Advice on unlocking a mobile phone needed.


I want to unlock my Nokia 2330 Classic from Orange in order to use different SIM cards while travelling abroad. Your help on this matter is welcome.

For some old Nokia phones you can download a small free prog that will give you the coded for free. I will have a look on Google to see if I can find one I have used in the past

Orange can also it over the network but may well charge more than local shop
Thanks for that info, Stuart.

What about the various adverts about codes for unlocking phones on the Internet? Are they genuine? or a scam? Anybody used any of them?

Talk to Orange, they come in for a heck of a bashing but they unlocked my Iphone over the air for 20 their only requirement was that I had had it for 3 months. a far safer risk than trying a code from someone you havn't and will not meet!

Also you could try a turbo sim have a look on ebay very cheap and fit between your chosen sim and the phone I have used one with success.
Thanks again Stuart. I'll look into the turbo sim possibility.
