Nokia was one of the longest-standing manufacturers of phones in the world, even before mobile phones were invented.
In the 1960s Nokia produced radio phones and in the 1980s they worked on car phones.
They also helped to pave the way for mobile phones today.
The Nokia Corporation is in fact was a Finnish corporation that operated in multinational communications.
They were based at their headquarters in Keilaniemi, Espoo, Finland, and their best known and best-selling products were mobile phones and other mobile communications devices.
Nokia also offered internet-based services including applications and games, music and media, maps, and messaging.
Nokia also had a joint project with Siemens called the Nokia Siemens Networks. This provided equipment and services in the area of telecommunications.
Nokia had held the title of the world’s largest mobile phone vendor from 1998 to 2012, but with competition like Apple, BlackBerry, and Samsung sneaked upon them, the title was soon be stolen from them.
Most Nokia phones were sold with a restriction code that stops the mobile from being used on other networks.
Nokia phones old and new all have one thing in common.
They have network restrictions placed on them, in order for the network service providers to be able to sell their phones to people at a very discounted price.
These restrictions prevent the phone from being used with a SIM card from any other network than the one it was originally purchased on.
But in this day and age, those restrictions no longer have to be so binding, as they can be easily reversed with the use of a restriction code, otherwise known as an unlock code.
To get your hands on a restriction code, the best place to start is by asking your network service provider.
If you have been a loyal customer of the network for quite some time now then the chances are they will offer you the code for free.
They may even offer to use the restriction code to unlock your Nokia handset for you in one of their stores.
If you haven’t been with the network for a long enough amount of time for them to give you the code, then you can always go through an independent mobile unlocking service.
These are usually found on the internet and offer restriction codes for a small fee to people who can’t obtain one from their network.
1. Remove the current SIM card and switch the phone on.
2. You should receive a message asking you to enter the restriction code.
3. Enter the exact characters of the restriction code you were given.
Once the code is accepted, your handset is unlocked!
