If you want to unlock your Nokia 1100 RH-18 mobile phone to allow it to connect to any network you want, you need an unlock code. You can try getting one from your phone's carrier, but because an unlock code allows you to connect to competitors' networks, your carrier may not provide you with one. In such a case, you can purchase a code from a website. For both ways, you need to find out your phone's international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) number.
