Once I have submitted a registration form, how long will it take to be approved?
Standard requests with complete and accurate information are approved within two business days. Note: For Nokia employees, you do not need to register. Simply login with your CSL/CIP.
What are the rules for creating a user name?
For customers and business partners, your user name is your company's Internet email address (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org). Your user name is case insensitive. Because of personalized entitlement & subscription features of the support site and the requirement to protect customer data and privacy considerations, no "group" logins are permitted. All user names/accounts must be assigned and used by an individual user. For Nokia employees, your user name is your CSL.

What are the rules for creating a password?
The new password cannot be the same as the current password.
The password length must be minimum 8 characters.
The new password cannot match the previous 10 passwords.
The password needs to have 1 letter and 1 special character (non alphanumeric).
Please avoid using spaces. The system does not recognize white spaces. Don't forget that passwords are case sensitive. For security reasons, we will not include your password in email messages. You will need to remember the information you provide on your registration form. If you have forgotten your password, please select "Forgotten Password" on the login page.
What are the rules for creating the security question and answer?
In addition to your password, you will be asked to specify a security question and answer on the registration form. You determine both the question and answer (e.g., What is my mother's maiden name? What is my favorite color? What is my dog's name?). It is an additional layer of security used to validate you. For example, you will need to know the answer to your security question to assign yourself a new password. The security question and answer are both case insensitive. You will get an error message if you use the same word(s) for both the question and answer.
During registration, I received an error message indicating that my user name and password already existed. What does it mean?
