PuriFone – a mobile phone trading company – provides TAG approved internet-removal services for a limited range of Nokia phone models. This is available only via TAG, as PuriFone does not offer retail services.

Once connectivity is removed, all internet features are completely disabled, i.e. it is not possible to use apps or features which require internet connectivity.

Devices can be dropped off at select TAG offices with an average service duration of 3 business days. Price is £15 per handset, and clients are advised to backup important data as the removal process will delete all data from the device.

If you are unable to backup your Nokia phone, PuriFone can upon special request backup and restore your data for an aditional fee of £5.

To find the Nokia model number, key in the digits *#0000# from the main menu. This will display the model number and other information. The model of the handset will either appear in full Nokia C2-01 or with the letter N before the model number NC2-01. To return to the home screen, press the end call button.

Alternatively, remove the back cover and battery to locate the IMEI label. The IMEI label is usually a sticker with a couple of barcodes on it. The model number will be printed somewhere on this label.
