    Hi,

    I've used the NokiaFREE Unlock Codes Calculator v3.10 to unlock my old Nokia
    5130 (Type NSK-1NX) successfully (I think!) that was locked to Orange
    originally.

    However, it wont make any calls with a Vodafone SIM card in it, stating that
    there is "No Network Coverage" and shows no signal, despite being able to
    access all of the phone numbers stored on the SIM card. Before I unlocked
    it, the phone wouldn't accept the Vodofone SIM card at all., saying "SIM
    card invalid".

    I have successfully unlocked other Nokia phones with no problem and the
    Vodafone SIM card works fine, but for some reason it wont work in this
    particular Nokia 5130.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Andy

    o.k. turn your phone off. remove your sim card. enter #pw+1234567890+1 # if you see "SIM NOT RESTRICTED" it means the phone is unlock. unlocking is not the problem your phone . but if you see something else send me "PM" with the imei # and service provider, country and i'll send you right code for that phone. try to clean d sim card with a cotton ball with right amount of rubbing alcohol and wipe it with dry cotton ball right away. clean the 6 copper that touching the sim card with rubbing alcohol too and dry it up right away. let see if this will works.

    Andy,
    Find out what the frequencies are for the Nokia 5130, and make sure at
    least one of them matches up with the ones Vodafone uses. If not, your
    phone is not compatible with the Vodaphone service due to mismatched
    frequencies. If the frequencies do match up and there is still a problem, I
    would contact Vodafone.

    Hi,

    Yeah, eggster2k was right. The Nokia 5130 doesnt do gsm 900 (which is what
    Vodafone and also O2 network providers use), only gsm 1800.

    Thanks to everyone that replied!
