    Hello All, i have a question

    I bought this cellie when i was overseas in Nairobi (Kenya, Africa) , i had a sim card for it for safaricom that i had purchased from the airport. However since im back in the states i cant use the phone with the previous sim, i bought another sim card for the phone, but it keeps giving me SIM REJECTED. Can i even use another sim with this phone or am i doom'd with a phone that i can never use?

    thanks

    Hi!

    You can unlock it for free. You can use this to calculate the unlock codes:

    http://www.lur.nu/unlock/nokia_eng.php

    Just follow the instructions step by step.

    But be careful, you only got 5 tries. After that you need to leave the phone to a unlock shop to get it unlocked.

    thanks

    I just tried 3 of the codes, and they didnt work. They dont have kenya listed on most unlocking websites.

    Sorry if this question seems a bit silly, but where are unlock shops usually located, like just random ppl?

    thanks.

    Where i live, there is unlock shops all over. They take maybe 50 $ for it. You could just walk in to the nearest cell phone distributer and ask

    What is the operator name in Kenya that the phone is locked to?

    Ok, i have found the network code for Kenya - Safaricom. I have added it to the list on the generator link above so now you should be able to unlock your phone.

    If you need help, PM me with your IMEI.
