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.

Step 1: Power off you Galaxy S4 and hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 5 seconds.

Step 2: When you see the warning screen, let go of all buttons then hit the Volume Up button to enter ODIN Download mode.

Step 3: Connect a micro-USB cable from your Galaxy S4 to your computer.

Step 4: Next, download CWM recovery for your Galaxy S4. ClockworkMod is currently available for GT-i9500, Sprint SPH-L720, and T-Mobile SGH-M919 models.
Also download ODIN, Samsung USB Drivers, and SuperSU Zip files.

Step 5: Unzip ODIN and run the odin3 v1.85.exe file by double-clicking on it.
If you see a yellow highlighted box like shown below, you are good to go, if not, double-click on the Samsung USB drivers EXE file you downloaded earlier and install drivers, then unplug/re-plug the micro-USB cable to your phone. You should see yellow highlighted box.
Next, choose PDA, then browse to the CWM recovery you downloaded earlier for your Galaxy S4. (It’s a file ending in .tar) Hit Start to begin flash CWM recovery to your phone.

Step 6: This will flash a custom CWM recovery to your Galaxy S4 and your phone will reboot.
If you see “PASS!” that means everything went successfully.

Step 7: Next, after your phone reboots, copy the SuperSU zip file you downloaded earlier to anywhere on your Galaxy S4.

Step 8: Power off your Galaxy S4 then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together.

Step 9: When you see the Samsung logo, keep holding down Volume Up and Center Home buttons but let go of the Power button.

Step 11: Choose “choose zip from sdcard” and hit the Power button.

Step 12: Choose “0/” directory and hit the Power button.

Step 13: Browse and find the SuperSU zip file you copied over earlier and hit the Power button.

Step 14: Choose “Yes” and hit the Power button.

Step 15: This will install su binaries and SuperSU superuser app on your phone. This essentially “roots” your Galaxy S4.

Step 16: Go back to main menu and choose “reboot system now”, then hit Power button. Your Galaxy S4 will reboot.

Step 17: Once rebooted, you should find SuperSU app in your app drawer.

Step 18: Run the SuperSU app once and update the binaries.

Step 19: You can verify you have full root by downloading and opening rooted app like Titanium Backup app (which I highly recommend for backing up/freezing/un-installing your apps).
You should see a Superuser request window pop-up!
