How To Unlock a Nokia N95 8GB From Vodafone
To free a Nokia N95 8GB from the Vodafone network you will need a Network Unlock Code – in this article we will look at how to unlock a Nokia N95 8GB mobile phone from Vodafone.
First off, you will need to obtain the IMEI Number (International Mobile Equipment Identity), from your phone, by entering the sequence *#06# into your phone which will return a (probably 15 digit) serial number – this is your IMEI Number.
Next, you will need to head over to the Vodafone NUC (Network Unlock Code) request form, fill out the relevant fields, and submit the application – there is usually no charge if you bought the phone from Vodafone. Within a few moments you should receive a confirmation email saying “We’ve received your Email and will be contacting you within 24 hours.”.
Vodafone will send a network unlock code, to the email address you provided, which you will need to use to unlock your handset. The sequence you will need to enter into your phone will be:
Where “code” is the network unlock code sent to you from Vodafone. To get the "+" character press the * (asterisk) button twice quickly, to get "p" press the * button three times and to get "w" press the * button four times.
The handset should then display the message "Sim restriction off" just before switching itself off and on and it should now be unlocked when you put your new network SIM inside. In my experience it took around one hour to receive the unlock code which is pretty amazing service considering the phone has been out of contract for quite some time.
