How to debrand a Nokia N95 phone? Its Dead Easy!
There are a lot of tutorials available around the world wide web about how to debrand your Nokia N95 Cell Phone.
So I am having a coffee, listening to Tool and thinking, since I am a bit free… why not provide one myself? So here I am with this tutorial!
Please note at this point that what you are about to do, you have to do at your own risk. If something you do is not according to the steps there is always a slight possibility of you taking your N95 to the Nokia Customer Care Service Center to fix that.
Okay Here is the main part:
First, obviously make sure that you have installed the Nokia PC Suite either by downloading it from the official site, or from the CD that came with your N95 package. Also, make sure that your phone is properly connected via the USB cable and that it has been detected by your laptop or pc and also make sure that throughout the entire process, power failure, sudden interruptions by any external parties are not happening alright?
Okay Secondly, Get the following two software and install it accordingly in your phone:
The Nokia Software Updater – If you cannot find the N95 updater just grab the closest to it like a Nokia N93 one. That will also work pronto!
Nemesis Services Suite – Go to the applications page to download. Its way below somewhere there, please kindly check the name.
Thirdly, its now time to install the Nemesis Service Suite. Click the program open and follow the command line “Scan for new Device” icon in the top right corner of the screen of your laptop or pc. The screen should then be filled with various information which you can all overlook and straight go and select the “Phone Info” button at the top of the screen. Follow on, and do not get lost now. Click the box marked as “Read”. There might be or will be a lot of information that might or will pop up in the screen but most importantly it will show you the phone code, yes your Nokia Phone code. This is the code you are looking for and this is why you are here doing all this. To change this code is your motto. A standard code for the UK or the EURO (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese)zone is 0534841, for France you can use 0534842 too, for Russia it is 0534849, and for the whole list you can check the Nokia Blog. Now swap the current product code with the new code in accordance to your phone’s residing country. Make sure to double check that you tick the ‘enable box’ and then click the “Write button”. Voila! Success! You have now changed your phones product code just like that! Check the read button, just in case, just to be damn sure and if all is well so far then this should show your new Nokia N95 product code.
Fourth, is my personal advice to back up your contacts and files so that you can safely transfer them to the your custom unbranded Nokia N85 Device, and here is where Nokia PC Suite will help you like Superman. Just use the Backup utility within the Nokia PC Suite and you will be home safely.
Fifth, get a cup of coffee, relax and start updating your firmware accordingly. Remember, that your phone should NOT be disconnected within this process, your computer and your cell phone should be connected at ALL times through the USB cable. One mistake here during the install process can be fatal to your best friend Nokia N95 capishce? Okay Mr. Bravo, now follow the step by step instructions and install the new firmware which should not take you long if you are in a broadband. Please do remember, do not at any time disconnect the phone until it itself blinks in the laptop or desktop screen that it is NOW SAFE TO TURN OFF and blah blah. Don’t go crazy when your phone restarts itself several times within this particular and vital update process. THIS IS NORMAL!
Sixth, since your coffee is finished and you have become the master of debranding the Nokia N95 you have to restore your files and contacts and everything else along with the operator settings and what not. In other words, everything you backed up can now be safely crept inside back in your Nokia N95.
Last but not the least, do not repeat this entire process the next time you update your firmware, you do not need to do anything but just do the update firmware thingy only. If you wish to update your phones firmware in the future you simply need to use the Nokia Updater as usual as your phones product code will not need to be changing again.
Anyway, I hope this helps you debrand your Nokia N95 safely (which it should cause I tested it safely more than four times now and I even get myself biscuits along with the cup of coffee lol)
