Extra memory for 6220

microSD card The Nokia 6220 supports microSD cards for memory expansion. Nokia can sell you their own microSD cards, but their prices for Nokia-branded cards are higher than for standard cards. We've not heard of any incompatibility with non-Nokia cards, so it's worth shopping around to get a third-party card. Here are a few online options:

  • Amazon - Always a good choice for reliable delivery at good prices
  • - bid for new cards at low prices!

For more details, see our Memory Card page

Can I use the 6220 in the States?

Yes. The Nokia 6220 is a quad-band phone operating on EGSM900/1800 (Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific), and EGSM 850/GSM1900 (USA, Canada, South America).

There should be no problem using the Nokia 6220 with network operators in these countries. Roaming restrictions from your network operator may prevent use of some services in other countries.

What's my 6220's serial number? Enter '*#06#' as if it were a phone number, to get your handset's serial number (known as the IMEI) - useful to keep a note of in case your phone is stolen. You may also need this number when registering certain types of software.
Copy to memory card For details of how to copy files to/from an installed memory card, see the answer in our Series 60 FAQ.
Data conversion For help with information on converting your Contacts, Calendar and documents for viewing on your phone, see our Conversion page for some general guidance.
Various 6220 codes: Below is a list of the various code types you'll find on the Nokia 6220:

Lock code
  • Length: 5 digits
  • Detail: Prevents access to certain functions on the phone
  • Set from: Tools > Settings > Security > Phone & SIM
  • Default: The default lock code for Nokia Series 60 devices is 12345.
  • Lost? - If you've changed this code and forgotten it - you will need to visit a Nokia authorised service centre, who will be able to reset the lock code for you.
PIN code
  • Length: 4 digits
  • Detail: This is an optional 4 digit code to protect your SIM
  • Set from: Tools > Settings > Security > Phone & SIM
  • Lost? - If you keep trying, you'll eventually get locked out and need to contact your network operator for a PUK code (see below)
PUK code
  • Length: 8 digits
  • Detail: You'll be asked for this 8 digit code if you've entered the wrong SIM code more than the allowed number of times. You'll need to contact your network operator to get this lock lifted.
Network locking code
  • If your phone was fixed to work on a specific network (for example, Orange), this lock may prevent you from using another SIM in the handset. You may see "SIM card rejected" or "SIM card unaccepted". This lock can be lifted for you by contacting the network operator in question (there may be a fee for this).

Memory Card lock code

  • Our forum often gets messages from people that are seeing "Memory card locked". This means that your microSD card has had a password set on it. If you know the password, and want to remove it, go to Tools > Memory.
  • Lost? - Sorry, but we don't know of a way to remove this code. The advice we've seen via our forum suggests that you may want to format your memory card either from the Tools > Memory > Options > Format mem. card, or using a PC Memory Card Reader. If you know of a better solution, please pass this on via our forum to help others that have managed to lock themselves out of their cards!
