Hello,

I recently got a Nokia 6500 Classic which seems to be locked with O2 and I have been a Pay Monthly customer with them for 2 years now, can I get an unlock code FREE of charge for this mobile? I never knew O2 locks its handsets, hmm atleast this one had it.

Last time I called them, they said £30 for Unlock IMEI Code & 1 month (minimum) wait. I seriously don't have a clue why they would take so long and charge so much. Anyone had anyway to get the IMEI Unlock Code free of charge or atleast cheaper elsewhere?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! Cheers

A quick search on google says that there are many websites that will ask you for IMEI code and model number off the phone.

For about £2.99

Already tried this, doesn't work.. 3+ tries and your phone is locked forever (need to reflash). And btw, that works only with Nokia 6500 not with classic version. Cheers

Nokia 6500 Classic on O2! Not Nokia 6500 (another model). :oops:

You only have 3 attempts to enter the code after that you will have to use another method to unlock the handset, there have been new developments in unlocking these in just the last 2 weeks, previously it was only DM3 that could unlock these, however now the new methods can unlock most of these directly so most decent shops should be able to unlock it for you for about £15 :) usual DM3 team unlock used to be about £25 and only available a few times a week.

Think your going to have to go down the 02 route if its a special edition or find an unlocking kit if it exists and sell straight on once your finished.

Jaf, MT Box and most Nokia equipment as long as its activated for BB5+ will be able to unlock it for you, however this isnt cheap equipment... Definately not a £20 bit of kit you can just sell on once your finished :) as I said try a decent local phone shop

Its the first Ive heard of o2 sim-locking a pay monthly handset. :(
Have you had it too long to return it and "re"upgrade and get a different 6500?
Otherwise advice above from MobilePhonez is correct

It's not a pay monthly handset, I am on Pay Monthly contract but I got this as a Pay As You Go phone as a replacement for my old phone.
