you will need to upload a virgin eeprom and a new flash file
you will also need a flash cable and a data cable

heres some brief instructions
How to repair a Contact Service DCT-3 handset

This is easier than most people make out.

-Flash the phone with the mcu and ppm pack of your choice.

-Update FAID and then reset. If it still doesnt work, do the following:

-Write the virgin eeprom from the appropriate address.

-Turn phone on

-Run Eeprom tools

-Click manual, enter the imei you want. (minus last digit)

-Then click update IMEI.

-Now run imei.exe

-Click read PI

-Then copy the bottom IMEI into the top imei space and click write, if it
fails, do it again til it works.

-Run eeprom tools again, click SP locks button, then update FAID.

-Phone should now be working and unlocked 100%.

good program for flashing is rolis 4.78
hope this helps:)

that seems to be the biggest problem on my hands, because finding a virgin sw for the 8210 is very easy, but, i have looked through the web, but i can not seem to find the sw for 8290... nokia does not cover the gsm 1900 very much, so does anyone know where to get 8290 virgin files???
