    Hi all,

    I bought a Nokia 2280 from Telstra (Australia). I want to setup NAM2
    (Telstra only use NAM1 and leave 2 deactivated) to use Verizon Wireless
    so I can use the phone in both the US and Australia.

    Telstra are positive they don't lock their phones at all, but there's
    definitely a Service Provider Code (SPC) stopping me from modifying NAM
    settings. Telstra's support have no idea what I'm on about, say they
    don't have the code and point me to Nokia to get it. On the flip-side,
    Nokia say it's something the telco set and they don't have it.

    Anyone got any ideas/pointers on where I can go from here to get the
    SPC?

    PD

    Yes, that is certainly something that Telstra would need to provide. But it
    certainly makes sense for the Telstra people you've talked with to be
    ignorant on the issue. There is some calculator within Telstra that some IT
    person has access to that will provide that code, now the truly hard part is
    getting through to that person and convincing them to calculate and give you
    that code.

    Good luck,

    -julie

    Thanks Julie. I somehow got lucky and got someone who found that person.
    They've given me the SPC, A-Key and MIN.

    "NAM (Number Assignment Module) a circuit chip located inside a phone
    which stores your telephone number, lock code, timer reset code,
    network information and other operational data. The NAM is programmed
    by the service provider when a device is activated. Today's phones
    have EPROM type NAM and are keypad programmable."

    NAM1 would likely be the primary line/number one would use and NAM2
    would be another line/other number.

    This only applies to TDMA (IS-136) and CDMA (IS-95) handsets. It does
    not apply to GSM.
