Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your handset contains your personal information that you don't want to disclose, or it contains photos, schedules,videos, and contact numbers of your friends. You can protect your cell phone form the person using it without your permission. After enabling the password protection, your handset will not be able to receive text calls and text messages. But some people may forget their password after locking it. This tips are for these kinds of people. It is not a difficult task to unlock a phone. Here are some tips and tricks to unlock your phone.
First of all try to remember your phone unlock code. Try PINs that you normally use. Try your birth date or phone's last 4 digits.
Try 1234 or 1111 to unlock it. These lock codes are used by manufacturers as default codes. Then press OK. The six digit default security code is 000000. Network providers sometimes change that code to their own code. If your network provider has not changed it, then you may unlock your phone by trying these default security codes. It is recommended that you reset them to stop others from accessing your private information.
Press the menu key, it may bypass the unlock screen and handset will now be asking to enter security code. If you have forgotten the security code too, send it to the manufacturer's repairing center. They will charge the fee to unlock it as it is not covered under warranty.
To change unlock code or password
Nokia has the default security code 12345.Try that code for all Nokia handsets.
Enter #pwd# and then press send button. It may change or reset your handset password.
If all these tips don't work for you, contact your service provider. They will flash it, and you will be able to reset the password.
Another way to unlock your phone is through reprogram it if it allows doing so. A lot of handsets will let you do this. Itis different for every handset. For Verizon, *228 will reprogram your handset,and will format your phone. After doing this the password or unlock code is set to the default one i.e. the last 4 digits of the handset.
