Nokia 5230 UnlockedAn unlocked Nokia 5230 will work on any phone network. Unlocking a Nokia 5230 with an unlock code only takes a few steps. This Nokia unlock guide contains free instructions to unlock your Nokia 5230 as well as some methods to get a free unlock code. Let’s get started!

All GSM or SIM based Nokia 5230 phone’s come with a SIM lock be default that prevents them from being used with other phone carriers. The instructions in this article will remove that SIM lock. However, in order to use these instructions you will need an unlock code for your 5230. Fortunately, many phone carrier’s such as AT&T as well as T-Mobile will give you a free unlock code if you call up their support line and request one. In exchange they will request your Nokia 5230′s IMEI number which you can attain by typing *#06# on your phone. Once you have your free unlock code you can use the following steps to get your very own Nokia 5230 unlocked!

How To Unlock Nokia 5230

1. Power on your Nokia 5230
2. Type #PW+UNLOCKCODE+1# (Where UNLOCKCODE is your unlock code you acquired earlier)
3. Your Nokia 5230 phone should say “SIM Restriction Off”

How To Get An Unlock Code

Getting a free unlock code by requesting it from the carrier may not always work. Alternatively, I recomend trying to find your code by using an instant unlock site or service.
