Nokia 150 NUC Code NOT Working

1: Seeker
Hi I bought a Nokia 150 about a month ago and have received an unlock code yesterday. However, when I insert a different SIM, it says SIM1 Invalid and then shuts down. Also, if I remove the vodafone SIM and type in #PW+20DIGITCODE+1# it just says code error.

@pcheong Thanks for getting in touch, I'm sorry to hear your having trouble using your NUC. Have you tried the following instructions to get your Nokia unlocked: 

1. Turn on the phone without any SIM
2. Enter the following sequence (#pw+NUC+1#) on your Nokia 150 just like a phone number
3. Press # at the end to confirm the code
4. Message "SIM restriction OFF" should appear


To generate the P you must press the star key quickly 3 times.

To generate the W you must press the star key quickly 4 times.

To generate the + you must press the star key quickly 2 times.

Unlock codes are 15 digits long.

For example if your NUC is: 987654321012345 you would enter: #pw+987654321012345+1#


Let us know if this help, if not feel free to pop back to us and we'll be happy to investigate further 😊
