    I am about to buy a 3410(they have very good reviews) so I thought
    about doing a bit of reading on how to get them unlocked as I will be
    travelling to India soon and want to use a locally bought sim.
    After visiting

    http://www.unlockme.co.uk/dct3unlocking.html

    I was left a bit confused.

    The tutorial says that without a data cable, you must pay for the
    unlock codes but then goes on to state that to unlock the phones you
    need a cable.
    "If you want to unlock a DCT3 Nokia WITHOUT a cable you must pay for
    an unlock code", "To Unlock theses phones yourself you must use a
    data cable"

    So do you need a cable or not? If I paid for a dct3 code then can I
    input these via the mobile keypad just like for a dct4 phone
    or would I need a cable and software such as Nokia Tools by Rollis as
    suggested by the tutorial?

    Btw, I've seen a few posts in here mention clips and eeprom tools, are
    these software like Nokia Tools that can be used to unlock dct3
    mobiles?

    Re: dct3 phones: Are cables absolutely neccessary?

    Your options for unlocking a DCT-3 Phone are:

    a) Pay your service provider for the code
    b) Buy a cable and unlock it yourself using epprom Tools software
    c) Send your phone to an unlocker to be unlocked (see adverts in
    uk.adverts.telecom.mobile)
    d) Pay an unlocker for the code (see adverts in uk.adverts.telecom.mobile)

    (note: it's only very recently that anyone other than your service provider
    has been able to calculate the unlock codes for DCT-3 phones).

    Hope that clears things up a bit for you.

    Almost...
    in option b) is eepprom Tools the actual name of the software or does
    it only describe what the software does. I need to know so that when
    searching for it it would be a lot easier if the name was 'epprom
    tools' (less hits on google to go through)
    and option d) after obtaining the code, is it entered into the phone
    the same was as for dct4 phones, ie, by pressing the * key etc.

    one of the tools that does the job using an mbus cable is called NokTool or
    nokia tool ( think upto version 1.8 or 1.9 )
    and can be grabbed from almost any gsm site
    http://www.unlockme.co.uk/downloads.html or
    www.digital-forums.org.uk or
    www.all-forums.co.uk or
    http://www.gsmschwantz.com/page.htm

    for example but there are many, many more.
    only takes a few seconds to reset the SP locks and then job done, phone
    unlocked.
    Just be a bit carefull as one of the things that can happen with this
    software is its Very Very easy to change the IMEI number of your phone.. (
    make sure the Change IMEI box is unticked and you don't press Change IMEI by
    mistake)

    Hope that helps ya a bit..

    Ok, i'm a fool. What I meant to put was EEProm Tools, which is the name of
    the software. Version 3.1 is generally considered the best.

    And yes, if you get the code from your SP or an Unlocker it is entered via
    the keypad just like DCT4 phones.

    Sorry for the error in the name of the software; if your still having
    trouble locating it just post again and I'll email it to you.
