Nokia 6230i unlock procedure

I’ve recently acquired a nokia 6230i cellphone but it’s locked for my provider: amena… but hey, good news, I can unlock it for free :-) The reason of this post is twofold:

  • Give thanks to 3DES for his short but informative post about that matter ;-)
  • The procedure required to unlock nokia 6230i differs from what’s advised on the web: you have to keep your SIM inserted on the phone while executing the procedure, do not remove it beforehand !

Just wanted to document that issue that kept me trying and reading recipes for a while.

  1. Brainstorm is right with the SIM card. However this is valid for some Nokia 6230i only (software of the phone maybe different and provider dependent). Esp company / business phones where company has specific provider contract behave like this.

    Alex is right with the code link! Trust the russians ;-)

  2. I used the russian site ’cause the first didn’t work…..I did not put the sim card and the code worked! I’m unlocked! Thanks dude!
