Learning how to unlock a Nokia 500 only takes couple minutes of your time. We have provided the easy to follow steps below to guide you through unlocking your Nokia 500 cell phone. These instructions will only work with a GSM or SIM card version of this smartphone and as far as were aware this is the only version of this device that has been released. You can however, easily check to ensure that your Nokia 500 is GSM based.
You can either take your battery out and look for a SIM card by it, or you can enter *#06# on your dial pad and an IMEI number should appear. If neither of those two methods work for you, then it is possible you have a CDMA version of the Nokia 500.
In order to fully unlock your Nokia 500 you will need to an unlock code.
Getting an unlock code can be free often if you cann up your Nokia 500 phone carrier's support line. Request an unlock code and in exchange they will need your phone's IMEI number, which on a Nokia 500 you can simply get by typing *#06# and hitting send or enter on your keypad. Your Nokia 500's IMEI number is used to calculate your Nokia unlocking code. If you do not currently have a carrier or cannot get a free one, then I would suggest you review some of the unlock code websites I have provided later in this guide.
