Nokia BB5 Code Error Problem Help

A lot of Nokia BB5 models require that you force the code to unlock it.
We are noticing this error problem more and more with newer Nokia BB5 phones, even if no attempts have been used on the phone.
Also, if your Nokia phone has had too many wrong attempts (3 + Attempts) using wrong unlock code from unreliable source, then your phone will display one of the following: "Not Allowed" or "Cannot undo restriction". If you have this problem, then use the force code method below

How To Force Nokia BB5 Code

Please follow these steps?

1. Download this program SendCodeUsb.exe (Don't run it just yet.)
2. Download and Install the latest Nokia PC Suite (This installs the phone drivers)
3. Connect your phone to the PC and select PC Suite on your phone screen, then wait for all the drivers to install.
4. Run the 'SendCodeUsb.exe' program.
5. Click the 'Read Phone Info' button to check the connection, you will also see some info about your phone.
6. Tick the 'Check for FBus' option.
7. Enter the unlocking code supplied into the 'Unlock Code (15 digits)' box. NOTE: only enter the middle numbers part
EG if your code is #pw+418636523456123+1#, then just enter 418636523456123
8. Next, select the Lock 'Level (1-7)'. this should be set at 1.
9. Finally Click the 'Send Unlock Code' button to send the code to the phone and unlock it.

Also Note: Some newer Nokia models like X3-02 and others cannot have their code forced by the software in the video above.
So you need to reset the key counter back to zero first using this alternative Nokia Key Counter Reset Software, then enter your code manually via the phones keypad in the normal way


Nokia DCT4 Models (Older phones)

1. Turn on your phone without a SIM Card in it
2. Enter the unlocking code # p w + YOUR_CODE_HERE + 1 #
3. The phone will now unlock.

Note: Use the codes ending with either +1#, +7# or even +5#.


Models : Nokia DCT3 (Oldest)

1. Turn on your phone without a SIM Card in it
2. Enter the unlocking code # p w + YOUR_CODE_HERE + 1 #
3. The phone will now unlock.

Note: Use the codes ending with either +1# or +2# only.

If the above method fails try inserting a locked SIM (IE one that the phone will not accept) and try the unlock code again.


Problems with code supplied?

Firstly Double check the code you ordered by comparing the IMEI submitted with the one on your phone (Type *#06#) if it is different. Also double check that you requested the correct network that the phone is currently locked to.
