Unlocking mobile phones

I recently got a second mobile phone, and wanted to swap sims between the two.

The phones I wanted to unlock were a Nokia 6021, and a Nokia 6070

My experience was
  • Get your IMEI code off your phone (type *#06# into the phone).
  • Figure out if you are DCT3 or DCT 4 and your phone type from this site
  • Goto this site Enter the details and get the code
  • Take out your sim and start phone without it.
  • Type in the bottom (7th) code from the list following the instructions from (Press * multiple times to get letters *, P, W +)


Of course there are risks.
This article gives a good synopsis of what to do and some exceptions that can occur

Good luck
