Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

How to deal with ''phone requesting a security code''.

Your phone is equipped with one or more codes to protect it against unauthorized use. Please note that the security code, which protects the phone itself, differs from the PIN code, which protects the SIM card.
If your phone is prompting you for a security code and you have not activated one, please try the following:

  • Enter the default security code: 12345. Only try this once.
If your phone still requests a security code, please bring it to the nearest Nokia Care point for inspection.

nokia security code


Your phone is equipped with one or more codes to protect it against unauthorized use. Please note that the security code, which protects the phone itself, differs from the PIN code, which protects the SIM card.

If your phone is prompting you for a security code and you have not activated one, please try the following:

  • Enter the default security code: 12345. Only try this once.
If your phone still requests a security code, please bring it to the nearest Nokia service centerfor inspection.
  • Some operators configure phones so that they only work with their brands' SIM cards. In this case, if you enter the wrong code three or more consecutive times, the phone may lock permanently. If this happens, contact your operator or service provider for assistance.
  • In other cases when you enter the wrong code three or more consecutive times, the phone switches to a "sleep mode" and does not accept any entries for the next 15 minutes. In this case, power the phone off, then back on, let it sit idle or untouched for 15 minutes, then try again or bring it to a Nokia Care point.
