Hi, had my Nokia 6220 Classsic unlocked at a shop, which i was told was a pretty hard thing to do because not many people have the equipment, so anyway some guy with this specialist equipment comes round once a week to unlock certain phones and after the shop had the phone for around 5 days i eventually got it back unlocked.

Its running on the old firmware though and i was gonna update it using the Nokia Software updater.

If i install the new firmware, will my phone be re-locked to the Orange network again?

I dont wanna have to spend £25 getting it unlocked again?

its usually £10 but because this phone is supposidly hard to unlock for whatever reason, some guy with specialist equipment had to do it.

I tried a few shops and they all said the same thing

So, you 100% sure its safe for me to update it?

Can the branding be removed easily without fear of breaking the phone?

Hi mate, please check your PM :)

Using Nokia Software Updater will not change the locks, so you are safe, however please check your PM about debranding the phone... :) hope it helps :) We normally always debrand these for customers after unlocking unless the customer doesnt want it done...

And £25 is the usual price for these to be unlocked, it was the DM3 team that unlocked your phone for you :)
