Nokia 3589i PRL Version/WAP Tunnel/Lock Code?

    I would like to check my PRL version number in my 3589 and would
    appreciate any info about how to do that.

    Also has anyone set up a WAP tunnel successfully on this phone? If
    so, how?

    Finally, I can't seem to find the correct Lock Code for the Security
    Settings. This is a brand new phone and I have tried 1234 as the
    manual suggests, 0000, and the last four digits of my phone number.
    Nothing works!! Is there a special lock code for these phones? I am
    able to get into the field test mode by entering *3001#12345#.

    Please see my postings on this subject in this newsgroup about this, over
    the last 2 weeks. I had to return the phone to the store in order to get
    it to recognize the lock code.

    After being successfully reprogrammed, and set to power-up with security
    lock on, it actually comes up locked only half the time ... for reasons I
    can't figure out either.
  3. Frank,

    As for checking the PRL version, you need to key in: *#837# and then
    select More, you will see the PRL right there.

    I am really not sure with the WAP tunnel, but I know the phone has
    three locations for server IP addresses under *3001#12345#.

    Thirdly, your question about the lock code. I don't know what to tell
    you if the last four of your phone number don't work. It worked for
    me and many others. I would bring it to a technician and complain
    about...and while your there, ask about a firmware update! :)

    Mike & Gordon,

    Thanks for the response. I can now check the PRL as *#837# worked
    fine and also the last four digits started working for the lock code.
    Can't figure that one...

    Now to try for the WAP Tunnel. I saw the entry for the IP Address but
    didn't open it. There must also be a place for the port number and
    will also probably have to set up the NAM2 entry. I might wait on
    this until someone else has done it correctly.

    I am well pleased with this phone as I live in a fringe area and it has
    yet to drop the digital signal and go into analog as both the CDM 9500
    and the LG 4400 do in certain areas of our house. When checking the
    signal strenths in Field Test I noticed they are also 2-3 units lower
    than the 9500 which was next best. No call has dropped and the audio
    is quite good.

    Again thanks for the help.

    Frank
