    I was sent a email to a site where you can input your IMEI number and the network (carrier) that it's currently locked to and get your unlock code for free. I did it and it worked for both my 3120 and 6010 that were locked to AT&T Wireless. I was able to unlock my phones and I now can use them with my Cingular SIM. You can either do this on the site or you can download a free program that does it also. The link to the site is below.

    If I remember correctly, it's additional locks to be unlocked that may be present in the phone. However, I did not have to worry about them and I don't think most people will either. I downloaded the free program and used that instead. It worked.

    GID1 is the network lock and GID2 is the provider lock. You should never need those since the #1 or #7 code should unlock all settings. Only exeption being Tmob, from what I've heard the WAP and MMS settings can only be unlocked by flashing the firmware. Voice and SMS will unlock normally.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Your welcome :)

    Just to add, I cannot confirm the hard lock status of WAP and MMS on Tmob phones. It's just what I've been told. ;) As soon as I get my hands on my friends old Tmob 3595 I'm gonna find out. ;)

    Have a great day! :)

    The free unlocker you can download is also usable for other brands like Samsung, LG, Panasonic..., but no Moto.

    For the Nokias, you get 7 codes, where #7 is the Master Lock. For my 6230 I used Dct4, and asic 6 to be the GEN. I cross checked the codes with online calculator and they matched. My phone said "restriction off" as soon as I finished entering all the nos. from code 7

    For Moto, you need to use a program like the Motorola Service Software app. It allows you to change a few other things but I'm not about to post them here. But it does allow you to unlock certain Motos by cable.

    I purchased and unlocked a T-Mob 6010 from Wal-Mart for $40. A "ToGo" phone. If you want me to check onwhether selected items are unlocked; tell me what to look for and I'll check.

    I have a question. I have a Nokia 2260 and I typed in the *#06# code into the keypad to get the IMEI number. Nothing happened. I then hit "send" and it said it couldn't reach that number. Is there something else I should be doing here? I'd appreciate any help I could get. Thanks.

    The 2260 is an amps/TDMA phone and I don't think that is the right code for it.

    On Howard Forums(HoFo) this was posted:
    Programming for TDMA

    *3001#12345#

    NAM
    Security
    Emergency number(s)
    SW version
    Serial No. (ESN)
    Field Test


    I don't have a TDMA phone anymore so I can test it out for accuracy. If you want read the complete thread please go here

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, great! That worked just like you said it would, giving me that list, starting with "NAM" and going through "Field Test". But does this mean I can't use the Nokia Unlocking Code Calculator on this phone? Or is one of the things on that list the IMEI number I'm supposed to put into the calculator? I tried putting in the Serial No. as the IMEI, but that didn't work.

    Actually the serial no. is the IMEI no. used for unlocking but here is the problem now that I realize what you are trying to do.

    As best I know TDMA phones are not network locked like GSM phones are. If you want to use a different provider then that provider would have to put the ESN into their system and use it that way. I believe that you can switch TDMA carriers without having the phone "unlocked". Unlocked doesn't really apply to a TDMA phone. The new provider just has to reprogram your phone for you.

    I hope that made some sense. Is that what you are trying to do, switch providers but keep the same phone?

    OK, I n00bie here would like to know how did you manage to unlock your Nokia 6010 through the Free Nokia Unlock site? I went to the site and the Nokia Model: did not have 6010 entry for DCT4 unlocker. What I would like to know is which Nokia model did you choose to unlock your Nokia 6010? I certainly will appreciate if you could elaborate here for a n00bie like. Thanks.

    The 6010 is basicly the same as the 3595. If the first code dosn't work using the 3595, I would email them to get the correct code. You only get three chances to unlock it.

    Go to this site, http://www.unlockme.co.uk/dct4free.html and on the left go to the forums, register & read the important information post on what information to post in the thread, then you can post up to 2 phones & within 24-48 hours someone will reply with the unlock codes.
    I did this with my 3595 & 6010 since I couldn't find them in the code generators either, I got both codes within a day & it's free.
    Once you get the correct codes, just do a reply to let them know they worked.
    I have had good luck with them on unlocking a few phones not listed in the generator's.

    You can also search the forums at nokiafree.org for the settings that will work with 6010 for their unlock programs. :)

    Okay Hi all.

    So I was thinking about unlocking my Nokia 3220b phone and I tried the nokia.org free unlocker. My mobile number isn't in there so I tried Asic 2 to be the GEN. I tried the one number it gave me...but it didn't work said code error. So I'm going to stop because I don't want to keep messing up my chances. Should I just take it in to T-mobile and ask them to unlock it ???? isn't t-mobile good about that??? thanks.

    Nope I didn't see that. I went here http://unlock.nokiafree.org/ and this is what it gave me back. It asked for GEN? I left it at New Griffen... perhaps should change it to Original?
    The first one didn't work...so I stopped....I keep seeing about 7 being the best one to use... that's why I said I should maybe take to t-mobile.???

    My downloaded version also gives the same results and #7 is the Master Code which unlocks all codes.

    T-Mobile is really good about giving out unlocking codes, however they require that you have been with them for atleast 90days.

    Hope this helps.

    Doesn't seem right to me or Charylee. You can download our verison at http://unlock.nokiafree.org/download.php (verison 3.1).

    I get for the 3220, Asic 2 V2 and 33820 You should have 5 tries to get it right.

    Maybe best to go to tmobile.

    If you have left T-Mobile then they will not help you and if it is originally a T-Mobile phone, then Cingular will not help you either.

    I am presuming you want the 6010 flashed to unbrand it.None of the providers will actually flash the phone for you, you have to go to an independent person. Personally I have never used one so I cannot give you any recommendations...sorry
