How To Unlock NEC e525 locked to O2 from woolies

So you have bought yourself a cracking phone from woolworths for £79.99 – good job.
So you have bought yourself a cracking phone from ebay for > £79.99 – sorry:-(
and you want to unlock it to all networks.

1. Obtain the NEC usb drivers from HERE
2. Buy yourself a NEC usb cable
3. Get yourself the excellent Nectalk from HERE
4. Install drivers and plug the phone in. Your OS will go throught the new device installation.
5. Once all installed, go to the directory where you have unzipped Nectalk and type

nectalk -pt pte 10079 unlock

The software will connect to the phone and then reboot it.

Once rebooted your phone will be fully unlocked.

Please add a comment and let me know how you got on.

  1. Thanks to Gustav Groening (creator of Nectalk)

  2. Hi Alibutt,
    if I unlock this phone can I use it in India also…or currently it works with Orange only ?? Can i buy the same from Ebay.Please reply me back ..sarathb

  3. Hi,
    Once unlocked it will accept ALL sim cards. So if your sim card supports roaming in India, then the phone will work fine.

    So as long as your sim card works fine in India, the phone will work fine.

  4. Hey,

    Can I just ask you where you got your USB cable from and how much it cost…?

  5. Where can i get a usb phone cable, any ideas. I live in the UK. PS, Hi rebecca!

  6. Hi Admin,
    Good Morning.Where to get this phone in London or England. Please let me know .Where to get the USB cable also. Please let me know the address.

  7. Hi guys.

    get your cable from here for £12.99 inc free delivery !!!

    let me know know you get on


  9. Sorry, the program uses a usb cable.
    No infra red i’m afraid.

  10. Is it possible to do any other functions with the USB cable apart from just unlocking the phone?
    Is it possible to transfer java/sounds/pictures to and from the phone with the cable?

  11. Hi,
    Yes you can transfer ringtones, wallpapers, contact details etc… Its well worth it. You cant argue with £12 !

  12. y cant nectalk find my phone in the com ports when i no itis there
    please help thainks

  13. Did you install the USB drivers before plugging the phone in ?
    If you have installed them correctly then NECTALK will use COM port 3/4/5/6 ….
    make sure you install the drivers first, then plug the phone in so windows can install the correct drivers for them.
    good luck

  14. cheers mate unlocked no problem

  15. Can someone give Manchester’s woolworth address so that I can go and purchase there

  16. I have a regular NEC 525. I tried unlocking it using this method but I receive the following message “PTE is incorrect. Response is 0” Can anybody help?

  17. i have downloaded the usb cable software and there is no installer how do i install it

  18. Hi jodykw1982
    are you in the UK ?
    If you are then you should be typing in
    nectalk -pt pte 10079 unlock
    that should work.
    If you are elsewhere, just try
    and see what happens

  19. Hi Chrissy,
    What you do is plug the cable in to the phone (make sure its on) and the plug the cable in to your PC. When the pc detects you have plugged in a new device, it will ask for the drivers. You then point to the unzipped files (usb drivers)
    good luck

  20. sorry to be a pain, i have installed the drivers for the usb cable and unzipped the nectalk thing but when i click on it it just searches through my ports then disappear any ideas on what to do

  21. If you installed everything OK then you DONT double click on nectalk.
    you extract it to a folder, lets c:nectalk. You then go to the command prompt (start – run – cmd) navigate to the extracted nectalk directory and type
    “nectalk -pt pte 10079 unlock”

  22. Hey.
    D/l the software, bought the cable from active mobiles (came in two days) and followed the instructions – unlocked no bother, thanks Ali, Stalewind & woolworths – i’ve got a happy girlfriend now!


  23. please help. Tried to install drivers but will not install no matter what i try. Have read all the above instructions.
    please help!

  24. hi again
    i have done what you said and when i try to navigate to it it says nectalk is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file, please help i really want to get this phone unlocked

  25. if you are still having issues email me (address available from main page)

  26. Worked a treat. Cheers

  27. Can the same method be used to unlock NEC e313 model too..
    Ali help me out

  28. I have created a new post with instructions for this.
    let me know how you lot get on.

  29. I am going to tru to unlock my NEC e525 using your instructions. Would you please let me how can I tell if the phone is unlocked and what are the advantages of a phone being unlocked?



  30. I have also purchased this phone from woolies but can’t seem to find the camera options menu to delete photos and wonder if you can help me please with this thankyou

  31. Hi Reg,
    Once the phone is unlocked you can use ANY sim card from ANY provider. So you can buy pay as you go cards from Vodafone/t-mobile/orange and use which ever is best for you.

  32. Hi Norma,
    Open the phone and press the menu button. Select option 6 (my data). Then select “Pictures”. you will then see a list of all your pictures. Simply press the menu button again and you will find the options you are looking for.
    let me know how you get on.

  33. Adeel Ahmed Butt

    HI Dear Mr Butt, I have NEC e313. Will this software work on this set?? are the instructions same for all the NEC sets???? Well Shukriya for uploading lovely software on Net. BYE

  34. I followed the instructions and everything worked as you said. How do I know that the phone is unlocked without buying a new SIM card and taking the risk that it may not work?

  35. how can u get the e525 to answer incoming calls by simply flipping it open. At the moment after flipping it open i still need to press the green button — it defeats the whole point of the flip

  36. Hi Ray,
    If you cant buy another sim card, you can try entering
    “*#7230# ” it should come back as “not executed”. This pretty much means its unlocked

  37. Hi Adeel Ahmed Butt
    Search my site for “e616” and it will give you temp unlock instructions that work on e616 and e313

  38. Hi bob,
    The way NEC have designed this is that the flip is only active for terminating calls, it will not answer calls for you.

  39. Hello Ali

I extracted the nectalk to my hard drive d:/nectalk. I have tried many things but none of them work. Please help me. Can you walk me through it? Please? Thank you. OHHH FYI I get the same things like # 21, 24, 46, and 48. I tried the suggestions of # 62, 63, 66. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  67. i have a nec e313 locked by network and sp. what does this mean and can i unlock the network and sp? it is locked to 3 network of u.k.

  68. Hi Ali –

    I just purchased a NEC 515 phone and it shipped with your unlocker software; I’ve followed all of the instructions but I can never get past the statement “trying port 3” and “using autodetected Com 3” so I can never get the phone to reboot. I’ve tried typing the command: nectalk -pt pte 10079 unlock from the Run command line. This results in the statements listed above popping up then the application closes. Can you offer any insight or advice?

  75. Hello;

    Hey guys; my name is Bachri; I am writing you with regards of the nec 525 unlocking, my wife had asked me to do so to appreciate the time each one of you took to write her before. I have received my 525 today and immediately got busy to unlock it! My first attempt failed but I realized what I did wrong so I tried the second time fresh on my other compute and I succeeded as I tried a Cingular SIM and it worked. To summarize, assuming you have a good working cable; I got mine from AT&T store because I didn’t want to take chances with the junk cables on Ebay; assuming you have the CD that came with the phone and you have unlock software, you should be able to unlock your phone. The crucial part is to install the driver correctly! If you already screwed up the installation then I would recommend using another computer and start fresh since there will be remnant of the wrong installation in the old computer as it happen to me…I had to use another XP PC.

    Here are detailed instructions for the drivers installation on xp:

    Connecting the USB Cable and NEC Wireless Phone

    Before installing the USB drivers, connect the USB cable to your computer and NEC

    Wireless Phone:

    1. Find the location of the USB port on your computer, usually located at the back of the

    CPU (central processing unit) or case. Some computers have it located on the front.

    2. Insert the computer end of the USB cable into the computer’s USB port.

    3. Gently squeeze the release clips on each side of the USB plug and insert the plug into the

    adapter port of the NEC Wireless Phone.

    _ Be sure that the rectangular opening on the connector is lined up with the rectangular

    opening in the phone. The plug will slide easily into the phone. DO NOT FORCE


    4. Press the (On-Off) key to power-on the NEC Wireless Phone.

    Installing NEC USB Driver Software

    After connecting the USB cable to your computer, the wizard screen should display.

    _ If the wizard does not automatically display:

    _ Ensure the CD is still in the CD drive.

    _ (Depending on your Windows operating system) Select Start, Settings, Control

    Panel, and Add Hardware to display the Add New Hardware Wizard screen

    or Found New Hardware Wizard screen.

    _ Follow the instructions for your particular operating system.

    Windows XP

    To install the USB drivers to Windows XP when the first Found New Hardware Wizard

    screen displays:

    Click Next to continue. The Hardware Installation dialogue box displays.

    2. Click Continue Anyway to continue with the Found New Hardware Wizard screen.

    The USB drivers will begin to be downloaded. When downloading is complete, the last

    wizard screen displays.

    3. Click Finish and another Found New Hardware Wizard screen displays to install the

    next USB driver.

    4. Windows XP will display two (2) more sets of the Found New Hardware Wizard

    screens to install the remaining USB drivers. Follow the previous USB driver

    instructions for Windows XP for each set of the Found New Hardware Wizard screens.

    (Click on Next, Continue Anyway, and Finish.) Make sure you do that to succeed in the driver installation, this is where I missed up first!

    Now what to do next?

    First you want to check if the driver were installed correctly!?

    To make sure: with phone connected to USB,

    go to control panel, phone/modems, and under the modem tab, make sure you

    see the phone, it will be listed as “NEC Portable Phone USB Modem” and a comx port should be listed. If listed then you know the drivers installation went ok.

    Now the unlocking software part:

    Even though Ebay sellers claim to have different unlocking software, they all sell the same program under different name, the name of the one I used is NECTALK, I got it in a zipped format and it should be unzipped before you can run it; in case you don’t have it I am attaching the zipped file to this email, from here follow these steps:

    Nectalk is a DOS mode program, and as such won’t do much if you just run it.

    To unlock your phone (US models), unzip “nectalk” using the winzip utility( into C:nec, nec is a folder you should have created under C:

    Go to the nec folder now which is under C: and double click on “nectalk.exe” this allows the program to find the com port number x of your phone, in my case it was port com4. Of course in doing so your phone is still connected and is powered on.

    then click on start, run, and type the following:

    C:necnectalk -pt unlock

    And hit “enter” your phone will be powered off! Turn it back on and it will be unlocked, Check by entering: “*#7320#” – if nothing happens until you hit Call and then it says “Not executed” or if it says “Not locked” or “Not suppoted”, the phone is unlocked! If you get a list of paired numbers <123><456> for example, then the phone is still locked and you must have failed somewhere in the process. I wish you guys good luck, and do not hesitate to ask if I missed something above, I will be happy to answer you, and again thank you for replying to Shirley’s messages.


  76.

  112. tried to install the USB drivers but the PC said it couldn’t install it. why? i’m running win200.

  113. Hi, Ive followed ur directions, but I have only one problem. I have my phone plugged in with the driverinstalled and NECTALK downloaded and installed, but everytime I open NECTALK, it opens for 4 secondsand then the window closes every time. How can I deal with this problem

  114. I have an NEC 525 phone that I’m using on ATT in the US. Will your method work to unlock my phone as well?

  115. I got my NEC phone unlocked using the program without any problem. I am using ATT service. Before I unlock it, it will not accept other sim card, it will error ” Invalid sim card” if you insert any card other than ATT. However I did not find the *#7230# any useful. It will not tell you whether your phone is lock or unlock. IMPORTANT: It is not true that the phone is unlocked when it return “not executed”. It said the same message before and after I unlock my phone.

    If you have unlock the phone, your NEC can work in ASIA by changing the feq to 900MHz. In countries like, singapore, you can get a sim card for S$20.00(100minutes) or 18.00 for top up(pre-paid, no agreement). In Malaysia, MY$17.00(30 minutes). The phone work in any other asia countries, except Japan, where you have to change the freq to 1800/1900mHz. If you travel to europe, set it to 1800mHz

  116. I ahve nec e616V please send me copy of any softwares which is open the lock.

    Thank you

  117. The instructions worked just as stated. Treat it like any other USB device that needs a driver and it worked, no problems.

  118. I think this does not work on e606. I have tried, no results.
    What do think about his, Ali?

  119. Where’s the file?

    i click to download it and theres nothing there!

  120. I´m having the same kind of troubles as mike

  122. hi Ali, ive downloaded the files; driver and nettalk,when i boot up nettalk it finds ports 3,4,5,6, then the program shuts, how do i type in the unlock code, i haven found any command for installing the drivers either,there is an uninstall icon but no install icon in the drivers folder, Please help.
    Moe, i have a NEC616v on 3G, in England.

  123. Hi Ali, besides using another SIM card to see the phone is unlocked, is there another way? Seem like from uong’s post, *#7230# does not work.

  124. Do you need a sim card in the 525 before you use nectalk. If so does the sim card need to be activated by the service provider. I am unable to have nectalk recognize my phone using all the suggestions contained here.

  125. append to above: I made a little progress using pte0079: program “Found pte code0079” but had
    “error reading from serial port”
    “This function not supported on this system”
    “communicate got bad response for command “Test Mode On” use PTE Command”

  126. append to above: Finally success!!!!
    changed computers and also com ports. (com 6)
    It appears that the pte code is 0079 (10079 for UK)

  127. Can you tell me how to unlock a samsund D500 and a Motorola C975 & V500

  128. You will need a cable solution for that phone i believe. You can buy it from ebay or ask a local phone seller…

  133. hey i have a data cable for it can yo usend mre the software to unlock the NEC E616V phone i don’t want a temporary unlock

  134. Hi Ali
    Thank you for the instructions. It worked like a charm. Only thing I had a issue with was with the PTE code. It worked with 0079 instead of 10079.


  135. hey guys i have unlocked nec 525s and others by following the steps and add a 0 instead of 1 (i.e.00079 instead of 10079). Thanks again to my man Ali.


  136. Hi Ali,
    I have nec 515 and usb cable but I can’t download pics etc. could you help me? do I need some software?
    thank you.

  137. Ali, Thanks a lot for the instructions.
    I have another question though. How can i change the bootup image and delete the images AT&T put on the phone I don’t really need (and other ring-tones as well). I guess how do i ‘debrand’ it?

    Thanks a lot.

  138. I have ATT wireless/NEC 525 phone and I tried unlocking as mentioned above.
    DOS prompt has returned with out any error message. To confirm I I tried entering *#7230# and I got “not executed” message, but when I tried putting in cingular sim card, I’m getting “Invalid SIM” message. Does that mean, my phone is not unlocked?

    Thanks in advance
