Nokia Codes

Included below are a number of control codes that work for most nokia phones together with an explanation of what they do. As I'm sure you would expect I accept absolutely no responsibility what so ever for any damage caused to your phone. That having been said, the codes with the symbol mean I have tried them with no problem and in my opinion they will not make any permanent changes to your phone. At the bottom I've added a few tips on using the predictive text messaging that you may find useful.

#pw+1234567890+1# Provider Lock Status. (use the "*" button to obtain the "p,w" and "+" symbols) This is the lock most often used.
#pw+1234567890+2# Network Lock Status. (use the "*" button to obtain the "p,w" and "+" symbols)
#pw+1234567890+3# Country Lock Status. (use the "*" button to obtain the "p,w" and "+" symbols)

*#746025625# *#sim0clock# Displays the Sim Clock status, if your phone supports this power saving feature "SIM Clock Stop Allowed", it means you will get the best standby time possible. No matter what anyone tells you this will not allow you to get free calls or text message. If your phone has this feature then it is already active.
Removes operator logo on 3310 & 3330, i suggest you don't do this if you shelled out to buy your operator logo in the first place. The only other way to remove an operator logo is to get another one sent to you.

Tips For Predictive Text Messaging: They're sort of in descending order of obviousness

  1. Holding down a number key will insert that number, this is quicker for short numbers that using insert number.

  2. Holding down '#' will put you into insert number mode, this is quicker for long numbers than accessing insert number function through the menu.

  3. Holding '*' will take you to insert symbol mode, this is quicker than accessing the function through the menu.

  4. In insert symbol mode the '#' can be used to move up between the rows.

  5. If a word is not in the dictionary entering it once under the 'Spell' function will add it to the dictionary.

  6. If a word is not in the dictionay it can often be easiest to brake the word up into it's components. For example I come from a place called Sutton Coldfield; Coldfield is not in the T9 dictionary but clearly 'cold' and 'field' are so the answer is to type 'cold' press the forward arrow and type 'field'

  7. The three most common mistakes are transposing the word 'he' for 'if,' 'of' for 'me' and 'in' for 'go.' This is not really a tip so much as a statement of fact. I guess the tip is just not to do it.
