These are the codes for Network 23430000 T-Mobile-One 2 One;United Kingdom. IMEI 355506016220177 To enter the code to the phone (switch on without SIM card).
Input the Code in the phone as follows:

#pw+??????????????+1#
#pw+??????????????+2#
#pw+??????????????+3#
#pw+??????????????+4#
#pw+??????????????+5#
#pw+??????????????+6#
#pw+??????????????+7#


Here: ?????????????? You should enter generated code.


First code in the end of the string must be added + 1#
Code number 7 in the end of the string must be added + 7#

If you have proper software and You know on which lock, phone
is closed just simply enter proper CODE.

If YOU DONT KNOW – which lock is closed do the following:

1. Enter the first code, if it’s the wrong code – WAIT 30 seconds!!! And then:
2. Enter the code number seven this will open all locks.

How to get ‘p’ ‘w’ ‘+’ signs?
Press
* several times on keyboard of phone...
Your code's are:

#pw+848261673654667+1#
#pw+297915320521512+2#
#pw+923532253127736+3#
#pw+948512273607017+4#
#pw+336226260444320+5#
#pw+182174213033273+6#
#pw+337336163505631+7#

Now a message should appear something like “Sim restriction off”. That means your phone is now unlocked.

!!Warning!!
If the codes don’t work after entering 5 codes You will lock the ‘CODE UNLOCK FUNCTION’ and it will be possible to unlock the phone only by using a cable/device.

That sounds like a feature to me. I suggest you use that to your advantage and put in some prank calls.

SOURCE: Invalid sim

That's cause your phone , you buy bundle with sim card, so provider protect phone to use sim by other provider, or you ever set phones password to use sim, if nothing like that go to service center to solved your problem.

I have brought a china mobile CITYCALL U800+ from DUBAI TO MUMBAI now i am facing problem invalid sim,i am a vodafone user


Were you using this handset in Dubai or is this the first time? "Invalid sim" has two main issues, 1. sim lock, 2. sim connector problem.

First, open the battery cover, remove the sim card (if it's inside the battery compartment) and clean the metal contacts of the sim connector using a soft brush or ear bud dipped in alcohol or acetone or spirit. After it's cleaned, let it dry and again reinsert the sim card, install the battery and try again.

If it's been used before, then probably you still have the old sim card, if so install it and try again. If it's ok then borrow a sim card from a friend (for few minutes) or use your old or another available (working) sim card and try again. If both the old sim card and the other (borrowed) sim cards are working without any problem, then there's problem with your vodafone sim card which obstructs it to install on the Handset, perhaps voltage issue, in that case, you better get another replacement from Vodafone.

Or if the old one which you were using works, then your phone is sim locked, try to reset it using the default code 1122 or 3344 or 1234 or 5678 (should be on the manual) [click here for more info about china mobile codes]. To do this, go to settings, select "Restore" and enter the code, proceed forward giving positive inputs "yes" or "Ok".

After it's restarted, try again with all the sim cards.

If all the sim cards show the same error, then the handset might needs to be repaired or need to be replaced.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Keep saying insert SIM card


You are trying to use a SIM from another Network or Handset but your phone is LOCKED to your old network and/or to a specific SIM card and number: this is why it is asking you for the unlock code to remove the restriction. It you are no longer under contract or obligations (such as minimum total recharge amounts for apre-paid handsets), then you could try to request the unlock code from the original service provider of your handset.
As for asking to insert SIM card, make sure that the SIM is correctly and securely inserted in your handset SIM holder. Also check that the SIM is still functional by inserting it in another handset: SIM card can be permanently and physically disabled if you attempt to enter too many consecutive invalid codes (usually around 10).
Hope it helps and good luck!
