Thats because IMEI is used with GSM(Vodafone for one) phones and *#06# won't show it what it doesnt have.

If you want your ESN number which you'll need to connect it to Telecom, take off the battery and look on the phone itself
 there will be a few barcodes then the letters ESN followed by numbers like 123/12345678.

The Nokia 3205 was made in both GSM & CDMA so if *#06# doesn't work then its a CDMA mobile meaning it will only work on Telecom's network while in NZ.

IMEI numbers are part of the GSM standard so don't exist on a CDMA phone. The *#06# code will also only work on a GSM phone and not a CDMA phone.

Try 0000, 1234 or last 4 digits of your phone number. Else you'll have to take it to a Telecom Dealer with your receipt and they can reset it on the spot for you... again provided you take in the proof of purchase.

Standard Nokia Security Code is 12345.  For unlocking a phone, Telecom Dealers charge $25incl GST upfront for this (as per Telegistics). This is regardless of what 123 may tell you (just warning in advance if you choose to ask the 123 help desk, althrough you can;t really blame them for not knowing).
