I bought the Nokia C3, it is on the Rogers network, i got the unlock code but when it comes to typing the "p" , "w" , and "+" characters i am having a problem.
old nokia's we used to get them by pressing the "*" key more than once. but on the c3 its a qwerty phone so it doesnt recognize it as a special character? so i am unable to unlcok the phone so far... any help will be great?
