I have the unlock code. How do I unlock my phone?

If you see: SIM network unlock PIN or Enter Network Lock Control Key screen

  • Type your unique Network unlock code (NCK).
  • Click Unlock.
  • If you get a message saying Unsuccessful, it means there have been too many failed attempts to enter the unlock code.
  • If this happens, full reset your phone by typing *2767*3855# and wait until the phone has restarted (all data will be erased).
  • Type your unique Unfreeze code (MCK) into the SIM network unlock PIN screen.
  • You will get another message saying Unsuccessful, but don’t worry—this is fine.
  • Now type your unique Network unlock code (NCK) and click Unlock.
