I assume that if you cannot remember your password or pin and have got to this point, then you may not have any other options and will lose any contacts, music, pictures and anything that you had saved on your phone, this will not effect your memory card (If you have one inserted, or your SIM card (Which should NOT be inserted during the reset anyway.)

WARNING!!!!!!!! This will reset your phone back to the factory settings.

( Remove the battery and take the sim card out. Power-up the phone, you will see the insert SIM screen. Type in *2767*3855# like you are making a call, press send.
After you enter the code it will take a few seconds ( you should get text saying not to do anything and that it will reset when its done. ) The phone will automatically restart. Shut the phone back off, then put your SIM card back in and power your phone back on. That's it, your done.)

Remember that it WILL DELETE EVERYTHING off of your phone, so i HIGHLY recommend after the reset and for future purposes that you save everything off of your phone and upload ALL your contacts to your SIM or memory card. to do that:
COPY Phone to SIM:
1. open up the address book
2. options
3. OPTION 13: COPY TO SIM ..or.. OPTION 14: MOVE TO SIM
(NOTE: OPTION 13: COPY TO SIM will produce multiple copies, showing PHONE and SIM contacts (both be displayed in your address book list.) To fix this: you will have to open the address book settings, "View Contacts from" : SIM or Phone.)

COPY Phone to Memory Card:
1. open up "My Stuff"
2. options
3. option 4: copy folder
4. Copy to: Memory Card

Hope this helps.

What is default pin code for samsung c3050? cheers


Hi there,

The PIN Code is not stored on the cellphone itself, it's actually stored on the SIM Card. Try using the PIN Code that was last used with this SIM. If you cannot remember it or if it's new SIM, try some of the defaults:

- 0000
- 1234

If both of those don't work, please CLICK HERE to check out my Tip on cracking your own PIN Code.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Best regards,

I have an inactivated sim card and wanted to transfer my pics but I don't remember the pin


Pictures are not stored on a SIM card, they are stored in the phone's internal memory or on a memory card installed in the phone.
To retrieve them you don't need to install the SIM card, the phone should start without it.

Please come back and leave a rating/testimonial if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

My phone is locked as i cannot remember the pin code is there a way to unlock it


first ask your service provider for the PUK numbe. after getting the PUK number, go to security settings and choose change PIN, it will ask for old PIN number, try a random number and then it will show, sim blocked, please insert PUK number.
insert the PUK you got from your operator and then you will be able to change your PIN and hence remove it.

I have a samsung reality. i was fooling around with the settings & set it to NAM2. it's now locked i need a 4 digit code. i've tried all the online suggestions nothing works. i've been up for 4 hours...


Using the default "last four digits" unlock code will not work because switching to NAM2 changes your phone number, and hence changes the default unlock code. You have to find out your new phone number (and new unlock code) under NAM2. Do this:

  • Get to the dialer screen.
  • Dial #43574357* (#helphelp*)
  • Tap "1. system info"
  • The top two entries, MIN and MDN are your new number. Usually they are invalid phone numbers (000-000-????) but the last four digits are your unlock code. Write them down or remember them.
  • Get back to the unlock screen, type in the code.
  • Go directly into the menu and change back to NAM1
  • Don't do that again. :)

I have a samsung sgh E600 that I have not used in years but am having to use it now. Can't remember my pin


If you've changed it in the past to something other than the default pin number of "0000" (four zeros), you may have to reset the unit. If it's asking for the pin before you can access the menu, you'll have to take it to the service provider's branch to have them reset it. Hope it helps

Forgot my LG keybo's lock code


well usually the default code is the last 4 digits of your number, but being that you changed it, there isnt much you can do except go back to the store and have them do it.

Forgat Pin Number


Good day astella, Try using what the default pin would have been, by default it's the last 4 digits of the cell phone number. However if that doesn't work he changed the pin and the only thing you can do is reset the firmware (firmware is the software that runs phone). To get that done stop into one of your local wireless store (ie if you have verizon got to a verizon store, go to your providers store). Stay away from the mall stores they usually don't have a tech in store they just wanna sell a bunch of stuff you don't need. Any good luck, You could also try hacking that phone, if you still have acess to the keypad. Get back too me and let me know what happens.
