Sorry for another unlock question but I've done lots of searching and can't find a definite answer.

My son bought a Nokia 6630 off fleabay. It is locked to the Orange network.
He wants to use it on 3.
Can this phone be unlocked to use on 3?

I guess he should have read the item description more carefully!!!:doh:

Thanks for the quick reply.

In all the searching I have done I think this phone is a BB5. Maybe it can only be done by the service provider, Orange, but as he has only just bought it I'm not sure they will give (sell) him the code.

It is BB5.
The only route to try is contact orange and say it was a pressie or something daft like that. You could also contact its previous owner and see if he will try and get the unlock code for you.
£20 up for the code.
Just remember though he, your Son, and yourself between you may have used up the 5 attempts to get the code right. In this case the code will be useless to you.

Ring orange tell them you want unlock code, then they will take £20 credit off your phone. If the unlock code doesnt work they will tell you to post the phone to them and you should get it back within 3 working days.

Thanks for the help guys.

We haven't tried any codes at all yet.

Turns out he also uses an Orange payg sim so won't be too much of a problem after all.
