    Any market stall and/or car boot sale, plus lots of companies advertise this
    service for a fee.

    you will need to enter the Orange (or other) code in manually rather then
    from the droplist.

    But stay away from these "remote unlockers" where they give
    you a code (either for free or for a charge). They send you
    a code based on your phone's IMEI.

    These *can* work, but you still get a list of codes, and have
    to "just know" which one will work and, of course, if the code
    is wrong, you lose (one 'o') one of your attempts at entering the
    code. (Don't know what the limit is)

    Much better to go to a CBS or whatever, and pay the 10.00.

    You can do it for free very easily. If you searched this newsgroup
    before you posted you would have seen a post I made on the very
    subject only a few days ago (not the same phone but it will probably
    work)

    Yes, as they should.

    > These *can* work,


    No, they *do* work if the correct information is entered into the
    calculator.

    > but you still get a list of codes, and have

    Yes, and? If people don't know how to use the calculator or the codes
    provided, them they can always ask. Code 7 is a good place to start, but
    code 5 should suffice for most handsets.

    >of course, if the code
    >is wrong, you lose (one 'o') one of your attempts at entering the
    >code.


    So provide the calculator with the right information to start with.

    > (Don't know what the limit is)


    Why am I not surprised? You get five attempts before you need to resort to
    having it unlocked using a cable method.

    >Much better to go to a CBS or whatever, and pay the 10.00.


    Much cheaper to use the free calculators, and if you're daft enough to screw
    it up you can go and pay the £10.

    Did it first time yesterday, took me all of 30 sec., just making sure to
    enter the network code manually,
    tap in code No. 7 as suggested, phone says 'restriction lifted', bingo !

    Has anyone got some sort of tutorial on how to use trycktill and similar
    unlockers ?

    Whenever I see someone giving an unlock code to someone else, it's always
    qualified with things such as "in this case, you need to try the 6-code",
    "in this case, enter xxxxx rather than the usual yyyyy boxserial", "you
    can't unlock a Nokia zzzz if the software version is between m.mm and n.nn"
    or whatever.

    There seem to be so many exceptions as to make unlocking-by-code very
    much hit-and-miss. This is OK if you're doing it all the time and have
    sufficient experience and/or a cable unlocker on which to fall-back but,
    if your aren't, it isn't.

    ..

    What's the deal with these "dial 09... and get your phone unlocked" numbers ?
    My experience with these services is that (a) they ask for only three bits of
    information: IMEI;model; network, (b) they only give one or two codes,
    not seven, (c) the given codes always result in "code error"

    How do they manage to provide more specific unlock codes with less information ?

    There is sufficient info on the trycktill site, they advise to use code 1 or
    7.
    I used seven, it worked.
    Since you have 5 tries, you can easily try 3 or 4 times.

    Martin

    I understand that bit, but where is one supposed to get the "boxserial"
    from. Some people claim you have to have the new SIM in, some say
    you need no SIM. How do you find out which ASIC you have etc ?

    In my experience, these unlock-by-code sites have NEVER worked for me,
    in about 16 attempts (different handsets) over 2 years. If the codes
    are free, this isn't a problem, because I can just pay 10£ at a CBS
    anyway, so nothing lost. If, however, I use one of these 1.50£/minute
    services, there's no come-back if it fails to unlock which, in my
    case, it always has.

    So, what am I doing wrong ?

    I've done a number of phones, for myself and for others, and have not yet
    had a failure with the free codes (the first one was a bit confusing,
    though, but turned out fine in the end). Perhaps you're not entering the
    numbers, 'p's, 'w's, '+'s or # marks _exactly_ as you should?

    I am entering the p w = + characters correctly. I've tried it
    many times and always the result is failure.

    I just used the default one. IIRC it says to try different one if not
    successful...
