    I just purchased a Nokia 3590 Go Phone from AT&T. I unlocked it just to see
    if I could do it. I succeeded. But now I've decided to return the phone.
    Is there a way to relock it so that they don't give me any static when I
    return it?

    Thanks for your help.

    Use the same code you used to unlock it but use *pw+......... instead of
    #pw+..........

    Re: Is there a way to relock a Nokia 3590?

    Hi John,

    I tried *pw+ twice and got the message: "Restriction Level Incorrect" both
    times. Do I also need to use the suffix +7* instead of +7# ? How many
    times can I attempt this before the phone will need to be flashed?

    Thanks for your help.

    Could you be tring to lock it with a SIM card in that would be blocked by
    the lock? (i.e. another network than the one you are locking to)

    either way I can see no reason for the company complaining that you unlocked
    it - what next? will they complain that the time and date set in the handset
    has deviated from the factory standard? or that there are phone numbers
    stored in it?

    key words below are you 'purchased' it. that means its yours do do with as
    you please, the return is subject to it being intact, and complete - if you
    take a car for a test drive do they complain that the seat has been moved
    back?

    Hi Martin,

    Please excuse my ignorance. I don't understand what you mean when you say
    "Could you be tring to lock it with a SIM card in that would be blocked by
    the lock? (i.e. another network than the one you are locking to)". The
    phone is unlocked. So how could it be blocked by the lock?

    Thanks for your time.

    Who cares. All AT&T is gonna do is see if the phone is in working
    order and if there are any damages.

    Why dont you do something productive, everyone else can its not a big
    accomplishment, its not like you climbed MT Everest
    get a puzzle or a model, that would be a bigger one than unlocking a
    phone, its really hard to enter a code into a phone, lame ass

    If someone gave you a code, would you believe its validity? Or would you
    test it to confirm?

    Take your negativity some place else. It's not welcome here.

    Type exactly the same code you used to unlock it, substituting the #pw for
    *pw.
    The last # remains the same. I played with this before and it worked...
    BWinlock can tell you the status of the lock tries too - if have a cable...

    If no joy, no idea... This should relock to the number programmed into the
    phone, in your case AT&T

    Advanced...
    If you unlock the phone via cable (I know you didn't) it would reset the
    AT&T code to 00101 so then you no longer can use a code to relock the phone
    as the AT&T code is no longer what it should be and 00101 cannot be
    locked...

    I am guessing 'Restriction Level Incorrect' indicates you are say locking
    lock 7 when you used 5 originally say. It can only put back what you done
    originally maybe. Ie Lock 1 only does one lock, Lock 2 only lock 2 whereas
    Lock 5 does 1 and 2.
    so say if unlocked with 5, lock one may therefore fail when you relock...

    The stores do not check to see if the phone is unlocked (and wouldn't care
    anyway). You will have no trouble returning the phone.

    Hi Mole,

    Thanks for the info.

    What do you mean that lock 5 does 1 and 2? Is there a writeup on what
    locks, blocks, cables hookups etc are about? I'm a newbie with this.

    Thanks again.
