Vodafone from O2

Hi, quick question

Bought a new Nokia 6230i with O2 software, etc. I am on Vodafone, is there a way to reprogram the phone with the Vodafone software and relevant access numbers?

Cheers.
StuS.

Cool

You will have to ask the network your handset is on at the moment for the unlock code. This will normally be given when the contract is over or the subsidy recouped on a PAYG which is normally 3 months, and their will be an unlock code admin fee for you to pay.

After inputting this code the handset will be unlocked to all networks.

People have tried market traders to unlock but this 'frying' of the fone can end up in all kinds of issues including signal drop.

Vodafone software

Thanks for the reply...

Phone works fine with Vodafone SIM (unlocked ok?) but would like to remove the O2 signature software and have it running like a Vodafone phone.

Does that make sense?

Cool

Yes but when vodafone purchased it from nokia they would have introduced their own software.

You could book it into a nokia repair centre for it to be flashed although this might not remove it also.

If you want to use your Nokia 6230i from O2 to Vodafone, You need to unlock your mobile phone using unlock code. You can get the unlock code for your Nokia 6230i from Super Unlock Codes at low cost. Before that you can visit Mobile Unlock Guide . This site provides free unlocking instruction guide. This would help you understand unlocking process better.

once your contract has been set up, then you can not port the number. That means that, people must have to get PAC code from O2, before the sign up to a deal. After that people can setting up their deal and then they can get PAC code to the number.
