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
