Service Provider unlock information
The Service provider (SP) lock is used to lock the cell phone to the SP’s SIM card. Once the cell phone is locked to a specific operator, and one inserts a SIM card from a different operator the phone will refuse to accept it! The cell phone will however accept another SIM card from the same operator.

NHE-4 has something to do with the type of phone you are dealing with.
Is it GSM 900 (standard), GSM 1800 (DCS1800) or GSM 1900 (PCS1900)?
Nokia 2110, 3110, 8110(i) are all NHE types. The only thing that vary is the code after NHE- (“4”).
NHE = GSM 900, NHK =GSM 1800 – The number in the end = the model (2110i = 4 etc.)

V 5.23 (00-00-00) NHE-5NX

While Short Message Service (SMS) can be configured as a personal service, Cell Broadcast is a general service which is designed for subscribers of a specific cell or topic. For example, a subscriber to cell 050 in England will receive information on the GSM tower currently being used by their phone. This new concept brings a whole new meaning to the term mobile communications as the phone is now able to receive information such as share prices or weather updates without the need of data cards and computers. At present the following message types exist (note: this may vary from carrier to carrier and some carriers may charge for this service):
