How to Unlock your Nokia E63 from Three

It only takes one call to your phone provider and you can have your phone unlocked and ready to be upgraded free to the newest firmware available for the Nokia E63. Today, I called up Three to get this done and they asked why I would like to unlock the phone. I said that I would be going overseas and they asked what country. I started to wonder, just let me unlock my phone.. then I realised he wanted to tell me that we can use three on international roaming. Nice to know... but I still want my phone unlocked. If they continue to ask, tell them that you may want to use a local SIM card and they will let you pass Go and collect your unlock key.

You will know that they are giving you the right code if they
1. Ask for your IMEI number by asking you to type in *#06#
2. They give you a code that looks something like #pw+23489729429834+1#
3. The phone will say "sim card restriction off"

Your phone is now unlocked and you can go to Nokia PC suite to get your firmware updated... but is the firmware worth updating to?


EDIT: I've just tried to upgrade my phone firmware and just like Pitz said in the comments, the upgrade didn't work even after unlocking the phone from Three. Oh Three.. what will we do with you...

Also there are plenty of companies around which unlock your phone for a fee.. have a look around.

    1. Just tried the above suggestion for my now out of contract E63. Three wanted to charge £15.32 for the unlock code. Told them no thanks even though I stayed with them out of loyalty, should have changed my provider when I upgraded last week.

  2. Unlocked mine, still seeing the firmware as not available.

  3. From my reading unlocked or not our phone remains a E63 NAM not a basic E63. To date this has not had a firmware update released for it. So despite my unlocking it, which is probably a good idea anyway it remains firmware 100.

  6. I spent agees on the phone to 3, i ran out of free minutes now I am £7 over spend, and they wanted me to pay £100 + £20 to unlock it then the £100 would be put on as credit, I am 5 months into my contract. How can I get them to just give me the code? Spent ages trying sort it, all I want to do is swap phones with my friend for a bit and he's on T-mobile.
    Any suggestions? (Tried turbo sim but I think they only work with 2G sim cards?!)

  13. to get the latest firmware you need to change the product code. This is known as debranding as it also removes the annoying screensavers after a firmware update.

    ReplyDelete
  19. No, UNLOCKING is perfectly legal unless of course you acquired the phone through stealing or your phone is stolen. :) Even then unlocking is legal, the stealing or receiving stolen goods is not.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @KH - you can get #pw+NUMBER+1# from your carrier or go to a website which offers unlocking services.

  47. is there anyway, i can reset my whole phone without entering a pin code and security code at the beginning when i turn it on? i stupidly changed my security code while i was half asleep and have completely forgotten the damn thing, and am locked out of my phone completely, like i can only turn it on and put in pin code, usually security code follows but i can't remember it anymore =( and want to reset my phone instead of sending it away to get fixed cos i have no back up phone. HELP PLEEEASE?!

    http://www.three.com.au/cs/Satellite?c=Page&cid=1236150837988&pagename=3CA%2FPage%2F3CAStatic
    The IMEI number can be found inside the case of the phone under the battery. Fill out the boxes and follow the instructions. You need another working sim card for this to work.
