I would be happy to show you how the locals party!!

    Mahalos,
    Scotty

    I hate to say, but if you tried all of those listed codes without success, your phone is now hard locked. You only get 5 opportunities to code unlock the phone - after which it can only be unlocked with the proper (not readily available) hardware. :crying:

    Thanks for the info my friend..... Is there any way that it could be fixed? Maybe send it off to someone?

    San Fran, huh? I'm planning on working in the ERs up in Kaiser.

    Aloha,
    Scotty

    There's a place in Boston called iunlock.com that can do it, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a local shop where you live.
