Unlock the T-Mobile Nokia Astound
Coming soon to T-Mobile: Nokia Astound. Current specs on the Astound show it’s going to work on the GSM 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 bands making it an ideal candidate to unlock. Unlocking the T-Mobile Nokia Astound will allow you to use almost any SIM or carrier in the US and across the world. T-Mobile will sim lock the phone to their network, so you’ll want to contact them for your unlock code. Contacting the carrier the device is locked to is always the easiest way to get your unlock code. Unfortunately many carriers are reluctant to give you the unlock code unless your account is in good standing and you tell them you’re going over seas or give them another reason that you need to unlock your device.
To unlock the Astound you’ll need to get your code from T-Mobile or a source for unlock codes on the net like UnlockCellPhoneCode.com. Your unlock code will be specific to your phone and your phones IMEI. You can get the IMEI of your device by typing *#06# on your Astound keypad. You will need to give your IMEI to T-Mobile or to an unlock service in order to get your IMEI unlock code. Once you have your code you’ll need to know how to enter it and lift the sim lock T-Mobile placed on your phone.
