Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

How to unlock your phone if you forgot the password

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.

How do I contact a live person to ask questions about my 4th gen iPad?


I am a live person and an iPad, iPhone expert. :>)

Your iPad contains a main album called 'All Photos', there are other Sub Albums, Favourites, People Places, Videos, Selfies, Panoramas, Bursts, Screenshots, Recently Deleted.

All images go into 'All Photos, they are sorted to make it easier for you to find images, but linking to them via the Sub-Albums. If you Delete from any of the Sub Albums, it also gets deleted from All Photos. If you delete from All Photos, it will go from the Sub Album.

They are not 'DUPLICATED', but linked.

i used to get calls from this number 08067337300 i want to know who z this kindly help me out


Hello,

When a mobile number calls you, the only way you can find out who it is, is if the person tells you who he/she is, or if you have the number on your contact list. Besides that, there is no other way to tell who the person is, even if you contact the customer care of the numbers service provider, they would not disclose who the person is for security purpose.

Only if you go to your country's communication commission company and ask them for the details of such person, besides that, there is no means to know who the caller is.

Take care and good luck
Hope this helps!
