Anyone know how to unlock a nokia 6110 navigator?
Is it illegal?
maybe this unlock sim could do it? its a generic unlock tool thats on my shopping list
Not when the contract that the phone was originally supplied with, has expired.
Basically, mobile phones tend to be heavily subsidised. The idea is that the "free" mobile that comes with the 12 to 18-month contract that you commit yourself to is effectively paid in installments through this contract. However sometimes the cost of the phone is recuperated over multiple contracts. Hence the phone is locked to the provider.
However generally once the contract is finished, you generally have paid for the phone and you can use it with any contract from any provider.
Thanks for the informative replys
Wow, that universal sim unlock card is really ahead of the market. Looks like i will have to be looking into one of those in the near future. Thanks for the replys. Cheers.
imo once you take out the contract youve commited to pay for the phone so it wouldnt matter if you unlocked it as your locked into paying for it one way or another, either by a fee for getting out of your contract early or by paying to the minimum term of your contract so the phone company wont care.
its prob just a breach of contract, I wouldnt call it illegal.
Closing this as it seems to just be a spam-trap.
