The Nokia N86 8MP cell phone provides users with an 8-megapixel camera, GPS receiver, Internet radio and video recorder. When purchased, the N86 8MP may be locked to a certain phone service provider. If so, you are not able to use the phone with any other network. By using an unlock code, however, it is possible to use the phone with any service network, such as Sprint, Verizon or T-Mobile. Many Nokia unlock codes can be obtained for free, then entered into the phone to unlock it.
