Though call barring helps customers avoid certain costs – such as those associated with accidental international calls – the barring feature can prove troublesome when calling outside the country is actually necessary. Although you can partially cancel call barring on your Nokia, you may need your wireless carrier’s assistance to complete the process in total. Enlisting their aid will ensure that the feature has been cancelled on both ends, allowing you to properly make and receive calls.

Carrier Cancellation

Step 1

Contact your carrier to request that call barring be cancelled on your Nokia.

Step 2

Ask the customer service representative for the call barring password should you need to edit your Nokia’s settings. Write this password down for easy reference later.

Step 3

Test your phone’s ability to make and receive calls. If barring is still enabled, you will need to manually disable it on your Nokia.

Phone Functionality

Test your ability to make and receive calls.
