hi i am looking for the password for my samsung tocco lite that is standerdly set


The default password is 00000000 (8 zeros in a row).
If you have already set a pin and you have forgot it, follow these steps: *2767*3855#

Use this to reset your phone if you have forgot your pin number

Turn of phone remove battery, then remove sim card, replace battery without sim card, turn phone on and enter code, then wait for phone to reboot itself (do not turn phone off as this could cause problems, so make sure plenty of charge is in the battery). When it has rebooted it is now unlocked.

i forgot my phone password


this happens all the time with samsungs. i went to tmobile.com/forums and found some info to fix mine when i forgot mine as well lol. the problem is it will reset your password and all your other information as well :(

A phone lock or security code on most Samsung handsets can be overridden by performing a full reset on the device. This will set the security codes on the handset back to the default eight zero's (00000000).


Important: This reset restores the original factory settings and will erase all downloaded content, including ringtones, images, programs, and contacts stored in the internal memory. It does not erase data stored on the SIM card or memory card (if available). Make sure you have backed up contacts, calendar appointments, and other data before continuing.


1. Power off the handset

2. Remove the battery

3. Remove the SIM card

4. Reinsert battery ONLY

5. Turn handset on

6. At the Insert SIM prompt screen enter the following code: *2767*2878#

NOTE: If using a handset that was released after July 2009 use this code: *2767*3855#

7. The handset should display E2P custom reset

8. Power off handset

9. Reinsert SIM card

10. Power on handset

11. The phone should be unlocked

NOTE: If you didn't get a E2P custom reset or a Full reset message on the handset your Samsung model may need an MCK code. You will have to call technical support for this code. Please have your IMEI number ready to expedite the process for this code. Your IMEI number is located on a label on the back of the phone,under the battery.
