How do I use my PIN to unlock my phone?

I have requested an unlock code for my Nokia 130. I have had a text from EE giving a 6 digit code but does not say what to do with it. Please can anybody help? Thanks.

We got a long number which had a forward slash in it and could not get this when the sim was taken out. This code didn't come from ee we got it from an unlock code site.

Do I keep SIM card in or take it out before entering the 6 digit PIN to unlock my Nokia 130?

Hello Chris. Do I keep SIM card in or take it out and do I need to enter hash tag pw+ etc? Thanks.

You will need to first insert a different network SIM though to display the unlock entry field.

 

Once you enter a different none-EE SIM card and then restart the handset, it should then prompt you for the unlock PIN which EE have supplied you with.

You said six digits then this is not unlock code this is a puk code.

You need to request phone unlock code not sim puk code, 

Phone unlock code different than puk code and it more than 10 digits 

Many Thanks

OK 

Turn your handset on with no SIM card in......

 

1) Press the # key

2) Press the * key 3 times – this will produce a ‘p’

3) Press the * key 4 times – this will produce a ‘w’

4) Press the * key twice – this will produce a ‘+’

5) Enter in: unlock code that you got

6) Press the * key twice – this will produce a ‘+’

7) Press number 1

😎 Press the # key

9)  “SIM Restriction Off” or “Phone Restriction OFF” should briefly appear on the screen and the handset will re-set itself

 

Your handset should now be successfully unlocked.

.......but I believe the 6 digit number is not what I want. Is that right? Thanks
