Nokia X6 cant be unlocked for free

 

It can either be unlocked via your network operator or needs to be sent off to a company called DM3 for unlocking - This is the same with all the new Nokia mobile phones because they are running the new software with a lot of security and encryption so this way they make more money when it is sold on one network

No worries, some third party companies sell unlocking codes too but might charge more then the current network that it is locked onto !

 

The best thing to do is call the current network operator and just say i'm going on holiday and I need to use a sim abroad so I need my phone unlocked and 90% of the time they do it charging you a small fee :smileyhappy:

update....

unlocked it with a sim unlock device (the super thin type that sits between the sim and the phone) it was a bit tricky as the sim slides into a slot on the side of the phone (i slid the thin device in first then the sim, sorted)

cost about £3 :smileyhappy:
