If you want to get the unlocking code for your Nokia 5230, we recommend you to contact to the original carrier, it is the unique possibility if you want to have your phone unlocked for free. The carrier will provide you with the unlocking code if you are the cell phone plan owner. When you have not obtained the unlock code because you do not fulfill the carrier requirements, you can prompt the unlocking on our website.
The fastest method to obtain the unlocking is ordering in our website, when other SIM cards are inserted, and your Nokia 5230 asks you for the code; you must fill out the questionnaire and in a few hours you will receive an email with the unlock instructions.
Nokia devices have between 5 and 10 attempts to dial the unlock code. If the code is many times incorrectly entered, your 5230 will be blocked and it will be necessary to repair it by software (this service has extra price). So we recommend you to do not manipulate your mobile phone and to do not exhaust the attempts.
No, once a Nokia is unlocked, it will be never relocked again, so you can update the firmware without any trouble.
Unlocking method is for any SIM card of Bell Mobility, Chat'r, DMTS, Fido, First, Globalstar, ICE Wireless, Freedom, MTS, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus Mobility, Videotron, Wind, Koodo, Solo Mobile, Virgin Mobile, Mobilicity from Canada and any other country.
When a 5230 does not reject your new SIM card but does not allow you to make calls, it is most likely that the IMEI has been blacklisted. You need to contact with the carrier to solve it.

No more attempts: Nokia phones usually have three chances to enter the unlock code, if you use these three attempts, the terminal will prompt Not allowed. It does not mean that the code does not work, but that the 3 exhausted. Fixing this is easy; simply click here and re-enter the unlock code.
