Nokia N8 unlocked will work on all GSM carriers. The Nokia N8 requires an unlock code when unlocking the new cell phone. By default all Nokia phones that use a SIM card are GSM based phones and therefore come with a SIM lock that prevents them from working with “unaccepted” networks. If you want to use your phone on any different networks such as switching from AT&T to T-Mobile, then you will need to unlock your Nokia N8.
First you will need to get an unlock code for your Nokia N8 as stated earlier. To do this, you can try calling up your phone carrier’s support line and requesting one. In exchange, they will request your Nokia N8′s IMEI number, which you can get by typing in *#06# and hitting enter. IF they will not provide you with a free unlocking code, then you may need to pay a small fee for one. I would recommend checking out some of the unlock code websites I posted beneath this article. Once you have your unlocking code, you are ready to begin and can follow the steps below:
How To Unlock Nokia N8
1. Power on your Nokia cell phone with an unaccepted SIM card in (or sometimes no SIM card at all works).
2. Type #PW+Unlock Code+1 (Where Unlock Code is your 8-digit Nokia unlock code)
3. Now verify your Nokia unlock code was typed correctly
4. Finish by typing #
5. If worked phone should say “SIM Restriction Off”
