How do you flash a phone yourself?

For who is planning a trip to Italy next summer there's another option, here in Italy you can buy a 6630 at 249 € (165 ) or a 6680 at 349 € (235 ) brand TIM (but unlocked, and with about 300 € of 3G services included !), if you do a MNP from any other italian operator (you can buy and use a SIM card of Vodafone Italia, or Wind or 3 Italia, and then apply for the MNP to TIM).

I thought I'd add my 2p worth with my story of unlocking a 6630 on '3'

My 12 month contract came to an end on the 25th of May, and I wanted to
unlock my phone to use O2's pay as you go. I'd read about the 15 charge
to do this and off I went...

Phoned '3' customer services..."Try and find a local mobile unlocker", which i did
and was told "Ooh...6630...nah...go back to 3 for the code"

Local 3 shop, aftr a long saga, took my 15, and promised a code within the week.

Nothing happened, chased some more...

Ended up being told "6630's cant be unlocked, so heres you're 15 back"

Has took me days of phone calls, with the Indian call centre being absolutely
useless and no help whatsoever. I will actively rubbish '3' for as long as I
breathe, they are useless, lying scum of the lowest order.

Avoid going at all costs, you will be scammed at every opportunity!

6630

Here in Finland they atleast agree to unlock the phones when the contract is over. It would be illegal if they did refuse to do that. And yes, 6630 *can* be unlocked with the proper code.

Dejan apparently can unlock via USB but nobody knows for sure so until proof is actually saw about anything to unlock the BB5's then i would regard 99.99% - 100% of the stories as bull5hit.

Hopefully it wont be to much longer though

how did you flashed those phones? i really need to know, because i also have the same but locked '3'
thanks

You must ask the network that locked the phone for the unlocking code, flashing the phone with a new firmware doesn't remove the operator lock.

Angry Feel yer pain

I've been through hell and worse with 3.

Since I did not have a British credit card when I took the 3 connection, the chap at Carphone Warehouse told me to take a contract in the name of my British friend, and set a direct debit up in my name. He told me that i could use customer services as long as I provided them with my friend's name and date of birth

That was the biggest mistake I ever made!! The Customer service folks were Indian, and could tell from my Indian accent that I was definitely not an Andrew Bates born in Leicester (I even gave them the freakin post code!) , and have consistently refused to deal with me. For chrissake, how could a thief know all that detail!!!???

The same thing when I asked them to unlock the phone. My friend even tried sending them an e-mail (he couldn't call as he was not in Britain anymore) -- but those &^^()(&*&*& refuse to listen. So what do I have? An alarm clock I expended 400 on!

Thank you, 3!!!

Unhappy nokia6630 on three net work

Hi folks, i am gonna put an end to all quiery's about nokias 6630 that has been on 3's network..all 6630's on 3 have been programed to 3's spec by nokia ok! now if your with three and your contract is ending, then three, if you ask will sell you an unlock code for 15...ive done it myself..now heres the bad bit once your phone is unlocked you then for hearsay put your o2 sim card in and get the updates great your now on a roll,but only untill you make 2 or 3 calls and then wonder why your phone wont ring the number??? theres a conflict between 3's programming and the sim card your using..you see all networks work on whats called a GSM but not three they use a diffrent setup and this confliction between phone and sim CANNOT be resolved unless the phone's memory is totally wiped and so far nokia can only do it and you guessed rite they wont...so basicaly take the battery out of your phone and bin the rest cause thats the only good part of it now...i had two 6630's and they have gone to a charity shop its a shame cause the 6630 is an amasing phone but not after three's had there hands on it..sorry to have maybe down hearted some of you but theres no point in wasting money on a phone that nokia stopped making a year ago...best wishess to all..cheers daveybuc...

Answer for question 1 the dongles are already available on market.
Answer for question 2 you can unlock your 6630 yourself using unlock codes. You can get the unlock code for free from www.unlocking4free.com . Just submit your mobile IMEI number and get the free unlock code.
